I have never been a fan of real or faux leather moto jackets on me. I love the cool vibe on other people but the shine accentuates the lack of smoothness on my face and the style just seems too hard for me. I’m more the suede, drapey type. So imagine my surprise to discover a jacket that proves me wrong.
This is faux leather with the softest, buttery texture I’ve ever felt. I just can’t keep my hands off it! It also comes in a spruce type Jasper green and black, but this natural cream is irresistible. I’m a huge fan of the slimming effect you get from asymmetrical seaming, so this jacket tics that box too.
I love it combined with this lightweight turtleneck. Chico’s shows the neck neatly folded over in half but I prefer mine scrunched. It’s a cotton blend with CoolMax technology so it will keep you warm without overheating. The turtleneck comes in several of my favorite neutrals but I opted for this camel. I’m not sure what it is about camel, but it feels so elegant to me.
This color is not too warm so it will coordinate with lots of other colors. In fact, it’s perfect with my Cheetah loafers. I have worn these shoes more times than I can count and love that I can just refresh them with a quick run through the washing machine. You can get $20 off your very first pair of Rothy’s with the code here.
I skipped earrings and simply added this bronze-toned charm necklace. It has an extender which allowed me to make it long enough to wear over the sweater.
I’ve never been a fan of clothes that require a lot of fussy care so this faux leather really appeals to me.
What have you discovered you could wear that you never thought you would?
