Open Front Jacket available in sizes UK8 – UK22 in 6 colour options
Smart Layering Option for Casual Day Wear, Office Wear AND Evening Wear
Open Front Jacket; a smart and multiple use layering option from the M&S Collection at Marks & Spencer.
I love this little jacket because it has many occasion wear options. In the photos above I have styled 2 looks – a casual smart day wear look worn with trousers AND a more conservative office wear or work wear look. This jacket is also ideal for pulling on on top of smart blouses or dresses for an evening wear look.
The jacket is machine washable, light weight and unlined making it the ideal little number for also packing easily into an overnight bag or suitcase. Due to the multiple wear use of the jacket I think that I have today brought you a real find and a little number that is great value for money.
The open front styling to this jacket also makes it deal for ladies with larger busts due to the lack of fitting definition at the chest area. To minimise the appearance of a larger chest I recommend wearing a plain (not patterned) blouse, top or dress underneath the jacket. For an overall slender profile consider a solid colour block from neckline to hemline (or trouser hemline) worn under the jacket i.e. black top and trousers OR if wearing a different colour than black make sure that the colour is the same from neckline to hemline (not contrasting shades of the same colour).
I am 5’9″ tall and a size UK18. I am wearing size UK18 and find the fit (as expected from M&S) comfortable and true to size.
To see the features of this jacket and to hear what I have to say about it have a look at the short video presentation below.
Until next time. Diane xxxx
