Today’s Outfit: Inspired by Snow

30 Dec

No white after Labor Day? Whatever – watch me. The snow is gleaming white in my small Brooklyn enclave (and every other nook of NYCs borroughs) and I was inspired by its (temporary) pristineness today.  Plus, there’s nothing like a bold contrast in color to wake you up (or, wake me up). Black on white is the most contrasting effect you can have.  At first blush, this jacket seems like a throw on, nothing special. But at closer look, you’ll see it’s not ordinary; rather it’s very unique.  Check it out below and I’ll tell you why.

First, the details:

The reasons I love this jacket:

1. Oversized, floppy collar

2. Cargo details – the drawstring at the elbows and at the waist

3. The heavy fabric – Triacitate (what does that mean? it feel like something you’d make a parachute out of, very industrial)

4.  It’s gleaming, crisp, bright white (I wear this in the summer over tanks, in the winter as shown)

A closer look at how the collar falls and how the drawstrings cinch the elbow-length cuffs and waist
