Grammy Award-Winning musician and singer Esperanza Spalding looked lovely at her album signing on March 23 at the J&R Music World in New York City. She is currently promoting her new album “Radio Music Society.”
Esperanza rocked an edgy, yet, casual look, pairing a striped, cropped T-shirt with distressed denim and a leather vest. Her high waisted jeans, with their short hem, made for a retro feel.
I really like that her boots and vest have so much charachter. They are worn-in and seem to have a story to tell about the places she has taken them.
Seeking out pieces that have this type of personal touch should defintiely be a style goal for every fashionista. Having a few items that showcase your unique markings will defintitely set you apart from the “fast fashion” crowd as well as help to define your personal style. This is especially true for leather items like Esperanza’s boots or a leather jacket. These pieces truly seem to look better with age and a little wear.
Esperanza completed her ’70’s-inspired look with a braided, leather belt and her gorgeous afro full of tight curls. She wore not a single piece of jewelry, minimal makeup and no nail polish making for a breathtakingly fresh look. Now that, to me, is the defintion of a natural beauty.
