In this regular series, we demonstrate how our most avid readers sport the trends in our magazine. Look for it on What's Right Now every week, and be sure to try out a look or two yourself and tweet us a photo @InStyle using #inspiredbyinstyle. Today, we’re featuring Reader of the Week Tabia Marie Weathersby.
I've always loved denim miniskirts, but pairing them with graphic Ts tends to look frumpy, IMHO. Seeing Rosie Huntington-Whiteley's street chic jacket and skirt combo in November's "The Look: Punk with Spunk" propelled me to drape a leather moto over my shoulder, and it instantly elevated the whole look. Within seconds, I felt ready for my street style close-up. Whether you choose to spring for a jacket or skirt, leather is always a solid investment.
If one of our stories has inspired you to mix it up, send us a pic (300 dpi or larger) of your transformation to firstname.lastname@example.org, submit it through InStyle's Tumblr, or tweet us @InStyle with the hashtag #inspiredbyinstyle. You could be featured in InStyle and on InStyle.com! And really, what’s cooler than that?
