Stepping out in a fitted black dress and a black leather jacket in 95 degree weather is not for the faint of heart. Although the leather was literally sticking to me, I had to deliver a post talking about these staple pieces. I had been searching for a black, fitted midi dress for months! I finally found this Forever 21 midi dress under $10 - yes, I just said that. I wanted one in every single color. It is so comfortable, stretchy and flattering. Over this, I added my favorite leather jacket from Topshop. Mixing these two give the perfect casual but edgy look for day or nighttime. To play up this look and add some lightness, I threw on my white sneakers from Zara (similar here) and large reversible tote. If you're looking for something effortless, comfortable and put together - this is definitely the way you want to go.
