An easy going-out look with a statement jacket

Over the weekend I was experimenting with outfit ideas using this statement jacket and pieces from my January capsule. I decided to take my own advice, and style these navy pants as I would dark wash jeans.

I think it works here. Because the jacket is such a focal point, I kept everything else pared back and neutral. I’ve really come to appreciate having a few “Show Ponies” in my wardrobe that can zhush up simple separates! (We’re not going out much at the moment, but I’m always flummoxed trying to put together “going-out” looks on short notice. So I’m prepping a few to have in my back pocket.)

Detail: tortoiseshell filigree station necklace.

I truly Shopped My Closet for this look. The Scotch & Soda jacket is a couple of years old (worn previously HERE). I’ve had the pants over a year (worn most recently HERE). The necklace dates back to, I dunno…the last Ice Age? 😆 Seriously though, it’s a Lauren Ralph Lauren costume piece I’ve had for probably 15-20 years. It’s a little tarnished, but I still love it and hang onto it because it goes with everything.
