What We're Buying: Leather Midi Skirts and the Perfect Jackets For Work and Play
It’s a new year, and no, we didn’t resolve to stop shopping. Instead, we’re kicking off 2014 off with some new purchases. And this week fashion bloggers Whitney Powell and Brittany Hebb are sharing some fun purchases (and styling tips) with us. (Yes, you should take your credit cards out now!)

Whitney Powell, co-founder of style blog Britt + Whit: I love a different take on a classic trend like leather. While most of the time the black leather jacket is the go-to choice, I like to mix it up with white leather. This white leather skirt from ASOS gives a subtle sophistication. It is also work appropriate and warm!

Brittany Hebb, co-founder of style blog Britt + Whit: I’m loving menswear inspired prints for winter. A chic menswear blazer (like this one on sale at ASOS) works well for the office or a night out on the weekend. It’s such a versatile piece that always looks polished and sophisticated. Try pairing it with more feminine pieces for an interesting contrast.

Whitney Little, Associate Producer: I noticed Zoë wearing a to-die-for draped moto jacket around the office, but assumed it was way out of my price range so I didn’t even bother asking her about it. Then the product was featured on Joyus, and I was thrilled to learn that the Blank NYC jacket-meets-sweatshirt is under $100 (!).
I ordered it right away, and thank goodness I did, because the product sold out nearly instantly. Seriously, people are going nuts for this jacket the way my little sister goes nuts for One Direction tour tickets. And for good reason: The vegan leather is high quality, and the stretchy fabric isn’t constricting in the arms like most moto jackets. Plus, the draped front adds a feminine touch that sets it apart from other outerwear. It just arrived in the mail last week, and I’ve already gotten tons of compliments. To say I’m obsessed is an understatement.
But don’t just take my word for it! Hear Zoë talk about why it’s the best winter purchase you’ll make, then sign up for the wait list ASAP.
