Fashion Over Fifty: The Black Leather Jacket

Hello!  Welcome to another Fashion Over Fifty Post.  First, a disclaimer for all the animal rights activists out there:  this is not a real leather jacket....just a look-a-like.  

When I was in Chicago visiting my daughter a few weeks ago, we spotted these black moto jackets on clearance at Forever 21 for only $15.00 so we each bought one.   Now, even though I've been seeing these jackets everywhere, and I really wanted one, I decided earlier in the season NOT to buy one because I had just purchased a brown FAKE leather jacket and I didn't feel I needed two leather jackets.  However, when I saw one for only $15.00, how could I resist?

So how does someone over fifty wear such a hip, trendy jacket?  Easy,  wear it as if it were a conservative blazer!  I paired my jacket with a navy blue pencil skirt from J.C. Penney that has some black leather trimming on it.   I wore a shimmery black tank underneath the jacket so I wouldn't be too warm or add too much bulk.

 I found my black snake skin purse on clearance at J.C.Penney.

 To take the 'edge' off the outfit, I softened it a bit with some glamorous, feminine jewelry.

 Booties are all the rage this season, and although I've been wearing them for several years now with pants, this is the first time I've ever worn them with a dress.  I'm not sure if I like booties worn with dresses, they seem to shorten your legs, which I don't like.  But I felt they worked fairly well with this trendier outfit.

 And here is a picture of my twenty- something daughter wearing the same jacket.  She paired her jacket with a bold printed dress, leggings, and ballet flats.

Have a great day! Amy
