Sadly this is a style and color palette that is rarely found in the plus size lines that cater to classic looks or bold super-trendy club wear. We have had trouble finding that in between look of modern, pulled-together scruff a.k.a the celebrity-expensive hobo. Then, on a clearance rack at Macy's, I found the perfect start!! A Michael Kors scuffed leather motocycle jacket in a Diesel-ish color - someplace between brown and dark grey. Finally! Also, it was awesome that it was on sale from $500 to $145! I then played around until I found the formula for the perfect laid-back-but-posh urban edge look. I took it for a spin at one of the hottest brunch spots below 14th street and people LOVED it!! Check it out:
LEATHER MOTORCYCLE JACKET +
(aim for a dark color that is not jet black)
DISTRESSED DARK WASH JEANS +
"ROCKSTAR" ACCESSORIES +
(bold cuff w/ hardware, shades, statement ring)
(also in the muted color palate/"greige")
BIG STATEMENT BAG +
(rent a real designer hobo bag for best impact!)
POP-OF-COLOR/PATTERN SCARF =
"DISTRESSED DOWNTOWN CHIC!"
