Gone are the days when leather jackets looked cool only with jeans or floral dresses! Now that the rocker and boho-chic trends are all behind us, we can easily say that leather jackets look good even with evening wear or, why not, with a lace skirt and a bandeau top. And who else to illustrate this style better than Gwyneth Paltrow?
The actress is well known for her polished, feminine outfits that she wears both on and off the red carpet – her evening looks are often the most inspired. Take, for example, the ensemble that she wore at a Broadway performance in New York City.
For this occasion, Gwyneth Paltrow went for a sweet lace skirt paired with a simple bandeau top and black, strappy sandals. On top, she added a leather jacket which toughened up the look without making it seem overly feminine. A bright, red lip and the almost invisible makeup completed her effortless ensemble.
So! If you’re thinking about trying this look for a night out, here’s what you need to know:
The Gwyneth Paltrow Style Tip:
When your look is based on mixing clothes with different textures, fabrics and lengths, keep the rest of the ensemble polished and clean. Forgo the jewelry, however simple, and opt for a single touch of dramatic makeup. Whether it’s a powerful colored lip or a dramatic cat eye, that’s up for you to decide. Whatever you do, keep in mind that less is definitely more.
