Fashintern: I have an emerald green shift dress that I plan to try it with in the spring. Great minds think alike :).
Jessikams: it is a fun piece. It’s verging on being a little crazy in fact. But if I can just figure out how to nail it, it’ll be really something.
Katerina: thank you. Maybe I will take a page out of your book and style it with some black wide legs and a scarf :).
Angie: thanks for the suggestions. I will certainly try it with my larger-than-life denim maxi. Black pants and a white top is how I saw this type of jacket styled on the free people website. It looked casual-cool. Also a column of black is a good, practical suggestion that will help tone it down. I also was thinking a turtleneck would work well with it.... though I don’t have one.
Joy: thank you. I think a stripe top is a great idea. I did try it next to my mustard tee, but the mustard sadly clashed oddly with the gold braiding. Toffee is a clever idea too, and I wouldn’t have thought of it so thank you. I used to have a toffee chino skirt that would have been perfect but it got ...ahem... too tight.
Cindysmith: your ideas are fantastic. I will try it immediately with my white romantic/dramatic blouse, see pic below. Why didn’t I think of that? I’d like to try it over dresses but that’s going to be slightly trickier than I initially thought but I will give it a go.
La B: thank you for the ideas. Really creative suggestions. My flared crop leg jeans could work, and I never would thought of that.
Torontogirl: what a smart idea to try the stripe top with the floral yoke.... I never would’ve considered it but it could look quite funky. This is why I love ylf....
