Jessica Simpson put her personal touch on a formal outfit. The fashion designer has drawn on her archives to bring a timeless piece back to life. The aesthetically pleasing moment shows Simpson standing against a beautiful springtime backdrop.
“Fun fact – I wore this Gucci skirt promoting the first season of Newlyweds at 22 on Craig Killburn (@rachelzoe remember?) #19yearslater #hoarder #cancerian,” she captioned a photo shared on Instagram today.
Simpson recalled her hit MTV reality show “Newlyweds” with ex-husband Nick Lachey.
Her ensemble consisted of a short navy blue jacket. The outerwear gave the illusion of a blazer due to its structured lapels and pointed shoulder pads.
The ‘Dukes of Hazzard’ actress completed the overcoat with a white tank top. She continued to make a statement with a Gucci midi skirt. The form-fitting garment had a V-shaped waistline, contoured pleats and a slightly pleated hem.
To amp up the glamour, the multi-hyphenate superstar accessorized with oversized black sunglasses, a choker necklace, multiple bracelets and diamond rings. She styled her signature long blonde tresses in soft beachy waves and completed the look with a pretty pink pout.
To complete her look, a pair of black “Immie” platform sandals from her eponymous brand. The 4.5 inch heels had a tied strap and a chunky outsole. They sell for $97 on Dsw.com.
Platform sandals feature a raised sole and usually have a high heel of 4 inches or more. The platform construction helps compensate for heel height, allowing more height than a traditional pump without any added discomfort.
Simpson frequently wears pumps, boots and sandals from her own eponymous brand. She’s also been spotted in platform sandals, pumps and heeled boots by Aquazzura, Saint Laurent and Stuart Weitzman over the years. When not on duty, she wears comfortable ankle boots and slides by Gucci, Sacai and Fendi. Of course, she is also often seen wearing styles from her eponymous label.
