I wore this outfit quite a while ago and discovered that I hadn't published the photos... hence the lightweight jacket when the weather was a little milder! I've had the jacket since spring of this year but haven't yet worn it on the blog - I love the bold black and white stripes and the cropped length. A lot of people say horizontal stripes make you look wider, but to be honest I think it's all about the styling. These stripes are broken up by the front of the jacket, and I think the style lends itself perfectly to skinny flared jeans and my black 60s style cap with that fabulous snakeskin effect peak.
Since the jacket is no longer available, I've picked out a few alternatives below - is it me or do stripes seem more of a summer pattern? It doesn't matter either way (there are no rules, are there), but do you also think of summer when you look at stripes...?
BTW if you're in the US: Happy Thanksgiving! But if you're celebrating today I guess you'll be busy eating too much turkey to bother looking at this...? ;)
