When you decide on a jacket, what’s the first color that comes to mind?
For me, it’s usually black. Black goes with EVERYTHING. It’s functional and moody, just the way I like it (not that I’m always moody… 😀 ).
But does your mood ever strike a sudden rebellious cord and you feel like steering away from your all-black outfit, maybe by adding just a layer of extra punch?
That’s where an out-of-this world-colored jacket comes into play. This has got to be my favorite Nasty Gal find to date, though only recent. I once wore this to a dinner outing, and a friend took one glance at me and asked, Whoa, what are you trying to do? Be in a marching band? …rhetorically, of course. It was right then and there that I wished I had picked up a black moto jacket instead. I put it away for a loooong while (almost 2 years!) and I have to admit, I was a little embarrassed by it.
But then, when I was moving into my condo, it reappeared. And the color was mesmerizing. I realized, no, I actually LOVE this jacket. Wool + moto + electric blue. What’s not to love about it?
It’s the perfect mix of edge, style, and comfort. It’s no longer available for purchase, and I can’t seem to find anything online of the same fabric, style and color, but see here for a similar wool-blend moto-style jacket in an awesome leopard print, and here for a wool-cashmere blend, if you’re up for the splurge. There’s no shame in adding some fresh, vibrant colors and prints into your wardrobe!
P.S. We took these pics while standing against (what felt like) 50 km/hr winds… so for this post I had to go with a lot of head cut-off shots to maintain your viewing pleasure. 😀
Sigh… the struggles.
Have a fantastic day!!
