    This brown peplum Moto jacket is quite good looking, but I’d hesitate to wear it with my physique (small waist, wide hips). The peplum would not flatter my hips. I’d feel self conscious. If the jacket cut were flat in the back, I’d snatch it up!

    What a fabulous outfit! This display would definitely catch my eye … especially that jacket which is a WOW!!

    Of course, I’d have to try all these pieces on, but somehow I’d find a way to make this work. Colors are marvelous!

    This is a big YES!

    I used to wear similar outfits when I was still working. I would still wear it with boots but no longer wear turtlenecks and blue is not my color. I would wear it with a blush colored lightweight sweater. The jacket would also be great with slacks or jeans.

      I do like the outfit but except for the top, it is not my style and would not flatter my figure. As a retiree I would swap the skirt with a black , grey or brown pant. I lovemost blues and have a lot of it as it suits me. Thanks for sharing. I always am on the lookout for other colours to go with blue. I hope you continue to enjoy Vancouver where myeldedt son lives and works.

    Absolutely! Love a pencil skirt and Moro jacket! xo

    I like this look! The colors, the simple lines, the jacket… I would have to try the skirt on (the slim fit and length might or might not work for my body shape – I’m a pear) but it’s a thumbs up from me

  6. November 9, 2019 / 12:13 pm

    I would wear the jacket and sweater, I would love the windowpane plaid in pants since I don’t wear skirts.

    Love the outfit. I would wear the ensemble just as shown.

    I love the look especially if you add high boots but I couldn’t wear it. I need v necklines and pants for comforts sake. I would love a pair of pants in that fabric and a soft tee shirt would be great under the jacket. Maybe add a scarf . I wouldn’t change a thing about the jacket, Those colors work for me.

    • November 9, 2019 / 8:20 pm

      Thanks for explaining your styling ideas Eve

    The outfit is a no for me because it wouldn’t be flattering to my figure. The jacket is too short for me. I love the color of the sweater, but I have a short neck. A mock neck sweater works better for me. Again, I like the skirt, but it is the wrong style & length for me. I look better in a shorter A-line skirt.

    Love it all. The whole outfit works. Of course I would try it on first and adjust accordingly. I really like it when store pair items to make a good looking outfit. It really helps.

  11. November 9, 2019 / 11:05 am

    Yes, I would wear this, with the exception of the pencil skirt. I like the skirt, but not for me. I would happily wear the jacket and the blue sweater and I like the necklace. I actually have a blue turtleneck sweater almost the same color and it compliments my blue eyes. It’s not often that I wear a turtle neck, but I have several for those very rare cold days in SoCal. I would wear the top and jacket with black or charcoal trousers with some low boots.

    This is one of the nicest and most practical outfits that have appeared on the mannequins. So, yes I’d wear it if it suited my body type, which it doesn’t.

    I love the colour of the jacket, especially paired with the blue, and will be on the lookout for something similar.

  13. November 9, 2019 / 10:09 am

    Love everything about this outfit! It’s very chic and modern. Really love the jacket! You could wear the jacket with so many things and a variety of colors. What a great travel piece as it would go over a dress, jeans and a tee or blouse or sweater with pants. The possibilities are endless! Where can I get it??

  14. Jayne
    November 9, 2019 / 10:08 am

    Love this outfit. Would wear it with boots or pumps.

  15. Lucretia Roletta
    November 9, 2019 / 9:58 am

    Totally like this outfit with the skirt being longer. I’m into midi with boots. I would have to see the jacket closed and what the back looks like but this mannequin would catch my eye in the store.

  16. Eileen
    November 9, 2019 / 9:44 am

    If I were still “going out to business” I would definitely wear it. In retirement I would change the skirt to pants for an upscale casual look. The sweater color is beautiful.

  17. Deb

    Yes defnitely!

  18. Anon
    November 9, 2019 / 9:18 am

    Perfect for pears! I’d wear the jacket with a different bottom. Pencil skirts aren’t perfect for pears.

  19. Joanna
    November 9, 2019 / 9:05 am

    I like it, a lot! I love pencil skirts (so classic) and the windowpane fabric ups it’s style. The blue turtleneck I would wear. I love turtlenecks in the winter because I’m always cold and the blue brings out my blue eyes. So, that would be coming home with me. The moto jacket adds a little youthful edge and takes it from office to drinks afterwards. Even the style of the chain is trending. Good one, Jennifer!

