Tangerine TopCoat

This outfit was for my mom for a dinner date with another couple.  She bought this orange jacket (now on sale for $40!) and wasn't really sure how to style it. It is a bit tricky because it is open (no buttons) and doesn't have any lapels like a typical blazer (even though it's shaped that way).  On the other hand, this style is extremely flattering because it gives you a perfect hourglass shape just by the way it's cut!

Here are my options that I created for this jacket to make it a wearable and versatile piece!

  • With a navy blue skirt (substitute pants or shorts), white tee and green flats
  • With a striped tee, and denim flats
  • With green, orange and nude accents

Tangerine TopCoat

Here is the outfit in person using everything she already owned!

In her own words...
Thanks for the post!  I'll start looking for my green jewelry to put with it.  Think I'll wear pants cuz of the weather.  Now I know even more I need to take you shopping with me!  Got the jacket when I saw [personal shopper] at Nordstrom. I requested the jacket, ... but [we] never thought through too much about what to do with it.  Would  like to go again sometime just to get your opinion ...!
I mean, I know it's my mom, but it feels good to see another woman happy with their Closet Fashion Fixing!
