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.
Have a great day! Amy
