There are many things I appreciate in life, but one of those is the way your look can address your mood or send a message. It certainly can be a way of expression if you allow it to do so. As far as basics go, a pair of jeans, sweater, coat, and some chucks can come across slightly boring. Is that what you want to say to the world?! “I’m boring, not to mention cozy!” One way to fix that is by pairing unique, unlikely hues, prints, and a bold swipe of lipstick. Now that’s how I make basics take a bold turn.
I know what you’re thinking… “What’s with the jacket over the shoulder deal?!” There are probably so many other questions running through your mind and you might be questioning me altogether. Well, it is definitely a look more popular among the fashion community as opposed to those who just need to throw on a jacket on for layering. Ok, so the simple answer all comes down to one person. Mr. Ken Downing, the one and only fashion director of Neiman Marcus (doesn’t get much bigger than that). He has been known to say: “A lady never wears her arms through the sleeves of her jacket, especially in the evening…” So there you have it, if the Mr. Ken Downing strongly suggests to refuse the sleeve. You. DO. IT! ’nuff said.
