Here is what I envision an older Sakura to look like. Probably somewhere in her mid 20’s.
I wanted the look to keep with her established aesthetic, while adding new elements. The top and bottom are all one garment, and can be unzipped from the neckline or parting in the skirt. The shoulder are cut out to expose her skin, and the Haruno symbol rings around the opening. Colored a dark red, like her genin-era dress.
The symbol on the back is that for “medic” please excuse my atrocious attempt at replicating it.
The cropped pants and shoes were an intentional homage to Tsunade as well, with everyone always making comparisons between the Sannin and their protegès. The pants, I haven’t decided on black or a dark green (afraid it may look too Christmas-like if done wrong.)
I do have an alternate mission-ready outfit for her that is similar but includes more sensible footwear.
The belt around her waist secures the large pouch at the small of her back, it’s used to hold various tools and scrolls she may need.
Fingerless gloves are now worn, eliminating the need for her removing gloves between fighting and administering medical jutsu, but still protect her knuckles for when she’s smashing her way through a fight.
The butterfly sleeves on the top, and the longer hair (though still retains its choppy layers) serve as a means to add a touch of femininity to the look. I know Sakura has matured and doesn’t care quite as much about her looks, but she also knows that a polished appearance can do wonders in having someone take her seriously.
Also, she’s a very good looking young woman, and I feel like that streak of her that always got a kick out of Naruto’s pranks, may be amused by men being caught stumbling over their words in her presence.
Now, if only I could draw this better and actually color it. “OTZ
