I love how certain articles of clothing, like this super chic, double-breasted, off-white jacket from The Limited, can be so incredibly versatile. On the last post, we explored two business looks with this same jacket: A black and white classic staple and another one with some tropical flair.
Today, we will explore another classic and casual staple and, a final more risqué look for a night out on the town.
This was by far my favorite part of this shoot. This look is fun, edgy, sexy and polished. Denim and ivory is an incredibly versatile combination that looks good with pretty much any other color you feel like throwing in. I chose a more conservative look, keeping the shoes in metallic blue tones to blend in with the denim, and I added some spunk with the floral sunnies. Thin/petite girls everywhere: This may shock you but Hollister actually has THE BEST fitting jeans for an unbeatable price. I got these on sale for twenty-five dollars! (Normally fifty dollars). Another little secret…These are actually jeggings. Yes, I felt like a teenager shopping for jeggings at Hollister, but the result was incredible: Soft, light, flattering “jeans” that adapt to my petite frame. Thanks to my eighteen year-old sister for the tip. She saw me wearing some old jeans not too long ago and said, “Please don’t ever wear that again.” Ouch. Another pro about jeggings? It’s hot as hell in Miami and having a pair of these to thrown on instead of actual denim can be a lifesaver come August.
This look is for a night out (OBVI). I’m that girl in the group that is ALWAYS COLD. Always. This off-white jacket is a more grown-up and polished alternative to a denim or leather jacket. The stockings dress up the shorts as well and they save you from walking around with your cheeks hanging out. Ankle booties are perfect as they allow your legs to look loooong, plus knee-high boots are a little too much (in my humble opinion). Some nice, patent leather pointy pumps would also do a nice job with this outfit. Fun fact: I got this super cute clutch with a set of lip glosses I bought from Tarte!
So, there you have it ladies. One jacket, four completely different looks with items I already had in my closet (except the jeans). Next time you say you have nothing to wear, get your thinking cap on and think outside of the box. Fun combinations exist within the realm that is your closet; we just have to have a little fun, be adventurous and step out of our comfort zone.
