High on my list of essentials is a shearling jacket. I’m always on the lookout for a vintage one, but so far the ones I have come across have been too bulky. So unless I’m willing to spend an arm and a leg, or go the faux shearling path, (this one from Topshop is a dream!), the way to go is consignment. And I spotted this luxe version by Mugler at my regular haunt, Closet 1951. And while it’s still the chilly part of spring, I think this is the perfect cozy and chic cove-up. I tempered the 70s vibe with a classic tapered trouser and this wool turtleneck in neutral tones. I really like how the slouchy jacket (it’s a size too big, but I like it a bit oversized) contrasts with the proper trouser and and prim turtleneck.
For a pop of color that still coordinates with the rest of the look, I chose a color block Celine luggage tote, (talk about an investment piece!) The color blocking echoes the slingback bootie with its contrasting trim and red insole nicely.
For jewelry, I chose a pendant daisy necklace by Trifari in Bakelite, usually the Bakelite jewelry you find is from the 30s and 40s, but this flower power necklace is from the 60s or 70s (it’s very reminiscent of the Lucite Lanvin geometric pendants from the same era). I added a pair of milky white earrings by YSL from the 80s. The opaque glass and the high cabochon design really make them stand out.
