Saturday was a beautiful fall day, so we took a short drive up to Abingdon, Virginia, to shop, go for a walk and enjoy a light dinner at Figaredos. We appreciate this place because the small servings of food are all excellent, and the service is top-notch. It offers a unique menu with classic Spanish tapas, brick oven pizza, and selected wines. We always sit in the comfortable club chairs by the window and watch people while we unwind after spending the afternoon exploring, shopping, and looking at all the beautiful old buildings.
This combination of a short Clara Sunwoo biker jacket and full-length slim fit Sheri style jeans by NYDJ is a good look for me because it visually breaks my body into thirds. The top is one-third of my body, and the lower part appears as two-thirds of my body, which makes me look more tall and slender.
Architecture is always more pleasing to the eye with structural balance, harmonious elements, and proper proportion. The human body also appears more attractive in specific combinations of styles and accessories over other options. When I wear a longer top, it cuts my body in half visually, making me look shorter and broader, so it can be tricky to get this combination to work on my 5′ 6″ frame. If you are tall and slim, you can wear those longer tops and jackets with great success with long legs.
The biker style jacket is from ShopMyFairLady.com. The jeans are from NYDJ. The tank top was from Chico’s a few years ago. The Calvin Klein bag was purchased at T.J.Maxx about four years ago. The shoes were by Marc Fisher last year. The large face watch is by Michael Kors.
