Okay, so I would be the first to tell you...Forever 21 is probably not a place I do a lot of my shopping. Actually, I do none of my shopping there. But, alas I was attending a planning meeting for a future event at a consignment shop and out of the corner of my eye I spotted this beauty.
Isn't she awesome?? I know you can't see all the detailing but it's fab. The fabric is a "twill-satin" texture. The color combo of cream and gray is so classic and timeless. The elbow-length sleeve makes this piece wearable almost all four seasons.
How I plan to wear this:
Now: Layered with a cami and perhaps capri length leggings and mules.
I would also pair this with wide legged trousers in denim or gray and a chunky sandal...so cute!
Early Fall: Layered with a long sleeve shirt in either gray to blend or perhaps with a pop of color - something like a chartreuse. On the bottom I would do a skinny jean, jegging, or even opaque tights. Depending on the occasion either boots or my favorite Mary Janes.
Winter: Layered with the turtleneck or perhaps a white blouse. Add skinning jeans as my bottom and boots.
Spring: Layered with a longs sleeve blouse in a gorgeous, light color, I am thinking pink or Lavender. Tights and flats or Mary Janes.
I love finding treasures that have endless possibilities, don't you? I also love the fact that at 50-something I can take a piece from a "younger" store and make it fit my style.
Now, it's your turn. Go discover a treasure like I did.
