Bright Suiting

The Staple: Cropped Orange Jacket
I love all the colorful suits celebrities have been rocking on the carpet this past year. But I’ve never had the courage to actually spend the money on one. Luckily, my new jacket just happened to perfectly match my flame pants from J. Crew. Aren’t fashion coincidences the best? I used blushes and rose gold to soften the bright pants suit. If you’re on the shorter side, like me, this cropped version of a jacket is a great way to try the menswear trend.

Audrey jacket (similar), Karen Millen top, Rhea Bangles and Copper Cupchain Bracelet c/o Stella & Dot, Sugar and Sequins earrings, Ted Baker clutch, J. Crew pants, BCBG sandals

    This outfit is a major wow! I wouldnt have thought that you can wear so much orange. But you look incredible! I think I will try an orange jacket at least.

  2. I really love that you are showing the bright bold suits that are everywhere this spring, and then having the contrast of the printed bag, and the creamy white earring really pop with this look. This shows that you can wear trends even if you don’t think you can pull them off, and they can look great. Great post!

    I love this look! I am always impressed when someone can pull off orange so well. With my fair skin I have a really hard time finding an orange that works for me, so I always admire when others can do it with such style!
