Classic basics are pieces you can wear over and over again in many ways. My tank top, three-quarter sleeve top and simple crepe pants in either the straight or tapered leg are the pieces I reach for at least a couple of times a week. They can stand alone, but they are the perfect backdrop for any style story I want to tell. Today I am showing you a look that includes another modern classic piece for fall, the biker or moto jacket.
A favorite piece to wear when the air becomes a bit crisper is a moto style jacket. The traditional biker jacket may seem too edgy when offered in black leather with studs, zippers, and pockets, but some variation of the biker or moto style jacket is a modern basic for many women. Whether it is linen, denim or faux leather or suede, it can be a great addition to your classic wardrobe.
This jacket by Clara Sunwoo via My Fair Lady here includes a limited number of subtle gold zipper details and a rich cobalt blue very soft and comfortable knit fabric. I can also wear the jacket open with jeans, a tee, and loafers to create a more casual look. That’s the beauty of basics; they are hard-working pieces can you can wear dressed up or down for any occasion. The coupon code for My Fair Lady in October is Fall18 for 15% off. Valid until October 31, 2018.
I played up the jacket’s gold zippers with a burnished gold and black clutch bag similar here and added a couple of goldtone pieces of jewelry. I rarely wear heels other than out to dinner these days. My suede pumps are a few years old. Similar lower heel pumps are here.
