This was one of my favourite jackets when I was working in the corporate market. I wore it when I needed extra confidence in a challenging situation. I felt that the structured shoulders added a touch of authority.
It is by Armani collezioni. I bought it in Selfridges in their sale. The fabric is tough but soft being a wool mixture with a touch of cashmere.
I have teamed it above with a simple grey cashmere sweater, grey ankle length trousers and a pair of suede flats.
For a more casual look I am wearing the jacket with a pair of NYDJ straight black jeans.
A quality tailored jacket should never leave our closet! This is a perfect one!
I agree a good jacket is the answer to many fashion problems from smart to casual.
A great jacket is a staple piece to wear with so many outifts. I know why this continues to be part of your wardrobe.
Oh, I love the jacket over the layered tops! What a great look. I think the hallmark of a “good” jacket is that it works just as well with more casual outfits.
