Take a cue from Keys and look for leather pieces that are in universally flattering, classic shapes as they tend to give off a grown-up radiance rather than a less than cliche sense of sex appeal.
Stylist Tip: Notice that Alicia’s skirt has just a leather panel mixed with fabric- a far easier and more flattering way to wear leather when you are curvy.
Polished pumps, a chic Amrapali collar necklace and cuff, plus sleek brushed back hair added a sense of put-together composure to Key’s look that’s certain to turn heads the time you consider it for yourself.
