Enter: the quilted (leather) jacket
Back in the Spring on my school trip to Europe, I tried on this vegan leather jacket at Zara in Vienna and LOVED it. It was a little too pricey for me to justify buying it, but this summer it went on sale and I snagged it online, yay! It’s quilted and 3/4 sleeve and black and perfect, see:
So I know I’ll wear it with pants a lot because it’s easy, mostly like this:
I also want to make more of an effort to wear it with skirts and dresses this season to toughen them up a bit.
DAY: Big scarf, full skirt and low heels make this look perfectly put-together for daylight activities, and the bag is great for holding lots. and lots.
EVENING: My leopard dress is a titch longer (just above the knee), but it’s the same idea. Pointy black stilettos, a black clutch and a messy ponytail will complete the look for me.
WORK: I love the monochromatic look, and this is so cool for creative work. The sunglasses are key to this look: they need to be big and dark. Winning!
