Classics are timeless pieces that work with all our essentials (the basics). The basics are the workhorses that make all the show ponies and statement pieces in your collection work. Things like a white T and pair of black pants are considered basics. You need them to build a look, but alone, they can be a tad boring. Today I am showing you a piece that is a variation on the classic jean jacket.
The beautiful Enamel Red jacket I wore to enjoy the Thanksgiving festivities with my family, is from Chico’s here. A jean jacket is a classic you can wear year round and in many ways but the typical washed out blue denim may not be the best color to wear near your face. I love the length, the side pockets and the rich red color of this jacket. It can be dressed up or down and layers can be added over or under it. The breast pockets are the correct size. If they were too small, it would make the bust look larger.
The jeans are basics by Liverpool Jeans Co here. The crossbody bag and boots are classic pieces from Ralph Lauren. The bag is here. The short boots are here. The white T is a basic piece from Khol’s a few years ago. Similar here. (I wear these crew neck tees only when it is cold. They are much warmer than the more flattering scoop neck.) Another way to look at the classics vs. basics analogy is that you may keep a classic for several years, but a basic might be replaced every year because you wear it so often.
Thank you so much for shopping with me at my Beautycounter site this month. If you have ever thought about starting your own beauty business, I would be thrilled to work with you. Contact me from the link here. Many of you asked to see the back of my hair after I cut two inches off the last layer in back. This length might be my sweet spot.
I hope you had a peaceful, happy Thanksgiving holiday or weekend if you live outside the USA.
