Paris – Jackets

One item that I neglected to include in my previous post about Paris fashion trends (I knew I was forgetting something!) was the velvet or corduroy blazer in autumn colors. Above, from Banana Republic velvet, $175.

J.Crew velvet, $168.

Talbot’s corduroy, $98.

    FAB. Miss J loves velvet & cord blazers. Wonder if we’ll ever get to wear them this year. Some weather, huh?

    I am thrilled this is a Paris trend. I have many corduroy jackets: black, green and orange. And, I am in the market for a velvet jacket. I tried the Jcrew one and none of their colours did much for me. I just found the BR one in that gorgeous aubergine colour. It is sitting in my BR cart just waiting for me to find a 30% off code.:-)

    love that…recently acquired a gorgeous burgundy/aubergine color velvet Ralph Lauren jacket that I’ve yet to pull out and wear. I do believe it is time…and to go through my scarves and find something lovely to pair with it 🙂

    LBR – wouldn’t you know everyone is sending coupons except BR!

    Erin – Ralph Lauren makes some really nice jackets. The nice thing about that burgundy/aubergine color is that it really works well with so many other colors.

    Miss Janey – I think the weather is a’changin!

    I’ve got that J.Crew jacket in Navy, but it’s still too hot to enjoy. I hate California.
