Yea, Nay, Or Eh: The Prep School Blazer

-------

Who better than a girl from Connecticut to transform a classic prep staple into a fashion must-have? Seeing Chloë Sevigny in a brass-buttoned blazer at Kiehl’s celebration for the Doe Fund last night reminded me I really have to buy that jacket instead of just talking about it. Our market editor recommends Brooks Brothers’ boys department as a source. Do you have any other suggestions?

    I really do love this outfit, women (as I said before) can wear anything. The two things women do not look good in: mens baggy jeans, and mens baggy shirts, come to think of it, NOTHING BAGGY.

    Hahaha thats a good one Emma, mens baggy jeans etc. Even the men don’t look good in it, but’s a kind of an hype these days. Why not wear sophisticated clothes? Valentino and also Ralph Lauren and others have enough beautiful suits,or the casuals of Bjorn Borg. Your blog has in its name couture, so I expect from you that you highlighted it. But it’s the opposite in my opinion. But now to the point, yes she looks gorgious, because she knows how the dress herself, or had her stylist some influence in this? Every one can have a bad day (and she had some) but this is a perfect combination for this event. Arriverderci

    I love the jacket to be honest, I am young so I like to experiment with new things. i.e this is something I would try.
