My friend Carletta shared this very jacket on Twitter the other week, annoyed that the only real leather jacket ASOS offered in plus sizes was covered in embroidered flowers. I didn't realize when I bought this jacket back in March that it was the only plus size leather offering, I was just in awe of all of the embellishment. Because there's two Allies, one who likes tasteful and stylish, and the other who feels more is more. And this outfit is more.
Jacket: ASOS (14) | Top: c/o cabi (XL) | Jeans: Slim Boyfriend c/o cabi (14, I cut them off at the bottom) | Belt: Stud Belt c/o cabi (XL) | Shoes: ASOS | Bag: ALLSAINTS | Earrings: Jenny Bird | Lipstick: L'Oreal Riche Matte in Eva's Red
This jacket is nice and heavy and warm. It runs boxy, I've spent a few months balling it up and shoving it in the bottom of closets to try to break it in. But it's real embroidery, real leather, and a real statement maker. The boots are also from ASOS and come in wide widths. They're surprisingly comfortable and the patent leather makes them a great choice when it's drizzling.
The earrings are from Jenny Bird. I have the smaller Edie hoops in gold and wear them all the time. When I saw the larger ones I fell in love and decided this time to go with silver. Talk about a statement maker! I often wear them with a simple monochrome outfit with the earrings be the only accent.
The rest of the outfit is cabi. The jeans you saw before in this outfit post. I really like the look of the shorter cut-off jeans with a slim ankle boot that goes up under the hem. It's also pretty practical in the colder months! The top is from cabi's New Arrivals collection, Regent Regal. It's velvet-burn-out and tunic length. It's easy to wear with a pair of leather leggings and ankle boots, wear under a black blazer with jeans, style with a shorter jacket (the In the Band Jacket also from cabi would be cute) or tuck in like I have here. The belt is also this season from cabi, I love the black crystal studs on it. Stay tuned, I'll be having more cabi, and more from the Regent Regal collection on the blog in the near future.
