Yesterday I paired up Lizz Basinger’s Solo Pleat Tunic Dress with a scarf and boots. Today you may recognize the layers I added to another Sassafras purchase I wrote about earlier in the week: a faux fur vest and my motorcycle jacket.
For the vest, I removed the scarf and added a couple of necklaces. I’ll write about those later–one of those necklaces is particularly special. The reason I left out the scarf is that I wanted to show how this vest changes the shape of Lizz’s dress.
If I leave the vest unzipped, you can see the pleat easily and it gives a long visual line from my neck to my knees.
Long visual lines are always a welcome feature for petites.
At the risk of breaking up that lovely long line, I actually prefer the vest zipped. Even though Lizz’s tunic dress already has shape built into it, that gets covered up when I put something over the dress. Zipping the vest adds shape back in and makes the outfit feel more put-together.
I didn’t mention this yesterday but take a look at the three-quarter sleeves on this dress. Lizz shows them rolled up on her website and Amy from Sassafras mentioned that’s how she wears her Solo Pleat Tunic Dress as well. I go back and forth–sometimes rolled up, sometimes long, like in the photo below. Since this outfit has long sleeves poking out from underneath, I felt the unrolled gave a cleaner look.
And now for the jacket:
Notice I put the scarf back on and switched back to the Khombu snow boots I featured yesterday. This is definitely a style fit for a cold Seattle day.
A side profile gives a peek at the shirttail hem of the dress. That hem may get its start in men’s tailored fashion, but I find it playful and unique.
Let’s head into the weekend with another favorite find from Sassafras: cozy flannel by Candace Jermaigne. Who doesn’t love cozy flannel in the middle of winter? Candace takes it to the next level with all kinds of great details. Come on back tomorrow!
