It’s no secret that I am a sucker for all things sixties & seventies so when this seriously seventies faux leather jacket stepped into my life, I truly fell in love! I feel like a super seventies babe when I wear it; it transforms literally any look; the perfect piece to use in all my dream style formulas.
As a stylist, I truly believe in fashion formulas when it comes to dressing. My mind is full of them, my strictest, and the one i’ve discussed the most is my “2 parts masculine for every 1 part feminine” which is pretty self explanatory; for every feminine piece you wear, throw on 2 masculine pieces to get the balance just right.
And with nostalgic, retro pieces my formulas are never far from my mind each morning. This time for every retro piece that graces my body I like to contrast it with one modern and contemporary piece. So, for example with this look, the seventies jacket of dreams, was combined with a novelty knit (super modern) which then allowed me to add a parallel jean (retro) and a black buckle boot by Carvella (modern) and there we have it, all topped off with the epitome or retro meets modern with these epic reflective sunglasses by Le Specs.
It’s all in the formulas!
