Cool and Chic

leather jacket over 50

You had to see this one coming, right?

How could I possibly not match the shoulder-duster statement earrings, my old leather jacket and the ‘dress-of-the-moment’?

Come on, this is a match made in sartorial heaven! This looks seriously cool, even if I say so myself.

And more importantly, this is what I want to look like, at this stage of my life. Yes, this outfit epitomizes everything I want from my clothes now, and how I would like my style to evolve in the future.

Because personal style is not static but evolves over time. It is influenced by trends and fashions, for sure, but even more by how you evolve and grow as a person. It reflects not only your changing body but also your changing values, priorities, and aesthetic preferences.

And in my case my style seems to have come full circle, in a way. I’m back where I was as a teenager, only more sophisticated and chic. Yes, once a rock chick, always a rock chick…

    To thine own self be true. Be authentically you — and that's a rock chick.

      Yes, every once in a while Shakespeare got it right…

    Yes, you do look seriously cool in your maxi, leather jacket and earrings. I truly believe it takes time to find your own style and that is why confident older women always look so darn good.

      Thanks, Jill. That's true, it does take time, and our preferences change, too.

    I not only love the style of this dress, but adore the colour. And a leather jacket is on the top of my wish list – love yours Tiina. x

    I love the leather jacket paired with the long floral dress, and those earrings are fabulous! I've yet to wear my leather jacket with a maxi dress – with the cooler weather on the way now's the time to try it! Thanks for linking up and I hope you're feeling better.Emma

      Thanks, Emma. A leather jacket with a maxi is one of my favourite looks at the moment, and perfect for early autumn.
