Give me heels, a good looking pair of sunglasses and a moto jacket, and I’m ready for anything. There aren’t many combos that make me feel more confident. Date night looks are my favorite since I can be a bit more fun and edgy. I wouldn’t wear this look to the grocery store.
Layering a short jacket over a longer top gives the illusion that I have a more shapely waistline. Wearing the same color of top and bottom gives me that long, lean look. Wearing shoes in the same tone as my pants visually adds length to my legs. Matching leather goods was important in generations past. Now we know it is smart to use the colors to achieve balance in your shape and to add a pop of color. For example, if I wore black shoes with this look, the black would stop the eye there and make the legs look shorter. A black belt would create a horizontal line and a break in the vertical line, making me look shorter and broader. Handbags are a chance to add a pop of color, texture, whimsy or an accent color. Have fun with them!
The guava faux suede jacket is here. If this color is too bright for you or the cut is too short, here is another option. (Take 15% off when you shop at My Fair Lady in July with the code Shop19.) Affiliate or referral links in my posts may generate a small commission to me at no extra cost to you.
In many cases, the items I wear are from a few years ago. I no longer buy heels, but I found a similar style with a wedge heel here. A similar clutch is here. The white tank is here. My white pants are three years old. Here is a current option. Similar earrings here.
