Gabrielle Union may not be the Emmy-nominated actress she’s always dreamed of being, but she has parlayed her cute face and perfect brown skin into a career as a real Basketball Wifey and a gorgeously styled chick around the celebrity scene. She was recently spotted during New York Fashion Week showing off her almost forty and fab body with lots of lace and plenty of legs.

This look is adorable for so many reasons. It’s effortless and more importantly easy to duplicate. You can find a great leather jacket and loose-fitting shorts from any brand for a reasonable price point.

Style Notes:

A leather jacket is a closet essential. So don’t pack up your summer clothes just yet – add this staple piece to a sundress for a great transitional fall look.

If you’re not into bearing as much skin as Gabrielle does, try a pair of funky printed tights and a cotton button down blouse with this look.
