I recently purchased a black and white tailored blazer from Talbots, and it has quickly become one of my favorite pieces (it’s still second to by navy blazer). The Dobby Dot Jacket has personality without being as loud as a colorful or floral print, so it still works in professional settings, and the top button hits at my natural waist, so it’s very flattering. Unfortunately most smaller sizes are no longer available online, but if you click the “find it in a store” button you can easily locate any size and have the individual store ship it to you, or reserve online and then pick it up in person- very convenient!
Here’s a close-up of the stitched pattern and black piping:
When I first wore the jacket a few weeks ago I styled it with fuschia! Sometimes black is harsh against my pale skin, but the light pink sweater brings color back to my face.
What I wore:
Talbots Jazz pink cotton pullover (Talbots)
Black skinny micro-cords – it was a bit colder out at the time, but black cigarette pants like these would work just as well.
A simple string of pearls (Every girl should have this, even if they are not real!)
