On our first sale outing before the holidays, I covered the classics; now it’s time for the fun, not-quite-everyday stuff. Like this boucle jacket with chain details, which sits right at the intersection of French lady and rock and roll.
I’ve been obsessing over short-sleeved coats lately, and have had my eye on this one in particular all season. The leopard print is nice and faded out, which keeps it from coming off too costumey or retro, and the cut couldn’t be cleaner, which ditto.
True, I might never actually wear them. And yet part of me feels I must have them.
There’s nothing that comes off as surprisingly sophisticated as a well-executed dot print, and this Equipment top in red and navy gets it just exactly right.
There has been much discussion of the more down-the-rabbit-hole aspects of J. Crew’s collection this season (sequined sweatshirts; T-shirts studded with leather flowers; bejeweled button-downs) and this silk-embroidered cashmere sweater is definitely part of the lunacy. It looks a bit like wearing a rug on your chest—but in a way I’m actually sort of digging.
