When Spring is springing (or almost) I really like to get into the true navy blue and white and nautical themes that have been classic styles of this season for decades and decades. In this case, the classic double-breasted jacket with a twist – cape styling(!) and a little military feel.
A cute little sailor-style hat would look so great with this (true vintage, of course). Imagine it with skirts, sheath dresses, slacks, jeans, leggings – a true vintage classic can go with all of them, ups the style quotient and lasts for decades because of its high quality.
In this case, there’s wool warmth, too. Much appreciated this year! I’ve loved my vintage military pea jacket for winter, but now it’s time for a change. Perfect outerwear to bridge the seasons from cold to cool in fashionable elegance, with a lighter, brighter feel . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
