New Year-Old Style




Welcome to 2017

To illustrate my headline for January, here is my take on New Year-Old Style.

Some styles do return. For example:

  • Bomber jackets

    I like the idea of wearing it with a pleated midi skirt (trending now).  Here are some examples I found.








These are very 80’s. I remember having one. I’m sure many of you will too.

The really cool thing is I found a bomber jacket on sale at Nordstrom Rack for only $16.99. I also have a copper-color midi skirt.

So for me this was a really inexpensive outfit to put together. All you do is add a T-shirt.

This jacket is very light-weight so it could be worn anytime of the year.

You can throw on a necklace or pin a broach on the jacket. I’ve even seen stick-on emblems or even an embroidered look.

Add heels, booties, or even tennis shoes.




I even think wearing black fish-net hose would be awesome.  I see they too are back in style!

And with staying with the fishnet hose, let’s try something unexpected.

Remember this? I posted for a little dressy casual look back in the fall.








How about this? Adding black fishnet hose gives it an edge.



So, go see what combination you can put together!

It is probably not one of my favorite colors but, I could find a way to incorporate it with accessories.

Until next time Happy Shopping!
