STYLE GURU STYLE: Love Your Lapel

STYLE GURU STYLE: Love Your Lapel

The lapel is a simple detail on a jacket that enhances the look and gives a classic vibe. Who knew a lapel could transform the shape and entire style of an outfit? It’s the little things in life. Take note of Bouchra Jarrar’s latest spring couture 2016 line. Jarrar’s finely cut trousers and suit jackets are the equivalent of Coco Channel’s tweed blazers: timeless and classy. What I love about this line is her take on the lapel. She has fur lapels, detailed lapels, and even multiple lapels on one jacket. This line made me realize and appreciate its significance.

My take on her couture line included a skort-like bottom with a black crop top, both of made from a silky material. Then I paired that with my favorite jacket that featured a classic lapel. I slid on my comfiest sandals and was ready for the day. I love the shape of my skort; it’s perfectly cut and very unique. By adding a crop top and sandals, I made this a more everyday look appropriate for my age. The lapel on this biker jacket pulled my chest up and shoulders back, improving my posture. Love that!

Get My Look: Black crop top (I love the tie back on this one), fun shorts, black jacket and black sandals. For makeup, I did fresh looking skin and a nude lip to make my thick cat eye the main attraction. I completed the look with soft and fluffy curls!
