Not looking to buy anything, I was immediately drawn to this statement piece, while shopping with girlfriends at JorJet Boutique. Black and white leopard jacquard, faux leather trim, subtle zipper details, a perfect fit – it was love at first sight!

For size reference, I took a 36. I’d say the 38 fits more like a size 6.
And then the fun begin. My norm being a solid black piece, I immediately began to think of all the ways I could wear this statement piece – with pieces in my closet.
To show how versatile a fun statement jacket can be, I worked up a couple of flat-lays (Instagram lingo), here on my bathroom floor.
All pieces in this set are from my closet, and are linked in the slide show below. If the exact piece was not available, I found the most similar.
Boyfriend jeans and black silk tank
Swap out the black tank for a ribbed white cotton tank, for a more casual look.
Dress this look down even more with lace-up ballet flats.
Swap out the casual boyfriend jeans, for a dark flare jean,
a dressier look!
Add a jumpsuit
A black leather midi skirt (any black skirt would work), white ribbed tank,
and a pop of color in the clutch – can take you from work to after 5!
After putting these 5 outfits together, I realized I am in need of a silver tone, long lariat necklace. I did add one, to Shop the Look, below.

Which is your favorite look, of the 5 above?

Before I go, I had a chance to wear my Caslon/James Perse knock-off this week (HERE), with wide leg jeans,
and lace-up Paul Green Sandals (reviewed HERE)
Wishing you all a fabulous weekend!

Fabulous jacket! I see why you had to get it! 🙂 And I love the 5 outfits! I know you’ll get a lot of use out of it and will have fun with it!
enjoy the rest of your weekend!
My favorite look is the black jumpsuit. I like the red clutch with everything. That jaCket would jump off the rack for me too but my practical side might get in the way of buying it! Now that i can see 5 ways to wear it , i would not think twice. How about wearing it With red something? Or another cOlor? It is getting to be a neutral almost since the colors are neutral ones. I like it !
I love the jacket. Great styling inspiration –Hanna Lei
