Hey, gidday mates! Saturday till Tuesday of this week were spent running around the beautiful streets of Florence shooting with the crazy cool Firenze concept store LuisaViaRoma, and I’m excited to share the first set of images with y’all today — featuring your mate and the lovely Jacey Duprie of Damsel in Dior fame. As you might have noticed, now that I own a black leather moto jacket, it’s always the first thing I reach for whenever I’m looking for something easy to throw on that I know will look instantly cool, so for outfit number one, that’s exactly what I chose.
Leather jackets don’t just elevate a simple jeans-and-tee outfit, they also inject skinny dress pants and a tucked-in button down with a luxury rock’n’roll edge. This one is by DSquared2 and it’s a killer option. No matter the scenario (weddings and courtrooms aside), a black leather moto jacket is probably the right answer, and I say this as someone who went almost their entire life without one, and now has worn almost nothing but for the past six months.
As you’ll see here, Jacey is wearing an incredible floral print Valentino dress with beige pumps, and the leather jacket meshes effortlessly. The same would be true if she was wearing cut off denim shorts and a crop top or a blazer with black jeans and ankle boots. The options are literally endless, and it always works. Keep in mind that leather will stretch and fit precisely to your frame, so I would always size down one size smaller than you usually wear to get that perfect fit.
Allow me to take a minute to thank the guys at LuisaViaRoma for the amazing week, plus the team at Details Magazine for organizing everything, plus all my new friends I met while I was over here. Literally favourite blogging trip of my life. #firenze4ever!!!
