Olivia Pope Kerry Washington to class-up our lazy-girl fall basics and make them Saturday-night chic! A glamourous take on the sweatshirt + leggings + boots combo of our co-ed days, Kerry’s use of unexpected textures , fancier footwear, and sultry makeup take this look to the next level. The elements are practically the same: leggings + boots + sweater – but the look? SO much better. The obvious standout, must-buy piece in this outfit are the sequined legging, which, believe it or not, are actually a lot more versatile than you might think. Here, they provide your look with a glamourous foundation with minimal effort. Next on the list? The sweater. How does the sweater in the new formula differ from your go-to? Simply put, it offers more. Look for a piece with some sort of unexpected detail–like fun elbow patches or pannels, uncommon tailoring–think, an especially oversized, verging on cape-like cut–or something fashioned in an ultra-luxe textile–hello, cashmere! Last on your list is a pair of kickass ankle boots, which, aside from being super on-trend this season, break up your look and affords more edge than a pair of equestrian boots, but more comfort than your classic Saturday night stilettos. Now all that’s left is your beauty game: opt for a smokey eye, a creamy neutral lip, and PILE on the mascara. Result: Irresistible. Want the look?
