Richard Chai Love Fall 2014 Goes Madcap With Unexpected Pairings

New Yorker hipsters like unexpected layering almost as much as they enjoy craft brews. Richard Chai Love's Fall 2014 collection wants you to wear your cardigans over your stripes under your leather jackets. Here are eight looks to prove that when it comes to texture, too much is never enough.

A striped asymmetrical skirt says “I bought this at a thrift store and cut it myself” but a shearling-lined leather jacket says “I’m tougher than you and can wear whatever skirt I want.”

Wear a shiny pantsuit to the office. Do it right now. You will be the hottest girl at the water cooler.

That key-hole neckline is keeping no one warm, which is why you need to layer it under a fur-trimmed parka. Form + function.

Long Cardigan + Satin Dress

A long cardigan over a vintage-y satin dress should make you look like a sad Stevie Nicks rip off. Put a leather jacket over it, however, and you have a match made in sartorial heaven.

This pull over sweater tapers off to a leather trim. The only thing to do with a piece like that? Throw it on over your PJs and bam! You have an outfit.

Geometric Chiffon + Crepe Turtleneck

Why wear a jacket when you can protect your arms with a sheer, wrinkly turtleneck blouse?

You’re channeling the Mad Hatter on top and a lingerie closet below. This shows you appreciate both a good film reference and a glam undergarment.

Brocade + Leather + Maxi Skirt

A thick leather jacket balances the slippery satin maxi skirt and makes the brocade blouse less ostentatious. Sometimes more really is better!
