Mixed Media Jacket from Free People

Do you struggle with transforming your outfits from day to night? Don’t worry, CF is here to help turn that daily annoyance into a fun challenge. Class to Night Out focuses on one piece per week, and aims to help you take your look from study sessions in the library to dancing the night away.

Mixed media jackets are all the rage when it comes to outwear this fall. This trend, which incorporates materials like denim, leather, and twill, was all over the fall runways, and these jackets are starting to make appearances in stores. We think the best way to add some flair to your outfit on cool fall mornings and evenings is to throw on a light twill or denim jacket with knitted, faux leather, or faux fur accents.

For this post, I found a beautiful taupe-colored cotton jacket featuring faux leather trim and front draping, and will be showing you how to wear this mixed media jacket for both class and a night out. Read on to learn how to style this trend for fall:

Mixed Media Jacket: Class

Fall is all about layering, especially if you're in a Northeastern or Midwestern climate like me. Mornings and evenings are chilly enough to want a jacket, while afternoons can still feel like summer!

For this look, I paired a heather gray scoop neck tee underneath this lightweight, taupe-hued jacket. The taupe and gray look wonderful together, and it looks even better when the rest of the outfit is kept neutral with black destroyed skinnies, heeled booties, and a studded tote. The studded cuff plays off the detailing on the bag and adds a little more edge to this sleek classroom ensemble. Keep your beauty routine cool yet casual with a liquid liner cat eye and natural lip balm.

Mixed Media Jacket: Night Out

Product Information: Jacket, Top, Skirt, Heels, Bag, Earrings, Nail Polish, Lipstick

This outfit is the perfect combination of edgy and girly, since the taupe hue of the jacket is contrasted with black and gunmetal accents. Pair a ladylike blouse with lace cutwork underneath the jacket for a cool tone-on-tone look. Contrast the sweet vibe on top with a black asymmetric zip skirt.

Neutral pointed-toe heels complement the top/jacket combo and make your legs look miles long, while a black and gunmetal bag perfectly accents the edgy feel of the skirt. Add a little sparkle with these dainty silver earrings, and don't forget about makeup. A matte lip and shiny black manicure will look sleek and trendy on a night out.
