  1. I'm looking for a spring jacket to wear with jeans and I can't decide if these prints are cute or not? I was thinking about this one from Isabel marant but I don't love this particular print / fit so looking for something else but what do you think of this style? Also if anyone has mod pics, please share! Thanks

  2. Personally I don't like Ikat prints for clothing but that's just me. I think it's a design you get bored with very quickly. And I again personally don't like black & white for spring - I think spring should be fun, all about florals and girly colours. But If you like it, go for it!
     
  3. I like the Ebba jacket you posted and I like the way the way it was styled in the IM Etoile lookbook. I prefer the blue/white to the black/white version - it's not as stark as the black. Personally I like printed coats and jackets but not on high rotation. If I owned this particular jacket I'd wear it for years because it won't date but I wouldn't wear it too often.
     
  4. These are the images from the spring look book I referred to above, just in case you haven't seen them :smile:

  5. Maybe consider doing ikat in a short instead of a jacket? The shorts are really cute!
     
  6. I like the jacket you posted in the blue\white combo.


    I have to say that I am surprised that this trend has lasted as long as it has. I think this is the 4th Spring I have seen it.
     
  7. Thanks for your replies and thanks for posting pictures from the look book! Looks awesome on the model.

    I'm a little worried I'll wear it a few times and get sick of the print (or others might get sick of seeing me in that print! haha) so not sure if I want to invest in the piece or get something in the middle.. It's one of those things I like looking at but not sure if it's for me? I've been doing that a lot lately! Just have a style that I always go for and tough for me to get into new styles and even prints.. So maybe I will take a chance ...
     
  8. I like Ikat/tribal prints. I use them in my style regardless if they are "in" or not. I don't think you should try to like something you don't feel comfortable with. (The IM coat is way too expensive to buy if your not 100% sure about it.) Just my opinion.:flowers:
     
  9. Yeah, i wouldnt get something that I didn't like or I'm not going to wear at all. but I am thinking about getting a jacket in some sort of print to liven up my wardrobe this spring. I feel like I'm in a style rut and everything's starting to look the same so I wanna try something new this season..
