Jessica’s Style: Sheer Happiness
I wear a lot of black. I don’t care, I like it, I think it goes with everything, it’s classic, sophisticated and makes me feel cool. If I wear black, I do my best to try and make it my own and put my own stamp on it.
My favourite item in my wardrobe at the moment is a sheer, black button up chiffon blouse. I love that I can wear it during the day, or in the evening dressed up a bit. To wear during the day, team with a matching cotton singlet underneath, worn loose over boyfriend jeans with heels or tailored short shorts with tights and flats. I’ve put together here pretty much exactly how I wear it for a more evening look that I recently wore on a date. Now, when I say evening it’s really all about a polished end result.
With the blouse being long sleeved, team it with some really special underwear, keeping it in the same tone or with a pop of colour like the two shown below keeps it sophisticated. I like to wear my blouse with the buttons all done up with a statement necklace (such as image 1, my Zoe Mou necklace) make-up kept simple, I’m loving my Revlon lip stain (images 1 and 8), tailored trousers from Forever New (4) and my new staple black suede pumps (10.) I usually wear my hair out with lots of curls and waves, but a top knot elongates the look and still looks polished.
