    Very helpful! Can I make a request though? Can you do more looks for college students? I definitely love the first look but I’m afraid I can’t wear heels in school. 🙂

      You can easily swap most of the heels I wear for flats or boots. If you have a specific questions on what style would work to swap I’d be happy to help!

    Are those Zara peather leggings or pants? I have been hesitant of getting leather leggings/pants because I don’t like it when they look too tight. However, I like how your pants(or leggings) are more loose fitting.

      They are leggings but have pockets in back which make them look more like pants. Since they have elastic at the waist I was able to go a size up so they weren’t skin tight.

      Try express. They have faux leather leggings that are a bit more “forgiving”. Side zip etc. They come in black and white

    I LOVE this trend! I love how you mixed leather and camo with a feminine necklace in your first look. My favorite way to wear this look is to mix softer, girlier colors with “Army Chic” accessories like these “General” flats from CL by Laundry.
    Love your A-Z Trend Guide! I can’t wait to see more!
