From her bomber jacket to her aviator shades, it looks like this FOF took style cues from Amelia Earhart. But, does her outfit pass with flying colors or does it crash and burn? See what our FOF Style Gurus think. Then, share your opinion by leaving a comment, below.
Terry Gibralter: “I really like the cool, fitted cargos and and the leather bomber is always a ‘do’ but the rest of the outfit is a miss. The lacy scarf doesn’t work with the sportiness of the outfit and I don’t like the colors of the bag and shoes. All the different colors she’s wearing; brown, 2 shades of rust, green, white and black, are really keeping this outfit from flying high.”
Lovey Dash: “This outfit looks uncomfortable. Too many shades of what I call ‘luggage colors.’ Everything looks outdated. Crash and burn immediately! Well, except for the sunglasses.”

Glenyse Thompson: “She looks fabulous! It’s modern and classic at the same time. I love everything about her outfit–FOFlight of fancy!”

Sherrie Mathieson: “Everything looks off–the hairstyle and over-bleached color is wrong for her and her glasses are unflattering. The black leather jacket creates too ‘hard’ of a look.The doily-like scarf is completely out of place with the outfit. The bag is way too large. Dark brown to match her belt would have been better. The shoes shorten her legs. A pair of dark brown riding boots would have been a better choice.”
Susan Sommers: “I love leather and often wear the same leather pieces year after year in different ways. And while a black leather jacket is my item of choice, sometimes it just looks better in brown. The jacket in a rich brown or cordovan would work better with this entire look. I’d then change the frames on the aviators so they are a bit more like the Ray Bans worn in the film, “Five Easy Pieces,” with thin silver or gold rims all around. The lace scarf is a nice touch.”
Susan Hersh: “Too many shades of brown! A black, leather bomber jacket looks best with black leather accessories. This handbag choice overwhelms her small frame and the cognac color seems
obtrusive. I like feminine mixed with biker chic but the lace scarf is outdated. There are plenty of
feminine tops with tulle or lace that are more on-trend.”
