Everyday Classic

My insanely chic friend bought this Christian Dior jacket, and as much as I’d like to have it too, I know that we would invariably show up someplace both wearing it — not what friends do. However, it got me thinking about Dior and how I don’t own any pieces, even though I include items in posts and folks rave about Maria Grazia Chiuri’s designs for the house. However, if I did own this incredible jacket, this is how I’d wear it — it’s the ultimate everyday classic.

Saint Laurent bag, Sidney Garber ring and earrings, Frame jeans, Converse sneakers.

  • Your previous post with your “rack” of unworn Pandemic purchases and now this post inspired me to pull my rack out. I am now in the process of a major downsizing project to tighten my Spring/Summer uniforms for my client design meet ups and weekend time with the boys. Thank you for the “kic”

  • I’ve been eyeing this Saint Laurent bag. I have the Lulu and it is one of my all time favorites. They’re very similar and I can’t quite justify having both… time will tell if I’m able to hold strong.

  • I bought *both* this jacket and the single-breasted Caro version (and bought the black knit bar jacket in the fall). I absolutely love them – they are super comfortable and perfect for zoom meetings, unlike a structured jacket which just feels silly and artificial when I’m working from my dining room! Dior is just rocking it this year – giving Chanel a run for its money!!

  • Perfection. I say be a copy cat!

  • Love every single piece, and even slightly prefer the single breasted Caro, that Lauren bought. Maybe you should get that one?

  • All the pieces are beyond amazing. Might I suggest you make an inquiry with your friend? I’ve had this same situation before and was surprised at how generous and understanding my friend was about ‘sharing’ and outfit, maybe even coordinating before heading out! The answer might surprise you! Best of luck!

  • I bought a vintage/used Bar jacket in black and white a couple years ago but I do like the idea of a knit Bar double breasted jacket. One to go try on when the stores open next month. I love the bag but debating between the one above and a denim Carre. Great YSL bags recently.

  • Hi Preston, I love the knit Bar jacket! Bought it in black in January, it’s so cozy!! Also agree with your styling recommendations – I wear mine with Frame or JBrand jeans and combat boots!!

  • Preston, I hope my comment this week inspired this post – regardless, for me, my age, my frame, my life, this is how to dress properly, even when casual. ‘Properly’ has become my new requirement/aspiration for fashion.

  • Paula- You are one of the folks who raves about Dior and your comment on the belted coat, along with my friend’s jacket purchase, absolutely inspired this post!
