WIW: Cobalt and Stripes

Hi Ladies,

Finally debuting my new striped jacket. I fell in love with this jacket and was very excited to see how good Lyn D looks in hers:)

Given this jacket falls at the widest part of my hip, I have been a little challenged with getting the right bottom layer and I'm hoping I have the proportions ok here.

I have discovered this cut of jacket seems to work best on me with skirts or straight leg pants.

I do think a slightly fitted jacket with nipped in waist is the best look for me bit it's nice to have the option of a different silhouette.

Thanks for looking and your thoughts and suggestions much appreciated.

xxxDeborah

    Deborah, I think you look lovely (as always) but if you want to play - I know I always do - I would take off the necklace & try a thin cobalt or other bright coloured belt at the waist. Imo that would take the eye away from the outside of your body to the inside & also accent your waist.

    I hereby crown you Queen Always Gorgeous!

    Caro you are a wise woman. Thank you. I will try that when I get home tonight. This skirt is one that I normally wear with a blouse untucked but perhaps I could belt the blouse over the skirt?

    Gosh Angie, you are so lovely! If I may be so bold, I crown you Queen Encourager for your always kind, supportive and encouraging words.

    That is pretty Deborah, I'm envious of how beautiful and feminine you always look : )
    I find the the gradation of the stripes draws my eyes vertically rather than settling on your area of concern.

    Super polished and entrepreneurial looking!

    I have to start with this... OMG Deborah, you have amazing legs.

    I really love the outfit. I think the stripes work well with the cobalt. Love that cobalt too.

  • Day Vies replied 8 years ago

    I love love love this color combination especially with the graphic stripes. You look wonderful!

  • Mona replied 8 years ago

    Love this outfit. something about black and white and cobalt makes me sing.

  • Thistle replied 8 years ago

    So polished and refined!

    Perhaps it is my magpie speaking, but perhaps a bit of sparkle at the neck? Either a cobalt necklace as Carro recommended, or perhaps a contrasting color like coral to really bring the focus inside the stripes?

    Deborah, this is a very elegant look and proportions look just fine to me.
    And of course I cannot avoid to like any outfit with cobalt in it :-)

  • Transcona Shannon replied 8 years ago

    I don't know how you do it day after day Deborah - you always look so put together and positively stunning. You have amazing style.

  • catgirl replied 8 years ago

    This is such a perfect color combo - I may copy with my cobalt dress tomorrow. :)

  • lyn67 replied 8 years ago

    I like the new siloutte, you cannot go wrong with such a quality item, and of course, the cobalt skirt:-)

  • Deborah replied 8 years ago

    Thanks so much for your feedback. I am thrilled you all feel the proportions are working here. I have been concerned I may have made a mistake buying this jacket. My next attempt is going to be the jacket over my blue denim straight leg jeans...fingers crossed.

    Dianthus thanks for the lovely compliment. I have my mums legs...sounds funny I know but even now in her early 70's my mum has lovely slender legs.

    Thistle thanks for the suggestions. I will try them out.

    Una, hope to see your dress tomorrow..will be looking for your post:)

    So much love for cobalt at the moment:). I have four things in cobalt, this skirt, a blouse/tunic, jeans and crop (don't tell Angie) pants but none of the cobalts are quite the same! I was planning a column of cobalt but maybe it's not to be!

    And thank you all for your very kind comments. I am constantly overwhelmed by not only your outer beauty but you inner beauty expressed on your communications on the
    Forum xxx

    You had me at the title alone, but the execution blows me away!

    Lovely chic and beautiful.
