Great look, don’t you think?
We haven’t discussed the leather jacket here for a bit but we have been featuring them in the SHOP and on Insta stories. We found this photograph from 2015 and were reminded how good a leather jacket can be over a pretty dress. This dress is long gone but the look isn’t.
A leather jacket – the shorter model – is a brilliant wear for right about now.
It doesn’t have to be worn with jeans or tailored pants, try it over a longer style dress and mix it with your prints if you wear them. The cropped jacket is flattering with a fuller dress; the hugging around the body creates a slimmer silhouette – a “contrived” but complimentary baggy look. A more form-fitting dress works well too if the volume is not your thing.
When I introduced My Latest Crush I focused the wardrobe essentials but in passing I noticed a couple of very beautiful longer style dresses perfect to re-create the above style. Investments definitely or divine inspiration, but ones to last a lifetime. Wearing these with a leather jacket is the classic example of turning dressy into casual. Remove the sneakers and the coat, add the heels and drop earrings and it is party time.
This weekend I’m bringing out the dress and leather jacket combo; I can’t believe I forgot about this beauty. xv
