This week we're showing you how to turn something from basic to date-night sexy. It's all about having the right essentials in your closet. In this case, a basic crewneck sweater (think J.Crew or Lands' End) and a skinny black jean (could be Paige denim or GAP). I created two looks from the basics--both use leather.
In the first one, I added a swingy leather skirt and a sexy boot. For look two, I added a wrap top in leather and a bootie. Very downtown, very chic. Hope this inspires you to look at your basics in new ways.