    • November 9, 2019 / 8:23 pm

      Glad you like it Joanna

  20. Dawn
    November 9, 2019 / 8:58 am

    I love everything about the outfit! The skirt and sweater are classic and the jacket gives it an edge! I love the sweater color….perfect. I would buy everything and could wear the pieces with other items in my closet. Love the look!

  21. Diane Hagen
    November 9, 2019 / 8:58 am

    I like the pattern of the skirt but pencil skirts are not for me. The turtleneck is striking and I would wear it. Nix to the jacket. The crop style with zippers is too young for me 70+ but would look great on others.

  22. Dianne Engman
    November 9, 2019 / 8:44 am

    A great outfit.!
    Very nicely put together.
    I might wear it with pants, I don’t wear skirts very often anymore.
    The jacket is gorgeous.

  23. Mary
    November 9, 2019 / 7:48 am

    Absolutely! I can see it working with any jewel tone. Love it!

  24. November 9, 2019 / 7:32 am

    Love the outfit, especially if it came in petite!

  25. Cheryll
    November 9, 2019 / 7:28 am

    Yes, would wear the whole outfit just like it is.

  26. Linda L

    Motor jackets never appealed to me; I have a long torso and always felt they did not hit me where they should. The zipper on them feels off kilter. I prefer my jackets tailored. The skirt and sweater comb is beautiful. It’s a good look for the office or job but retirement rarely calls for an ensemble like this. It’s still in the 90’s in the California desert so I’m sporting lighter fabrics! Jennifer, your style has been so helpful in helping me transition to a California style.

    • November 9, 2019 / 8:25 pm

      I’m so glad to hear I’ve been helpful, Linda! It’s entirely my pleasure

    love the outfit and would wear it

  28. Susan McClelland
    November 9, 2019 / 6:56 am

    I really like this outfit. It’s work-appropriate but the jacket gives it an edge that works with my overall style. Plus, I could wear it with lots of other pieces in my wardrobe. I find turtlenecks too tight around my neck so would trade the sweater for a crew or a cowl.

  29. Sue
    November 9, 2019 / 6:50 am

    I love this look. Especially like the jacket style and color, it would be great with black. And great with jeans. I also love turtlenecks in the winter for the additional warmth and the pop of color or accent they can add to the heavier coat worn over my outfit.

  30. Mary
    November 9, 2019 / 6:46 am

    Love it but since putting on weight it would draw attention to my heavy mid-section. Ten years ago though…I’d have been all over this.

  31. Beth M.
    November 9, 2019 / 6:46 am

    This outfit gets an enthusiastic yes from me! I like the colors, the textures, the versatility. With a few easy variations (like changing shoe styles, adding a scarf, changing the jacket for another topper), this could go anywhere, and the color is flattering and seasonal. This would look good on you, Jennifer!

  32. Lea
    November 9, 2019 / 6:39 am

    Yes to the brown jacket, but in real leather. That’s my style of skirt. Also the blue turtleneck but not in cashmere/wool. Very nice basics to have in one’s wardrobe. I’m imagining it with so many different coloured tops, a thin stripe would be awesome, print top, the fun I’d have! Oh, and fun with tights. Lol

  33. Eileen
    November 9, 2019 / 6:38 am

    I have two jackets like this, one in suede, one in leather, as a pear it works with my curves. I’m not a big fan of the synthetic material used, not breathable. I have a sweater similar. The skirt, no, as a pear the pattern doesn’t work well.

  34. Francie99
    November 9, 2019 / 6:34 am

    I love the skirt and I have one just like it. The turtleneck is a nice color but I tend not to like turtlenecks because I find them too restricting and hot. The Moto jacket I would not buy, I feel like moto jackets in general are overdone this season and they seem too trendy.

  35. November 9, 2019 / 6:32 am

    The color, the fit all work for me. I would change the blue turtleneck to a burnt orange or warm white or something that compliments my coloring.

  36. Carolyn Robinson
    November 9, 2019 / 6:23 am

    Great outfit – sadly not on this 5′ body ?. Love the way the jacket seems to pick up the color of the windowpane pattern in the skirt.

