With a black lace dress.

Just tried one on in Zara. I'm worried it might be a bit bumble bee. sad

EeyoreIsh Mon 17-Jun-13 16:19:05

Yes. But then I regularly wear a neon pink jacket grin

Oh yes - sounds great. Would be very useful with other outfits too - instant colour, instant style.

Personally no as I'd look like a big yellow beach ball

However I saw someone wearing one a week or two ago & absolutely loved it. I felt very envy that she was young, slim & gorgeous enough to pull it off!

If I was 20 and skinny yes otherwise no (as I am neither!)

Oh crap. I'm not 20 and not skinny. Will find links.

Blazer looks a lot brighter in the sho!

Owllady Mon 17-Jun-13 17:32:21

yes they will look nice together, go for it

MikeLitoris Mon 17-Jun-13 17:32:39

I would.

And now I want that dress and it is out of stock sad

EeyoreIsh Mon 17-Jun-13 17:32:46

both look lovely, but do the two lengths work together?

Trills Mon 17-Jun-13 17:33:41

I would not wear a neon yellow blazer.

KneeDeepInDaisies Mon 17-Jun-13 17:36:29

I have no idea Eeyore. I haven't actually tried them together!

I also saw one in a brightish pink from Zara.

EleanorFarjeon Mon 17-Jun-13 18:31:44

Yellow renders me the colour of cat shit, so no.

DeathByTray Mon 17-Jun-13 18:35:16

Don't ever go to the M.E.N. Arena wearing that blazer as you'll be mistaken for a steward.

When you said neon yellow I thought you meant lollipop lady look alike but that yellow is fine! Looks nice smile

It looks a lot more yellow in RL. I'm having a wobble about it already.

Word to the wise ...I bought a fab bright yellow jacket and felt great until I wore it to go on holiday where upon it turned itself into hi-vis jacket at the airport and a hi-di-hi holidaymakers at the hotel . grin

KneeDeepInDaisies Tue 18-Jun-13 12:04:50

I've bought the yellow blazer. shock

I will not wear it to the MEN or an airport. grin

I tried on the pink one but the yellow is nicer but a bit tighter on the arms. If I cut a bit of the lining will that make it looser?

TheEarlOf Tue 18-Jun-13 12:59:47

If it's the issue of the lining tugging when moving about and making it tight then yes cutting the lining will help. Otherwise probably won't
