Cream summer jacket

A cream jacket can be one of the most useful wardrobe items. It is extremely versatile.  There are a variety of  special occasions where a cream jacket would come in handy. It could equally well be dressed down with a pair of jeans and flats or sneakers.

I purchased the one I am wearing last year from Zara. This year there are an even wider range of cream jackets in various styles and fabrics available in the shops and online.

I have added a touch of the modern and on trend by teaming my classic cream jacket with a pair of new style wide ankle length trousers by MeandEm.  and a classic black tee also by MeandEm. I have added a pair of  black medium heel court shoes. Some years old (similar John Lewis and Nordstrom). If heels are not your thing and I do admit that I mostly wear flats these days; you could easily substitute a dressy pair of flats for the heels.

Once again I have chosen a clean monochrome look. For smarter occasions this appears to be my go to option.

      Hi Jill
      No excuses but I have had a bit of a chaotic week. It is Zara (that well known High street chain) not Sara. The jacket is from last year. I have popped in a few times this year and have not found their collection so good and the quality of the fabrics seem to have declined.

    Really simple outfit & very flattering – no need to pile on accessories . I’m so messy though & it wouldn’t look the same with dirty splodges!
