ponte

American Eagle Outfitters knit motorcycle jacket (old); Helmut Lang printed soft shroud sleeveless top (old); 7 For All Mankind ‘Gwenevere Super Skinny’ ponte pants (old); Steven by Steve Madden ‘Slater’ bootie in black leather; BCBG ring (old) & studded clutch (old); Black leather cuff (old); Cartier tank watch.

I channeled my inner Joey Ramone last night for dinner. I’ve been a motorcycle jacket lover for as long as I can remember and this cotton knit version (it feels like your favorite sweatshirt hoodie) keeps my obsession alive.

I also wore ponte pants. You need to have a pair, it’s the bridge between leggings and skinny jeans. All the comfort of leggings, but with the structure of skinny jeans (ponte fabric is thicker, smooths out the lumpy and holds it all in). My pair looks like a regular pair of jeans with a button & fly closure, belt loops and actual front & back pockets. I find that this style stays put better than the traditional pull-on leggings. Plus, you can always add a skinny belt as insurance.

My pair is no longer available, but these look like a great option: Joe Fresh and LC Lauren Conrad.
