Turning Heads #Linkup- Adding a Statement Jacket, Fringe Shoes to All White Look


Hello Ladies and Gents

Glad you are here for #turnngheadstuesday. I seem to be obsessing over white lately. You all know I Love Color but can also be captured by white with a neutral palette.*Absolutely! I love a nice clean white look, bright and modern, that look where the white stays white and there is no sign of dripped coffee on your clothes, or it has faded to a “winter white.” So, I must take advantage of my new white items before I  eat, drink, or lay in the grass for that next summer concert. 🙂 

Anyhow, I see plenty of bloggers wearing whites and I favor this look right into summer. This top I bought on Poshmark, with tag still on , was a mere $10! With the ruffles  a Spring 16 trend, , I wanted to put together today’s look. The ruffles are what take a plain white button down to the next level, and you know I love texture and detail of this nature. The white ankle skinny jeans are from Ann Taylor, and the sandals ( yes, I own them in black) a fun, fringed find from Payless last year. This look would be lovely on its own, with statement jewelry and my LV Speedy adding additional visual interest, but I love the look of an all white outfit with a statement leather jacket. Here I am wearing my brown leather jacket I bought many moons ago. It has a bit of ruggedness in it’s style that plays against the feminine ruffles.I have more leather/faux leather jackets in my wardrobe due to the weather here in Charlotte, and also because they can easily transform a look.

You may see a similar look with a pastel leather jacket in the future.

Do you find many different ways to style a leather jacket?

Outfit details: Leather Jacket ( years ago! Speigel), Loft Blouse( poshmark new), White skinny jeans ( Ann Taylor), Fringe sandals ( Payless!), Earrings: Charming Charlie, and Louis Vuitton Speedy.

    This is such a clever move to pair white jeans with a battered leather jacket. I says all the right things – I’m cool, stylish and don’t have to try too hard. I love it!

    It’s tickled me that this week I’ve linked an outfit with 3 bold bright colours and you’ve gone white and neutral! But, as they say opposites attract. The leather jacket is a great addition to the white and I love that it’s brown – slightly rough but not as stark as white and black can sometimes be. And the sandals are lovely with the fringing.

    I have to admit, that I rarely do all neutrals like this, but I could totally see me wearing this! I think you’ve made it so interesting with the shoes (of course, since I am a shoe girl) and the necklace!
    What great inspiration Jess.
    Thanks for always hosting
    ps…I wasn’t sure if you saw, but I mentioned you in my post yesterday about shoes—I know you can’t wear heels, yet that doesn’t stop you from having a stylish shoe collection!

    I do love the crispness of an all white outfit as well. And your ruffle top adds that perfect bit of texture to keep it interesting. Your jacket is fabulous! And the necklace…swoon! I only have an ivory faux leather moto jacket that is a little tight in the shoulders so I don’t wear it often. I need to acquire a collection of better fitting leather (or faux leather) jackets, for sure. I may start thrifting for those! Thanks for the inspiration!

    Gorgeous, Jess. I love pairing white with camel and beige tones. I wear a lot of leather and faux leather in various combinations. And I have a pair of sandals with fringes in the basement… need to see if I can still wear them – really love yours!

    As you know I often wear a lot of colour, Jess – but I too love neutrals with white, especially at this time of year! Love your layering here, and those tassel sandals are the bomb (must get me some like that for the summer). And we have the same leaf earrings!! They look beautiful on you :))

    Thank you for hosting my lovely, wishing you a good week!

    Lovely neutral look, Jess! I always find white a bit tricky to wear, being pale. And then there’s the stain issue, of course. It’s as if white clothes attract stains somehow, or maybe They just make me suddenly clumsy…

    The brown and white are lovely together! I’m much too clumsy to wear a lot of white, but I do have a few white pieces. It’s rare for me not to stain them at some point during the day though, wearing two white pieces would be too much for me to manage, haha!

    Thank you for the link up!
