This Neutral Jacket Is Anything But “Boring”

    This is a great tweed jacket! Initially, I was going to add “maybe not for your first tweed jacket” but it is a bargain & striking! The Bloomingdale site shows the back of the jacket. Tweed jackets are a great investment!

    I love the idea, but the jacket does not work for me, nor honestly does it strike me as neutral. My mom had an outfit that featured pants with one white leg and one dotted one: I never thought to see anything like it again. The other pieces are nice., especially the white trousers. I can’t wait for Spring in NE, which despite our current temp, is more than a month away.

    Love that jacket! So fun, classic and edgy all in one. Kind of like Coco Chanel meets Cruella deVille in a very cool way! Great find!

    I’m wondering about the length of pants in general. I notice in your pics here that your pants sit just past the heel of your shoe. I wear ankle length pants usually so maybe I am just not used to a longer pant. ( I am 5’7″) I recently saw a picture of Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge and her pants were very wide and covered her entire shoe. I thought it looked like too much fabric around her legs and feet. What are your thoughts?

    • Beth Djalali says:

      it all depends on the silhouette of the pant. ankle pants should hit your ankle. trousers with a wider leg (like today’s pant) should cover the heel of your shoe. cropped wide-leg pants can either hit your ankle or above your ankle. maybe a blog post is in the making.

  5. Very interesting, never seeing a jacket like that
    Cute,it looks very nice on you.
    Thank you beth

    I wasn’t going to comment but I had to say I love that jacket! What an interesting and different look. I love it!!
    And it does go with black or white pants.

  7. I like tweed jackets. I have one in pale pink. I do not know if I am brave enough to buy one that is half white and half black. I have to maybe get use to the idea. Need to think on this more. Looks nice on you.

    Hi Beth, the whole outfit looks fabulous on you. I do love the jacket but unlike you, I have a pooch or menopot! What would you suggest for wearing shorter jackets? What are your thoughts? (I have an injured lower back so have never been able to tighten up my tummy muscles with exercise unfortunately).
