Dressed for: Warm Metallics

Already Pretty outfit featuring olive green sweater, skinny jeans, metallic flats, J.W. Hulme tote

Sweater – LOFT courtesy Twice
Jeans – courtesy Lee
Flats – Hush Puppies (no longer available) – similar
Bag – J.W. Hulme
Earrings – Corset
Bracelets – various sources – similar look

Another unexpected shift in my dressing preferences? Allowing some brassy and bronze-y colors into the fold. I was a strictly silver girl for YEARS, but am finding that some warm gold tones work really well with this more subdued palette.

The bronze flats are a couple of years old and snuck in before I even considered allowing any brass jewelry into my collection, and have been among my most worn and useful shoes. Metallic flats, friends. So much more versatile than you might think!

Insomniac Sale Picks: Non-leather Moto Jackets

*In this late-night feature – which will run on Tuesday and Thursday of each week – I’ll gather up three fun items that are currently on sale online and share them with you! I would LOVE suggestions: Stylish wide-width pumps? Classic v-necked sweaters? Chandelier earrings? Petite dress slacks? What would you like to see featured?*

After our recent leather moto roundup, ballewal requested a few picks for non-leather moto jackets, so here we go:

Actually, first a QUICK TIP: “Moto” won’t always work as a search term. Also try “motorcycle jacket,” “biker jacket,” “asymmetric zip jacket,” and “perfecto jacket.” And probably a few other terms I’m forgetting.

Gap Quilted Moto – was $88, now $57.20
with code THANKS

Posting a bit early tonight since that code expires at midnight! So ballewal said non-leather, but also mentioned that options besides faux leather were welcome, and I think this quilted cotton twill option is so sharp. Love the clean, collarless design and the strategically placed side pockets that nip at the waist. Available in this gray, as well as black or white in sizes 0 – 20, including some petite and tall sizes.Size availability varies by color. If you don’t dig the quilting try this twill moto instead. This jacket is mixed media but features the same collarless shape and comes in 1X – 3X.

NIC+ZOE Knit Moto Jacket – was $148, now $64.99

Another marvelously clean design, this one in a cotton-blend sweater knit that’s bound to be cozy.  jacket is subdued enough to work at the office, but would also look great with a graphic tee and jeans for weekend wear. Or throw it over a dress to add some edge. Available in this heathered rose as well as teal or black in sizes XS – XL. Size availability varies by color. This blue boucle option is gorgeous, too. This sweater-style moto is wool and comes in sizes 1X – 3X.

BLANKNYC Faux Leather Moto – was $148, now $103.60

Although faux leather options abound and many of them are convincingly real-looking, I had a tough time finding a great one on sale. This one still isn’t terribly cheap, but Blank is a great brand and the jacket itself is dead sexy. Available in sizes XS – L. This similar style comes in black or oxblood in sizes 0X – 3X.

Other not-currently-on-sale resources for non-leather moto jackets:

  1. Express – Their (Minus the) Leather collection is fab. Other great options, too, including this collarless knit moto.
  2. Nordstrom – Great selection of moto-styled jackets in knits, wool, and other materials, including plus sizes.
  3. ASOS – Moto doesn’t yield much, but “biker”? Denim, wool, and faux leather.
  4. Piperlime – Limited sizes, but lots of lovely options including this cognac faux leather.

Already Prettypoll: My Power Color

For as long as I can remember, red has been my power color. I shunned all things pink as a little girl in favor of bold, bright, superhero-y red, and I will probably consider it my favorite color forever. Red suits my coloring, but it also makes me FEEL strong and alive to wear it. Black is what I’ll wear if I need to feel cool and powerful, but if I want to feel firey, I reach for red.

Do you have  a power color? Doesn’t have to be something that makes you feel ferocious or aggressive, just a shade or tone that resonates with your centered inner self. What color do you wear when you want to amplify your personality? Has your current one always been your power color, or has it changed over time?
