Well, maybe.
I had a bad week at work last week and I dropped into H&M on Friday night for some retail therapy. Where I met this jacket. I try to avoid statement jackets because I tend to tire of pattern quickly. But this was inexpensive, and I was feeling sorry for myself, and...you know the rest of the story.
Anyway, I kind of love it. Besides the black and white pattern, which is very much to my liking, it has braiding and fringe! It is mostly cotton so it has a nice nubby texture.
I wore this outfit to dinner last weekend. I am also wearing an ASOS long sleeved dress with a sleeveless turtleneck knit dress over that. The dresses have a similar curved hem, which I like because it showcases the OTK boots. I thought the boots had had their last wear but we were eating outside (!!) and walking 8 km so I needed to be comfortable and warm. Still pretty chilly here at night!
I opted for more pattern and texture with the faux zebra hair bag.
I enjoyed this outfit a lot. What say you, minimally maximal? I don't think it's full on maximal.
BTW, the jacket is still available on the H&M website. I couldn't create a find for some reason.
