Here we are, embarking on a New Year of Casual Fridays — 49 more of them to go before 2017.
My last Casual post (Sort of Like a PSA) featured an over-sized, somewhat adrogynous jacket — my attempt at mixing it up. But surely you didn’t think I was forsaking the fitted, little jacket? Non, non.
I bought this Rebecca Taylor jacket a couple of years ago. I wasn’t wild about the color, but I loved the cut and fit. The color has since grown on me. It’s a very neutral, light brown — more taupe than true brown — which looks good with medium to dark rinse denim.
The details kind of make the jacket: rhinestone buttons and eyelash fringe finishing the seams. And one very smart dressmaker detail: the vent in the back is actually a kick-pleat. Such a clever choice, because it doesn’t pull the way a vent sometimes will with a fitted jacket.
Have a fantastic weekend!
