I love the color chartreuse. I like pretty much all greens (except for sage green) and am very fond of the acidic greens, which I think of as the weirdy greens.
This Robert Rodriguez jacket popped up on Gilt a couple of years ago and I snapped it up. In many respects, it’s classic – double-breasted, linen (blended with cotton for resilience), self-fabric belt for tying in a square knot and bow. But the color and the buttons (which are a patinaed greeny gold) really give it distinction.
Can such a distinctively colored jacket adapt? Of course it can.
With black linen trousers and a striped t-shirt, this jacket is still appropriate for business, but a little more relaxed.
With a black blouse and cropped cotton pants, it’s another look. This one is definitely casual, but polished. Please do note the purple shoelaces. They are the best part.
