Wearing jeans with a white button-down shirt, leopard print pumps, red blazer and pearls is a timeless classic casual Friday work outfit. An easy update of this look with the Sarah Palin red blazer is to choose cuffed boyfriend jeans and a chambray shirt and multiple pearl necklaces as shown in the photo above.
Another all time classic favorite of mine is the knotted silk head scarf. When I was a kid I saw a photo of Sophia Loren wearing a silk scarf with a winter coat in one of my granny’s magazines. That photo inspired me to copy
the look using my moms silk scarf. She forbid me to don the look. She didn’t mind at all that I had used her silk scarf. The look was just too uncommon for Germans.
I still love this classic look. There is such a nice tension between the heavy wool of the peacoat and the softness of a printed silk scarf. The colors of the scarf pick up the black of the shoes and gloves, the brown of the bag and shoes, the gold and red of the coat. The scarf ties this outerwear outfit together.
