Lately I’ve been obsessed with leather leggings. They’re an amazing staple for the winter. Ever since graduating it’s been a little difficult to dress up everyday. Leather leggings are an easy way to spruce up any look, yet stay effortless. The best thing is that they come in many patterns and styles, so it’s super easy to change it up a bit. Even though they’re leather, they shouldn’t be paired with short shirt or blouse. Pair with a longer sweater, button down or tunic for an effortless chic look. Below are some options if you’re looking to add leather leggings to your wardrobe.

Corner Collection by Warby Parker

Sunglasses and glasses are always a staple no matter what season you’re in. Maybe you want to buy sunnies for the fall or ditch your contacts for the new school year. If you’re someone like me, I have a hard time finding a sleek and chic pair of sunnies that are absolutely perfect and flexible to wear year round. Finding the perfect pair of sunnies or everyday glasses lies in the shape in the frame and if it’s flattering for your face shape. If you fall into that category, I am pleased to announce that Warby Parker has released the Corner Collection today.

The Corner Collection experiments with traditional shapes with unique shades of horn-inspired acetate and stainless steel. The collection consists of five new frames—Hutton, Topper, Goodney, Teddy, and Quentin. Each of these frames have a really cool aesthetic, yet gives a classic and effortless vibe. Each of the styles come in two new hues as well—Rhubarb and Quartz. These two colors are perfect and flattering for the warm and cooler months as well.

I’ve recently come to terms that a lovely classic cat eye looks great on me. The Goodney has a cat eye shape, yet it is revamped in a way. This frame will bring together and polish any look. The Goodney readers would look amazing for someone who’s going back to school or for someone who wants to revamp their look. A stylish pair of readers or everyday glasses will start your school year or a job on the right foot. I centered this look around the Goodney glasses, keeping it simple, yet classic and trendy. I’m in love with the oversized coat trend, so I thought this grey Purity coat from Weekday was perfect. To complete the look I also opted for a white Slit Blouse from Weekday, Paisie Peg Leg Trousers from John Lewis, Miu Miu sneakers, and a Mulberry Mini Cara Delevingne Nappa backpack.

Remember, every for every pair sold, a pair is distributed to someone in need. So, head into your nearest showroom or store and try on a pair of sunnies or readers from the collection. I’m a thousand percent positive that there’s a frame for everyone. The styles are simply to die for! If you purchase from the Corner Collection feel free to show us on Instagram.

Guest Editor: 3 Sunglasses That Flatter Your Look

It’s important to know which sunglasses are the most flattering for your look -no matter what look you’re going for. So if you’re looking for what sunglasses look great for your face shape or what sunglasses are matching your outfit, take a look at these flattering frames.

Tip 1: Know Your Face Shape

One of the best ways to select the most flattering frames is to know what face shape you have and what kind of frames look good on that face shape. Round faces, for instance, need square frames or aviators to introduce angles. Square faces need round frames or aviators to soften the look. Heart-shaped faces need a lot of focus high up to look less top-heavy, so the ideal frame is the cat eye. Oval face shapes like Kate Hudson’s (below) look great in almost any sunglasses frames, but it’s best to stick to aviators like these bamboo aviators from Gucci or these square Versace frames.

Tip 2: Be Conscious of Color

Readers of People Style Watch and Us Magazine are going crazy with desire for Gwen Stefani’s recent look. They want the boots, they want the sweater, and they want the frames. Why are the frames so great? Because her speckled frames perfectly match in color to her sweater. Be conscious of color: pick some really funky, colorful frames, and then pick a bold piece that draws out that color.

Tip 3: Go Vintage

Whether you need to rely on Ray Ban’s Wayfarers or if you’re willing to try a Tom Ford cat-eye, the most flattering sunglasses for your 2014 look involves throwback style. You can look like a pin-up princess or you can look like a retro rocker -it’s up to you, but whatever you choose, go vintage chic for a classy look.
