Outfit Of The Yesterday: Valentine’s Day Date Night Look #2: Oasis Cleanline Leather Blazer (+ A Happy Yellow Skirt, Too)

♫: The Dandy Warhols’ TV Theme Song - Dandy Warhols

I was intrigued when I saw the ASOS Pencil Skirt in Rose Jacquard pop up over on ASOS a few weeks ago. Its happy yellow color is perfect for spring, but the longer cut and slightly triangular shape of the skirt is fairly different from anything else that I currently have in my closet.

I took the risk, though, and I was pleasantly surprised when the skirt arrived.  A slit up the middle keeps it from looking dowdy, and the higher rise & waist makes it fairly elongating in spite of my vertically-challenged stature.  It does lose a few points for not having pockets (I’m so used to having pockets on the dresses and skirts that I wear that when I don’t, I just sit and creepishly awkwardly jam my hands into my hips over and over again out of bad habit like a spaz), and also for the fabric being a little on the thin side (Spanx helps smooths lumps & bumps). But all in all it’s a keeper, and I hope they produce similar skirts in other prints and patterns,, too.

I decided to keep my outfit a bit more casual, and so I topped it off with the Oasis Cleanline Leather Blazer. I only have a few leather coats, and all are in black–so I had been digging around for a cognac-hued coat to wear during the late-winter/early-spring months. This jacket has pleats down the front, including some pleats layered around the zipper and bust, which helps give the jacket a more fitted & feminine shape. The sleeves are a little long, which is something that I’m unfortunately used to with most tops, but the jacket is nicely lined and so cuffing the sleeves up provides a simple and easy fix. Love!

    Firstly, bright blue looks amazing with your skin and hair! And your eyes too! But I’m really loving the jacket. It’s such a great basic that really elevates an outfit!

      Thanks so much Noelle! I’ve definitely been trying to add more bright blue to my wardrobe–it’s perhaps one of the only colors I seriously lack in my closet. :|

    I really love the mix of colors here and agree with you that the longer length & angular hem looks so modern & fresh for spring. Wondering how it would look on us tall girls…heading to check it out now! :)

      I think the skirt shape would look awesome on taller girls! The only issue is that the front slit does go up a little high (but then again, I have the skirt yanked up almost to my boobs since I’m so short, hahaha. I think anyone else of a normal stature could wear it much, much lower on the waist!).

    Chloe, great outfit! What size jacket are you wearing?

    • http://thechloeconspiracy.com/ The (Chloe) Conspiracy

      Hi Mimi! I’m wearing a size US xx-small (UK x-small), and it fits nicely (with room underneath to still layer up a bit). Hope I’ve helped!

      • Mimi Korg

        Very helpful Chloe! We are the same size. Thx!
