All hail the queen. Mindy’s outfit here is perfect for work, cocktails or even date night.  She pairs edgy pieces with classic details for a trendy yet contemporary ensemble. To get her look, start with a black boyfriend blazer, similar here and here. Pair with a loose-fitting black tee shirt-like this one. And now for those leather leggings!  A closet staple that you’ll be putting on repeat for years to come.

And the best part is, they are flattering on every figure type. For a wallet and eco-friendly version, check out these faux leather leggings. If you’re in the mood to burn some dollas, we are obsessed with these luxe ones.

Don’t forget about the accessories! Red pumps are every girl’s BFF. They exude power, class, and overall fierceness. We love these, and these too.

Our girl Mindy certainly loves to splurge on iconic designer pieces, like her Givenchy Antigona handbag and we can’t blame her! That bag is everything right now. But if it’s a little (or a lot) out of your price range, opt for a similar stylish satchel like this one.

And finally, finish off the look with some glam, gold-rimmed aviators like these.

There you have it—boss lady status in no time.
