For Aida: Tweed jacket w/white & silver + jacket lab

Aida asked me to do an outfit with the same jacket I did with dark jeans only with white and silver or gold.
I went with silver because of silver toned zipper detail on the red jacket. White dog graphic tee for white theme. (Photo 1) What do you think? (2/3)
I also tried some other jackets. White tweed jacket (4/5), silver metallic jacket (6/7), and long black jacket (8/9). What do you like, not like? I'd love to have your suggestions and preferences. Is low or high contrast better?

    Oh, my goodness, I always enjoy your posts! You have an enviable closet, and put together such great looks.

    I like all of your combos, but the low contrast pairings in 4-7 are my favorites. I can't honestly say if they objectively suit you better, or if this just reflects my own personal admiration for a well-put together low- contrast outfit.

    Fab! Hard to choose a favorite, but I love how, you put together interesting low contrast outfits in #4-5 white tweed and #6-7 silver metallic. The graphic dog t-shirt is superb!

    What a cool top! I like it with the silver jacket best. YLF!

    I like it with the silver and red jackets best. Looks amazing! Your tee reminds me a bit of LisaP's new scarf and leggings, in that the pattern gives the impression of marble at first glance.

  • Emily K replied 1 year ago

    I really like your tee!  I've been shopping for a graphic tee--it's surprisingly hard to find something that accomplished my style goals and advertises a point-of-view that I'd want to share.

  • Mirjana replied 1 year ago

    I am impressed with your closet. All outfits are fabulous. The graphic tee are superb. I like the best outfit with white tweed jacket and silver. Enjoy your lovely outfits stylish lady, you always inspired me thanks Joy.

    I like this very much! It's the colors, textures and details that make this so good to me. Love the white, silver, necklace, shoes. I probably like it with the shorter jackets best.

  • approprio replied 1 year ago

    Excellent shirt!

    I like them all, it's hard to pick a favourite. I think I like it most with a simpler jacket. The print seems more impactful like that.

  • Greyscale replied 1 year ago

    These are all great but I absolutely love the outfit with the silver jacket.

  • Aida replied 1 year ago

    Woohoooo! SO fabulous :D The silver looks wonderful with the wine shade, a little more unexpected than gold somehow. I like both lighter jackets with this look, especially the silver one, but find the black a little heavy (could just be the photos though). Thanks for indulging me ^^

    PS Joy. Seriously. You find the best graphic tees!!

  • Dianna replied 1 year ago

    As always, I love all your outfits.  It's so hard to choose just one favorite, but I think I will go with the silver jacket, but it's a close race between the four outfits.  Your outfits are always the perfect mix between trendy and classic.  Loved everything separately, but even more how you put it together.  I am going to use your outfit as an inspiration.

    I like the white and silver jacket best by far. Best proportions, and super cute as always, darling Ruth. 

  • Suz replied 1 year ago

    That tee is fantastic!! Wow!  Did I miss the post where you said where it comes from? LOVE it on you. 

    All these outfits are fantastic but I like 4-7 (white and silver jackets) the most. The proportions are spot on and you look incredibly glamorous and alive. 

  • Joy replied 1 year ago

    Dear ladies, thank you each so much for looking and commenting.
    The tee was thrifted some time ago and I had to have it because the dog looks like our Maggs. I am very picky about graphic tees and only have about 5 of them. It seems that the white and silver jackets are the most favored. I wore the outfit as shown with the silver jacket today to run errands.
    Dianna, I love being a blend of classic and trendy. That is a style goal, to update classics with a bit of trendy so that it is a bit playful and not stuffy.
    Aida, thank you for the idea of using white.
    Mirjana, I have a weakness for jackets, so have several. I prefer them to cardigans most of the time.

  • shevia replied 1 year ago

    Great tee! I like what Suz said about 4-7 - they are my favorites too!

  • Jenni NZ replied 1 year ago

    Bit late Joy but had already decided I liked white jacket and silver jacket best before reading other comments. I think the black one is both too stark and too long. All the cropped ones are better proportions. Those white jeans look great the way you roll them!

  • anchie replied 1 year ago

    Another vote for white and silver jackets as favorites.

  • Joy replied 1 year ago

    Thank you, Jenni and Anchie. I got the idea for rolling the jeans from Aida. I have a pair of white jeans with big cuffs but they were in the laundry.
    I'm glad the white jacket is a hit. It can be a bit dressy, so it is good to find a way to wear it casually.

    You look great in all the pictures. My favourites are the ones with the white and the silver grey jackets. And what a fab graphic T-shirt! I like the big pearl too, but personally I would prefer it to be either a little shorter or a little longer, to avoid conflict with the upper line of the T-shirt.

  • Joy replied 1 year ago

    Thank you, Cat. I agree and usually have the big Pearl on s longer chain but just grabbed it as it was when I wore it last. You have a good eye.

  • Style Fan replied 1 year ago

    Wow Joy!  I love the graphic tee.  All your looks are winners but my favourite is the one with the silver jacket.  Everything works so well together.

  • Adela replied 1 year ago

    This graphic tee wins! It's so beautiful! I love how you styled it and I'm afraid that I may have to copy some of your ideas :-).

  • Joy replied 1 year ago

    Thank you, Style Fan. I've never tried that silver jacket with a graphic tee before and the result was fun.
    Adela, thank you for the kind words. I would be honored if you copied anything I do.

  • lpr200 replied 1 year ago

    I love how you transformed each look!

  • tulle replied 1 year ago

    Gorgeous as always, Joy.  I love that tee with the silver jacket!  It occurs to me that white and silver is one combination that women over 50 often wear more successfully than most younger women.  Nice for those of us with graying hair to find this new source of glamour.

  • Beth Ann replied 1 year ago

    So yummy!  I also love the cool silver version -- I hope you wear loves of white/grey/silver combinations this summer!

  • Joy replied 1 year ago

    Thank you, lpr200, tulle and Beth Ann for the lovely comments and thoughts. Tulle, you are right. Whites and silver with gray hair is definitely more flattering than when I was younger with dark auburn hair. I can also wear black more successfully. I fine optic white the most unexpected and youthful on older women, especially as white jeans or a crisp shirt with popped collar. Ivory is more of a cliche so I try to avoid it or mix it with other whites. But my favorite white is slightly grey or pearl. If someone came up with a pearlized white for hair, ( or oil slick in whites) I would go for it.
    Beth Ann, I have worked to add more white and silver but my summer wardrobe could use more casual pieces.

    What gorgeous looks (all of them) - I particularly love the silver jacket on you! Well done Aida for inspiring these.
