This jacket is the only item of clothing I own with the word “boyfriend” in the name. I’ve tried boyfriend jeans, boyfriend sweaters, and several versions of boyfriend jackets but nothing worked until I tried this ruched sleeve version from MICHAEL Michael Kors. This little jacket is really brilliant: flattering, easy to style (and currently on sale). It’s available in Misses, Petites and Plus sizes. (You lucky Misses also have the option of Navy.)
Never underestimate the power of accessories. The clothes in this outfit are all simple, neutral and versatile pieces. A bit nondescript on their own, actually. The accessories are doing all the heavy lifting. 🙂
Are you a member of the Sisterhood Of Bright Shoes? I’m its newest acolyte. It’s amazing the punch they add to a neutral outfit. These suede pumps from Diane bon Furstenberg have a nice low-ish heel and are quite comfortable. They’re also on sale now at Shopbop (plus an extra 20% off with code EXTRAOFF20 until midnight tonight) so run don’t walk!
I’ve been drooling over this Saint Laurent Small “Sac de Jour” bag online for some time now. My contract with myself that if I want a new bag, I must send two off for consignment. Once I saw this bag in person, it was no contest. Not only is the design elegant and classic, but it’s an extremely functional tote for weekday use. I love that it’s not HUGE so I don’t feel as though I’m toting a piece of luggage. There’s a center zippered compartment, a zippered pocket and two open pockets.
Do you have favorite accessories that really dial up the style for your simple outfits?
