Twist your classics with a zipper

In fashion over 40, it is like this Oscar Wilde quote

Be yourself – everyone else is already taken

Tweet this. For me this means classic (denim skirt, striped T-shirt, patent leather pumps, statement bag) with a twist (zipper detail on the shoulders, mixing green and blue, orange statement bag). What about you?

This outfit is a skirt version of Casual Friday. The pumps keep the look office appropriate in a casual work environment. Since it was a rainy day I added my trench coat. The orange bag adds a pop of color on a rainy gray day.

You can find another example how I styled this striped top in the post at the link. How do you tweak your classics to stay interesting? Do you like zippers?