  37. Sue
    November 9, 2019 / 6:22 am

    I wouldn’t have thought of that blue with that color jacket and skirt but I really like it! That’s why I like these posts– a bit of a eye expander!
    Pencil skirts are not usually my friend–I would need to try it on, possibly size up and then hem it a bit. I would get more wear from pants, however, since I no longer work in an office. No tucked in top on this short-waisted body! I would wear the sweater out.

    • Cindy
      November 9, 2019 / 7:32 am

      Love everything about it! I would only change the style of the blue top to a v-neck or mock turtleneck as I have a short neck.

  38. Angie
    November 9, 2019 / 6:16 am

    The color and style are not a look for me.

  39. MRSBEN2
    November 9, 2019 / 6:06 am

    Though I do like all three pieces and have the body type to wear them, I would nix the jacket as feel the motto style is way too young for my age group and would replace it with a different one . (Namely without all the zippers.) As for footwear and/or handbag accessorizing; I feel it offers numerous possibilities. -Brenda-

    Love the colors and look however I am short (5’2), broad shoulders and big busted. The Moto jacket with the skirt accentuates these characteristics. Even with pants the Moto jacket is a negative. Same colors but a boyfriend jacket and pants would be better. A wrap or shawl neck blot would create a v neckline reducing the breadth and size of my upper body. Short boots and statement jewelry would work well.

  41. Pat
    November 9, 2019 / 5:49 am

    I love the look, but I’m too short and busty. Wish I could.

  42. Freda Witt
    November 9, 2019 / 5:49 am

    Love the jacket, and would definitely wear it. Really like the color of the sweater, but don’t wear turtlenecks. I would look for it in round or vneck, and maybe a tunic. I don’t wear shirts anymore, but pants in this print, or just plain black, would work for me. I can definitely see a woman working in an office wearing this outfit.

  43. Laura
    November 9, 2019 / 5:45 am

    Love it! This look would be perfect for my conservative office. Would love to see it styled with boots or booties, or tights and pumps.

  44. Roxanne
    November 9, 2019 / 5:44 am

    Love the entire outfit! The jacket could be dressed up as shown or look terrific with jeans! Great find, Jennifer!

  45. sheryl
    November 9, 2019 / 5:12 am

    sharp outfit for a working woman. the skirt wouldnt work for me, but love the color, texture of the sweater paired with the jacket…i would chose slacks or jeans to wear with it.

  46. Linda Phelps
    November 9, 2019 / 5:05 am

    I love everything about this outfit. I would probably get more wear out of the jacket and sweater with pants, however.

  47. Mary
    November 9, 2019 / 4:43 am

    The combination of black and blue works for me. I like the simplicity and clean lines of this outfit. I would wear this if the jacket looked like or was real leather. If the faux looks really faux, it can look cheap and I would avoid. I like the blue turtleneck, silver chain necklace and the skirt. All pieces look great together and could work with lots of things I own. Add black opaque tights and booties and I’m out the door. Happy Saturday!

  48. Christina
    November 9, 2019 / 4:37 am

    I would definitely wear this. I love the look.

  49. Patricia
    November 9, 2019 / 4:32 am

    I’m 5’1” so even if petite, I think it is too much for me, stopped tailored skits years ago but still buy summer ones…do like the outfit just not for me.

  50. November 9, 2019 / 4:31 am

    Love it but with a tunic or longer sweater?

  51. Leslie
    November 9, 2019 / 4:18 am

    I really like the jacket. As a matter of fact I have one almost like it! Like Paulette, I would probably wear high boots with the skirt. I love the color of the sweater and definitely would wear it. Overall I like the whole look.

  52. Janis
    November 9, 2019 / 4:16 am

    It’s very stylish. I’m just too short for it. A few inches taller and I would wear it

  53. Linda
    November 9, 2019 / 4:15 am

    Yes, I’d wear this look. I would try to find that color sweater in a mock turtleneck, or a vee neck, but I could make the one shown work. I’d wear it with tall boots, or kitten heeled pumps.

  54. November 9, 2019 / 3:45 am

    Love this outfit! Naturally, trying it on would be a necessary, but yes. This could work on my body type. I might wear this skirt with tall boots, though. Would have to see how it appears. The pop if blue is a nice touch! Actually I have pants in the same pattern as the skirt!

    • Lois Williams
      November 9, 2019 / 9:00 am

      Love it! If I was still at the office each day I would wear tall boots. Now that I’ve retired I’d trade the skirt for slacks, no other changes.
