Jessica Simpson put her own personal flair on a formal outfit. The fashion designer dipped into her archives to revive a timeless statement piece. The aesthetically pleasing moment shows Simpson standing in front of a beautiful spring background.

“Fun fact- I wore this Gucci skirt promoting the first season of Newlyweds at 22yrs old on Craig Killburn (@rachelzoe remember this?) #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 navy blue cropped jacket. The outerwear gave the illusion of a blazer due to its structured lapels and pointy shoulder pads.

The “Dukes of Hazzard” actress complemented 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, streamlined creases and a slightly pleated hemline.

To amp up the glamour, the multi-hyphenate superstar accessorized with black oversized shades, a choker necklace, multiple bracelets and diamond rings. She styled her signature long blond tresses in soft beach waves and rounded out the look with a pretty pink pout.

Completing her look was a pair of black platform “Immie” sandals from her namesake brand. The 4.5-inch heels had a knotted strap and a thick outer sole. They retail for $97 on Dsw.com.

Platform sandals feature an elevated sole and typically have a heel high of 4 inches or higher. The platformed construction helps compensate for the height of the heel, allowing for more height than a traditional pump without any added discomfort.

Simpson frequently wears her own namesake brand’s pumps, boots and sandals. She has also been spotted in platform sandals, pumps and heeled boots by Aquazzura, Saint Laurent and Stuart Weitzman over the years. When off-duty, she can be seen in ankle boots and comfy slides by Gucci, Sacai and Fendi. Of course, she’s often seen wearing styles from her namesake brand as well.
