I have a tuxedo jacket on my wish list for my cocktail capsule, but it would work for plenty of other occasions as well. Ideally, I would like two - cropped one to work with skirts/dresses and longer one/almost boyfriend style for pants. Practically, I might have to settle for one
At DC YLF meeting last weekend we tried this burgundy one by BB Dakota: http://youlookfab.com/welookfa.....oup-outing
I have just found that is is available online in black too (#1). Also, Express just got this one (#2). The BB Dakota jacket is longer, will definitely work for pants, not so sure about skirts ( I am wearing it with a pencil skirt in the photo from the meeting). The Express jacket is a medium length jacket that could either work with both skirts and pants well or maybe not be ideal with either. Both are of similar price, although I will wait for the sale for either. Express one is probably better quality and there are options for matching bottoms (pants and pencil skirt) and a vest.
What are your thoughts on these jackets/their lengths? Which one do you prefer? Do you think I should I get one jacket in medium length or try to look for two separate ones, long and cropped?
