Wrapped Denim Jacket: Whiteout

I have a poncho in shades of cream and white and white denim so decided to try a white version of Angie's wrapped denim ensemble. Does this work? Suggestions for improvement?
After taking the photos I did add white pearl earrings and necklace. The necklace just perks out from under the jacket collar a little bit.

    It totally works. I love the texture on that poncho, and think it adds a lot to the formula. Well done!

  • harmonica replied 1 year ago

    Stunning, Joy! Love how the whites and different textures work together and with your hair.

  • Joy replied 1 year ago

    Thank you all for your kind comments. Murph and Bonnie, I would love to meet for lunch! Jenn and harmonica, the texture of the poncho is very soft. I felt someone sitting behind me this morning touch it and completely understood.

  • Laura1975 replied 1 year ago

    That looks amazing Joy! I would love to be "beamed up" for lunch too please.

    I give it 12/10.

  • madeline replied 1 year ago

    So pretty!

  • Greyscale replied 1 year ago

    I really love this idea. Well done. It's interesting to see how the same formula can range from minimalist to boho in everyone's different implementations.

  • Joy replied 1 year ago

    Karen, that is lovely, thank you.
    Jenni, consider yourself beamed :)

  • Joy replied 1 year ago

    Thank you, Lisa, Madeline and Greyscale. Is is so interesting to see different interpretations of the same basic ensemble. I have seen ideas on others that I want to try.

    Ah let's all have a virtual lunch. I'm game if you are. Joy you and your wadrobe are a wonder. I have loved also everthing you wear. You and a few others must have magical wadrobes and while nowhere near my style aesthetic. I love what you all wear.

    I hope you never stop contributing to ylf because for lack of a better word you bring joy to the forum.

    Now this fit is just elegant to me. There is such a sophisticated elegance to this. The texture the white or light fit. Your beautiful hair l it just works. Without saying i tried really hard to put this fit togther.

  • Joy replied 1 year ago

    Ledonna, you might like to know that nearly every outfit I wear has at least one, usually more, pieces that have been thrifted. For this outfit it was the silk shell under the denim jacket and the denim jacket ( American Eagle brand). The poncho was a given to me by my niece who also is a regular thrifter, so it may have been from the Good Will. Yes, we need a lunch meet up. You are a gorgeous woman with a fabulous heart. I'm thrilled that you approve of this outfit and find it has some elegance, which is my dream goal.

  • Ledonna N. replied 1 year ago

    Awe that is great to know Joy. That poncho is life giving. To me your dream is realized.

  • shevia replied 1 year ago

    Wow! You are on a super roll.

  • Elizabeth P replied 1 year ago

    Joy, this is lovely! What a clever interpretation.

  • minimalist replied 1 year ago

    Joy, this is delightful! Love the light rendition.

  • Joy replied 1 year ago

    Thank you, Ledonna, Shevia, Elizabeth and minimalist for your kind comments. It is fun to see what inspiration will inspire. Today I wrapped a plaid blazer. There is a tweed jacket calling to be part of a wrapped outfit too.

  • Lisa replied 1 year ago

    Sorry I am out of ideas, because there is nothing to improve here, this outfit is a lovely white out look.  Great texture with that poncho.

  • Isabel replied 1 year ago

    LOVE,LOVE, LOVE !  you really do white out well btw.

  • Eliza replied 1 year ago

    Great look! You wear those colors and textures beautifully. Love it from head to toe.

  • Joy replied 1 year ago

    Thank you! I plan to repeat this outfit as it is the right weight for a cool spring day.

  • Bijou replied 1 year ago

    So beautiful - you look stunning in white and I hope you have Angie's super power of staying clean. I also love white, but with a dog and child (and some clumsiness  on my part) - I often do not stay pristine for an entire day. I always hope that paw prints on white jeans is charming, because it is a look that I often wear.

  • KCourtney replied 1 year ago

    I just left a comment on your wrapped blazer post but my-oh-my I LOVE this even more. You look stunning. I have always been a fan of mono color schemes and this is just perfect!! I admire all your "looks" Joy and we share a love of thrifting. Who knew it was so much fun! I also wish we could thrift and lunch together! BTW....what brand are your booties?

  • Runcarla replied 1 year ago

    This is absolutely wonderful, Joy. Your elegant self, with a certain laid-back Colorado vibe!

  • Andrea H replied 1 year ago

    I love this (non)color scheme so much! That is a lovely poncho.

  • Angie replied 1 year ago


  • Joy replied 1 year ago

    Bijou, I don't know about the super power of staying clean, but I can usually manage it. We have a black and white dog that is mostly white and that I will not allow to jump on me. I change before cooking or other messy work and wear an apron.
    KCourtney, you are a sweetheart. I would love a thrifting and lunch partner! The booties are Sam Edleman Petty in bone suede. I got these online from Nordsrtom last year. They are my usual size and very comfortable.
    Runcarla, your words hit exactly what I want to portray....elegance with a laid back Colorado vibe! Thank you.
    Andrea, thank you. Sometimes non-colors seem right and can get just as much attention.
    Angie, a Killer! I am thrilled and inspired to work harder.
