This little black and white outfit is what I wore on Friday night going out for a dinner at our favorite french bistro. This style is a bit unusual for me in two ways: I rarely go for an all black and white outfit (I adore color!) and I rarely go for a “boyish” silhouette (I live in the believe that I’m too curvy for that…). But how fun would it be to never challenge yourself to break your own fashion rules? Right, so I decided to wear this outfit despite the lack of color – I said to myself that the zebra print overload would make up for it!
This zebra jacket is a vintage treasure that has been living in the back of my closet for the last three years. The number of times I’ve used it can be counted on one hand… It is a bit challenging to wear zebra print because it’s just so over the top, so I decided to go for a simple 60′s rock and roll chic look this time and I think it worked. I didn’t feel the print taking over too much and I quite liked the “boyish” silhouette on me. Wearing low rise jeans with a tucked in shirt actually felt like a fresh change to my usual high waisted jeans.
Now how do you like the outfit? Is zebra print something you’d ever wear?
