chambray, you stay.

One of the hardest parts of fall dressing is figuring out how to get all the textures you have going on to work together. Does a fuzzy coat go with leather leggings? Sequin T-shirt with ripped jeans?

Direct all your wardrobe questions to Ashely Madekwe who has nailed fabric mixing evidenced by the denim, leather, and tweed outfit she wore while hosting the 7 For All Mankind x Malia Kent launch party in California. The actress paired her 7 For All Mankind jacket and top with a shiny black pencil skirt, red Chanel bag, and black stiletto booties. On paper it seems like a dangerous combo, but on Madekwe it looks amazing. We think matching her lipstick to her purse was a big part of the look's success--who doesn't love a red lip AND a red bag!?

The best part might be that Madekwe's actual top and jacket are available to buy online now, so you can copy this ourfit verbatim. We're thinking of making it our style uniform for fall.
