Do you have suede jacket know how?
A suede jacket is an investment piece. (because if it's not, you really don't want it.) The quality is important and it'll last for years. It'll never go out of style and you'll always look fabulous. (Also they now make a vegan version of suede so no one gets left out.)
In this look, I'm showing you items you can use to build a statement around this trend. The suede jacket I'm modeling is no longer available (fabulous goes quick!) so I've found others in differing price ranges and styles. Besides and this is true for all the things I share, you don't really want to copy anyone exactly. Nope! Take the style and run with it, Babe. Make it your own. (You knew that, of course, but some of you are a wee bit literal and get frustrated if you can't find the exact thing. but stop it. There's no crying in fashion!)
Each jacket we wear adds a piece to our overall presence and how we wear it helps to tell our story. Whether it's a white jacket or a floral jacket, they are part of our persona. Our statement to the world and who we are and how we fit into the puzzle of this human existence. It's part of the internal mapping people use to remember us and make sense of us. (Being unforgettable is very kind. It makes it EASY for people to remember you.)
I've double-belted this outfit. These are NYDJ jeans for older women and they have a higher rise to prevent rear cracking and muffin top. The double belt is a trick to help them appear more Low Rider without risking muffin top spillover. (You're welcome). The first belt is worn the standard way - fed through the loops. It helps hold your pants up. The second belt is outside of the belt loops but under the untucked shirt in back. This one is a wide belt but you can make a couple of thin ones work. Play with it until you get it right. (Send me a snap when you get it rocking!)
I've also picked up the turquoise in the plaid shirt and pulled in some jewelry that plays off it.
The boots are a pebble-grain truffle leather but these suede boots are even better.
If the suede or vegan suede jackets still aren't for you, you can rock the look with a fabric version.
A small selection from Amazon. (I try to get all price ranges and lengths for you.)
