I found this leotard at Heart Boutique on Capitol and 19th in Sacramento – one of my favorite places! Made out of velvet, it is by far the most comfortable leotard i’ve ever worn. Not a super common material for signature pieces, but it definitely caught my attention.
As someone who mostly dresses down, I wanted show how to style this leotard in two different ways. Lmk which look you like, best! 😉
The first is a more dressed up look with two of my favorite pieces. The green purse above is something I picked up during a trip to London, and goes perfectly with almost anything!
When I travel or thrift, I always look for signature pieces in solid colors that I can wear with at least 3 outfits in my closet at home. It’s part of being a nomadic minimalist, I guess.
I wore the black leotard with high-waisted black skinny jeans. I wear a lot of black – my closet is almost all black. This outfit worked well with the contrast of the black velvet, and the black jean material.
Mixing fabrics / patterns has become one of my favorite ways to mix up a look lately. It was cold night so I wore my faux fur jacket (also thrifted). Below is the full outfit (minus accessories), where you can see the back of the leotard.
This was a really fun shoot, and pretty meaningful to me as it was my last in Sacramento before moving.
Below are two full-length shots of my take on this casual look.
To dress it down, I wore this with the same pants from look one, but paired it with a jean jacket and Adidas classics to give it more of a casual vibe.
This shoot was done a few days after arriving back from Thailand. All of my little trinkets I picked up along the way – like this necklace, and bracelets defintley helped to dress this look down.
Lastly, I would like to give a shout out to Kristin for making this collab. happen & for taking me to McDonalds on the way to this shoot! The hunger was real.
Till next time!
