When it comes to my wardrobe, I usually end up wearing different versions of the same outfit all the time! But even though I usually keep it simple, I love punching up a basic look with a killer statement piece, like this boldly colored leather jacket. It’s cerulean. Remember that phrase from this scene in The Devil Wears Prada? If you haven’t seen the movie, Meryl Streep schools a clueless Anne Hathaway on the history of cerulean blue and how trends are made. There was a lot of dry humor in it and I always think of this scene and have a chuckle every time I wear this jacket! 😆
Believe it or not, this jacket is an old find from the Victoria’s Secret catalog! I got it back when they sold clothes and when I also used to be the brands PR director ( my former life before design!) It wasn’t terribly expensive but it’s buttery soft, surprisingly high quality and I’m obsessed with the color! I wore this look for a coffee date with a friend and threw on this jacket with simple black jeans and a white button down shirt. Adding in a bright piece like this is such an easy way to make a basic outfit look ridiculously stylish! Do you have a favorite statement piece that you love to wear?
