This first jacket is just a little too. . . neat. I would like it so much more if it were distressed. And I'm not a fan of jackets that don't actually close in the middle--my middle gets cold! But still--potential. Because this jacket is so tailored and neat, I think it would be best paired with things with rougher texture and more grungy style--like a dark grey wool above-the-knee peplum skirt, distressed lace tights, tough leather boots with brass buckles.
This jacket is not real leather, so I would not purchase it myself. But for those who prefer "vegan leather" or don't mind the look/feel of synthetics--some very interesting visual elements going on here that could work really well with Real World Steampunk. This jacket I would pair with an aviator look--can you see it?
This jacket appears, from the description, to be navy. Of course black or grey would be ideal--but then again, navy looks fabulous with khaki and tan, those Steampunk staples. None of these are all that Neo-Victorian--but they have hints and are playful and I guess my eyes enjoy seeing something a little different, and my mind can see how these pieces could be really fun to work into a RWS wardrobe. This coat would look good over a long, full skirt--I mean period long and full, with a high-collared, darted-front blouse underneath. And a jaunty little hat!
Zulily also has some boots I have blogged about previously!
And the same in brown--even more lovely!
And right now there is still even a good size selection--sooooo tempting.
