Hi Friends! I am Dani Sauter, the blogger and content creator behind Blonde in the District, a Washington DC based blog. My blog is focused on fashion, lifestyle, beauty, and travel, with an emphasis on curvy style and women empowerment. I have been blogging two and a half years and the blogging world has introduced me to some amazing people, like Niki, who continue to inspire me daily.
I define my personal style as classic with an edge. I love to build upon classic pieces by adding an edgy flair and statement accessories. When it comes to clothing, I stick with staple items and always assess the cost-per-wear, plus I look at the number of ways I can wear it. I like to get the most use out of clothing and try to buy items I can wear for work, for day, and for play, so when Niki approached me about a guest three ways to wear, I was totally in!
For my 3 ways to wear, I’m featuring a leather pencil skirt. This is a must-have in any closet, and I love its classic versatility. Since I’m a curvy hourglass/8 shape, I tend to gravitate towards skirts and dresses, as I feel they look better on my body. I also normally opt for fitted clothing that hugs my curves, as opposed to loose clothing that will make me appear bigger. See below how a leather skirt can be styled for work, for day, and for play!
I paired my leather skirt with a classic red blouse, neck scarf, and heels for an office-appropriate look. I tucked the top into the skirt to give definition to my waist and opted for pointy-toe pumps to elongate my legs. Since the top is boat neck, I defined my neck with the scarf.
To make the skirt more casual, I paired it with a printed tee with the hem tied in a knot to define the waist, scarf, light jacket, and comfy slip-on sneaks that can take me from brunch to errands or shopping for the day. I wore a longer-length coat with the skirt, so the flow of the outfit isn’t cut in half by a short-length jacket.
This is where I like to go all out with my style! Even though I’m curvy, I don’t shy away from certain looks, such as this sheer bodysuit. I think there is something to be said for women who rock certain trends, void of body type. I embrace my curves by showing them off in a sheer body suit with the leather skirt, and again elongate my legs with these clear lucite heels. To top ff the look, I added a vintage belt that I wore as a necklace and a fabulous embellished clutch bag.
