Sounds like a cocktail, doesn't it? :)
As per Angie's blog post yesterday, I'm trying to get through the long, cold winter by adding interesting layers, wearing a variety of boots and toppers.
Today's outfit started with my ponte knit black jeggings and my hi-lo twist front tank. On top of that, I added my cognac moto jacket as an indoor topper. I like the finish on this jacket - a sort of "dirty, beat-up" look.
To bookend the jacket and wear a different pair of warm boots, I chose my cognac knee high equestrian-ish boots.
I finished off the outfit with rose gold/black watch, gold wedding band, red specs and red lipstick.
I know that the high contrast between the boots and the jeggings is leg shortening but I'm hoping it's negated by the shorter jacket and is not unflattering.
So….over to you…does this work? Are the proportions JFE? Even though the two cognac colours are not a match, do they still bookend successfully? Does this even work as an ensemble? As always, all comments/suggestions welcome.
