Bare (See Jane Wear)

Zara peplum leather jacket (old but similar), Duffy sweater (spring version here), Zara skirt (old maxi rolled up, but similar), J Crew pumps, KW sunglasses
Two words:  bare legs.  Also, a leather jacket is a wonderful contrast to the feminine, mid-lenth skirt.  Pairing leather with overly short skirts can often look too "biker babe," so sweetening it up with long skirts or pointy heels is a great juxtaposition.



Also, I'm taking part in Vanity Fair's "Best Dressed" Challenge.  I'd love it if you showed your support and voted for my looks by clicking here!
