It is yet another bitterly cold day here and I wanted to wear something warm and edgy. I have only worn the Spiegel "lemming" leather jacket as outer wear so far and decided today to wear it as a blazer. That was the starting point for today's outfit.
Underneath the leather jacket, I have on a simple black knit tank. I know it seems silly to wear a sleeveless item underneath, especially when it's so cold but believe me, when the menopausal hot flush hits, off comes the jacket and a sleeveless tank is exactly the right choice!
For my bottoms, I went with my Blackwatch plaid trousers - one of my favourite purchases for F/W 2013.
I went with my Doc Marcies for footwear and my black Danier handbag. No jewelry other than my silver wedding band and a silver ring on my other hand. And yeah…and red lipstick of course!
This might be too much black and too much black leather for some, but it feels right to me for today.What do you think? does it all work together? As always, all comments/suggestions welcome.
Trousers: Lord & Taylor
