We love a little leather in our wardrobe and we're not picky about it being real or faux. We like both as long as it's a stylish addition to our wardrobes. Check out our Friday Favorites picks for the top styles to add to your closet. I'm about to order several pieces so my closet will have more than a little leather love going on.

Combined Faux Leather Coat, $179 Zara

Sometimes leather can be a little too much for me, but like my pick last week, I do love the look of mixed fabric media that includes leather. That is why I love this coat from Zara! It's just the perfect amount of leather to give a boring coat a super hip, funky edge. So in love!

Lafayette 148 New York 'Velvet' Lambskin Leather Jacket, $448.98 Nordstrom

When we shop we always want the best bang for our buck. Investing in staple pieces that will never go out of style, like leather! It will have you excited to pull out your favorites year after year. I love a classic motto style jacket. This one is edgy and chic, especially in a deep wine. This paired with a skirt and bow tie blouse is perfect for a workday and with dark wash jeans and a high heel, perfect for a weekend.

Street Swag

Lauren's Pick

Laser Cut Satchel, $70 Sole Society

I love the delicate, intricate laser-cut designs I've been seeing everywhere- especially with the classic look of leather. This edgy satchel from Sole Society is the perfect size to fit all of my purse essentials and then some. Sure, it may be faux leather but the price and the look suit me just fine!

The countdown begins! 18 days until Christmas and we're excited to get the tree and decorate the house. Tune in to our videos starting next week filled with gift suggestions, recipes, decor, entertaining and even how to create your own ugly holiday sweater because sometimes you need a break from being fancy. Enjoy!

Alison's Pick

Jay Godfrey, Adams Maxi Dress, on sale for $270 Cusp

May I pour you a drink? That's what I imagine saying to guests when they arrive at the door for the holidays while wearing this stylish, yet comfortable dress. Just needs some dangly earrings and a big cuff.

Christina Wright's Pick

Essie nail polish, $8 bottle Essie

I am kinda a nail polish fanatic, okay okay, I AM a nail polish fanatic. (There's no "kinda" about it.) I have so many shades and different brands, that I actually have researched buying some sort of modern style nail salon display case for them. Yes, it's that bad! My favorite line of polishes is from Essie. So many amazing colors, and they paint on like a dream! I hope my stocking is filled with these colors from their winter collection. You hear me Santa? I would be such a good girl...with awesome nails of course!

Lauren's Pick

The Body Shop Fragrance Oils and Burners, $16 Burner, $5 for each oil The Body Shop

Each day this week, I've had a different holiday scent flowing through my apartment; not because I've been baking cookies or putting up a fresh spruce tree, but because I've been burning these oils from The Body Shop. I like them so much better than scented candles because they last longer, the scent spreads more, and the best part- you can mix fragrances for a unique combination. My favorites around the holidays are Juniper Berry, for a sweet yet woodsy feel, and Vanilla Bliss, which has me craving sugar cookies. I also like their more fruity scents, like Exotic and Peach.

Studded Collar Necklace, $30 Etsy
The collar necklace is definitely a trend to try! The embellished neckpieces help make any outfit standout. Wear them with your favorite knit sweater to add some style and sass. You can also channel your inner Audrey Hepburn and pair it with your favorite LBD for the "Breakfast at Tiffany" look. It's the perfect accessory to wear to any holiday and New Year party.
