Outfit Idea 1

For this outfit we chose an everyday leather bag by Proenza Schouler. The outfit itself is very simple – it consists of skinny jeans and a white T-shirt. Still the combination is very effective, thanks to the statement jacket and Jeffrey Campbell Lita Shoes that give the whole outfit a cool touch.
