it's black and white stripes.

i usually wear indigo jeans/ballet pumps or black boots......what tops can i wear under it that won't look strange??????

i felt a tad out of place wearing it earlier so could do with a bit of help with this one please?

How long is it?

no idea how to link from my phone, sorry!

it's single breasted, v neck, belt at the waist and two big pockets over mid thigh ish. just above knee length on me (am a five foot tall short arse!). stripes are maybe half an inch wide too. if that helps picture it at all smile

Sounds v cool! I guess with brightly
Coloured top underneath, or print clash if you're brave? Will take thought, it's part of your outfit rather than something to chuck on top.

i think that's what made my head go confused when he produced it, it's very similar in style to my ancient and battered winter coat but stripes are a new one for me.

will have to do a bit of trying on and just wear it i think to get used to them

Where is it from? I can look it up and link it for you.

he picked it up in one of the nicer charity shops in town, tags still on too!

i think from the label it's originally from very or littlewoods maybe, it's not a brand i've ever heard of but can't remember what it is without getting up again......something like 'coast'or 'style'

Red, pink, jade, yellow. Most colours really. It sounds nice.

it is really nice, just a big change from plain bright red! confused

It sounds great. I think it would look good with a plain orange top, or any plain bright colour, but also (if feeling less bold) with grey or black underneath. And/or experiment with prints - a black and white floral print would be funky, or a multicoloured small print.
