stylist notes

The top: Rectangle body types can handle the details going on here, from the lace-embellishments covering the front of the sweater, to the moto jacket that is bringing some serious edge to the look. Those two layers will accentuate your top half which you will use to balance out what you're doing with your bottom half. This is how you create more flattering proportions that go beyond your naturally straight lines. You've got an amazing canvas to work with, so the styling options are endless. Just one more reason it's good to be a Rectangle.

The bottom: These jeans are a beautiful thing. The boot-cut shape going on is one you need to commit to your memory so every time you're out there jean shopping, you know what to look for. Always have something like this on hand in your wardrobe, whether the wash is dark and saturated or medium and a bit distressed. Both options work well for your shape. Keep one jean tailored to flats and the other jean you can hem to fall over your heels.

The rest: Since you have plenty of things going on between the sweater and the jacket, the best approach to jewelry and accessories is a simple one. You don't want to overwhelm things and distract from the good stuff you have coming together here as far as clothing is concerned. We used a classic stud earring, bucket bag, and easy ankle boot to complement the entire ensemble. Super simple, super easy. This is where having a strong core closet comes in handy.

The ONE thing you need to know: The moto jacket is one way to pull the look together, but don't get stuck there. You could throw a camel or black trench over things and you have a more polished take on a weekend look. Opt for a peacoat and you head into 'preppy' territory, or bring a military jacket into the mix for something that fits  a more laid-back weekend vibe. Jackets, and blazers for that matter, are one of the best ways to add major versatility to your wardrobe. Invest when you can, because you will definitely get tons of use out of this top layer.
