If we didn’t tell you these photos were from the past week, you might think you had gotten in to a time machine that had traveled back to 2008. And who could blame you? The huge sunglasses, long blonde hair, thigh-high boots and oversized handbags are all Jessica Simpson staples from her pre-baby days.
But in fact, you’re looking at very recent photos of the star, who has not only returned to her favorite skinny jeans, she’s also returned to her favorite pre-baby look. We marveled at these photos of the star wearing ponchos, leather pants, fuzzy jackets over plunging tees, wide-legged trousers and patterned leggings, all accompanied by a very expensive, very large handbag.
We totally relate to Simpson’s excitement to return to a look that she loved before spending the past few years in maternity clothes. We also think this is a look that really works for her — it’s sort of a “glam jet-setting power lady” vibe that goes well with her bombshell demeanor. But we also think it would be fun for her to mix it up a bit, by adding in a few more modern pieces, like fitted jeans, a varsity jacket or Wayfarer-type shades. Even a haircut with a bit more movement would be an interesting development.
What do you think of Simpson’s style? Is it a little too retro for you, or “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it?”
