Today's outfit is very trendy for Spring 2013. According to Fashion Face off on E! and various other sources Leather is something you can plan on seeing all season long. Further into my trend research I found Denim is also a trend that you will see in many pieces this season (not just Jeans). Black is a staple color of my wardrobe for many reasons: It is a classic neutral tone, it's slimming, it goes with everything.
This style of two tone jacket with leather sleeves is very popular. Not alway with denim. A popular Zara coat is similar to this but longer and green material is used instead of denim.
This vibrant Turquoise is a Universal Color that looks great with all skin tones.
(along with Ivory, Mid-Gray, Stone, Taupe, Pewter, Purple, Teal and Lavender according too www.thechicfashionista.com)

I'm also wearing a hot pink lipstick to give another bright pop of color other than the main accent color of the turquoise just to give the outfit some variety.
