How do you tell if a coat or a jacket is an outdoor or indoor type?
Folks, it has been bugging me forever. How do you tell if a coat or a jacket is an outdoor type overcoat or something you can wear as a blazer inside? I guess I understand if something has fur collar and is made of really thick fabrick and has those -whatever they are called, – wide strips around the end of the sleeve (near the arm) – it would be a belt it was sewn around the waist- so I understand, those would be outdoors. Or if it’s featured on a model clearly enjoying the outdoors. But other than that?…. I REALLY would like to know. I am on a contant lookout for long, duster length, toppers to wear to work. How can I tell from a picture online if it’s an inside or an outside item????
say, this item from Marisota – is it a blazer replacement?
Massha, the fabric description sounds like inside wear, but the Marisota item description "duster coat" sounds like outerwear. And in the Product Info, it’s referred to as a "coat." The way it’s styled with that print dress, it looks like an Easter outfit, so I think it’s meant to be outerwear for the spring. It looks good in the pic with her sleeves rolled up.
I don’t know about the sizing of this item. I’d check that out. It’s too large on her frame — the sleeves are too long, and the shoulders are hanging down, but at the same time it’s a bit snug in the chest.
I don’t think arm length indicates whether it’s inside or outside. Some outwear jackets and capes have shorter sleeves and are worn with longer gloves. I’d rely on the description of the item and how it’s styled in the pics.
I think this jacket/duster/topper — if it fit properly — would look good worn inside, with black (slimmer) pants and black top, jewelry, maybe a scarf. I would wear this inside if it’s thin enough fabric and lining. I think it would look elegant! But I’m with you on the peach … I need a pink "jewel" tone, not a peachy tone.
put the coat on and look in the mirror. if you look in the mirror and it does not look "right" to you, don’t wear it indoors and/or vice-versa (don’t wear it outdoors). i believe that our "gut feeling" or human "instict/intuition" is usually/most likely 99.99% right. i say, trust yourself. just a friendly tip…….i love you massha!! xoxo.
Massha…go for it. I think it’s a gorgeous jacket and can think of great ways to wear it…and besides Heidi and some of your other collections will go well with it. :smileywink:
I agree ..if the fabric is like a blazer wear it indoors. Some coats are thin and light enough. I think its absolutely gorgeous. If its not hot just do your own thing! Maybe you will start a trend….Massha Uniquely for You!
I love Heidi. I have collected many of her items . I prefere her chanpagne collecction as the stone picks up such brilliant light. Yes with the sleve length in this picture I see possibly doing a push back as I would put my pastel pearls with several bangels. I adore your idea Eve
And the most important thing…how will Heidi look with it? LOL
But seriously, what’s it say about the fabric?
Massha…I think if it’s comfortable to you…wear it!!!! Push up the sleeves…and wear it. It’s going to be personal preference when it comes to something like this. I think if boyfreind blazers are ok…why isn’t this? IF the fabric is right. It’s all about the fabric.
I see this as simply tastful .I adore the color. Is it possible to have the arms tailored as you must show off a bangle or too. I see potential, Eve
Massha, I think that is a very heavyweight blazer better suited (no pun intended) as outerwear. It just looks too heavy for all day wear unless you are cold all the time.
I agree…but that looks car coaty to me. Sleeves too long
a topper. cross between a blazer, duster, coat, not exactly any of them.
