Do you think this jacket will date quickly?

I saw it yesterday, but wonder if it would date quickly with the ruffles being so "in" now and on this jacket rather prominent.

black ruffle

I actually think it's pretty classic looking

I don't think it would date quickly, but I can speak from experience that having a high neckline on a jacket isn't especially comfortable or practical. Maybe it depends how heavy the jacket is.

It's not very thick fabric, felt very soft too, it's probably not for the depths of winter. I'd have to try it to see how the collar sits, but I'd imagine not being able to wear a scarf with it.

i'd get too fat to wear it, so would be a waste of money grin

In that case I think it's lovely.

It's a beautiful jacket, I think that the topshop version would be likely to date pretty quickly, but that is a beauty, and I reckon you'll be pulling it out of your wardrobe long after you've stopped wearing it all the time.

My friend has a jacket a little like this and unless you have a very swan like neck you end up with make-up all over the collar which is really not a good look.

So, ok for ET but not for normals. grin

It's absolutely gorgeous and I'm not prone to excitement about these things!

Actually, I think it's lovely in the mustard (or 'green ochre' as they are calling it).

I have bigish boobs and look rubbish in polo necks so would not go fo this.

It looks beautiful in the picture though. I don't think it would really date, but agree definately would not be able to wear scarf, unless skinny silky one perhaps, tucked inside the collor and maybe peeking out?

You can turn the collar down though - as per the "green ochre" pics.

I do have quite a duck swan neck and do suit polo necks.

I had decided not to buy anymore clothes for awhile as we are moving to a very small town and not sure I'd get the wear out of it. But if we are all agreed it is a classic, then I should at least try it on.

It would be RUDE not to. grin

Jewelsandgems Fri 21-Aug-09 20:44:56

Definately try it on :>)

And would be great to wear to the office with a pencil skirt and gorgeous bag!

Unfortunately the only thing I'll be wearing to work for the next year will be t-shirt, jeans and steel cap boots. grin

I'll try it next week, when I'm next at work then.
