1940s Chartreuse Tweed Wool Jacket Top with Brown Velvet Edging, 37in Bust
Not sure what to wear in the winter when you want to be warm without the layers. This little 1940s wool top is the answer! Made from a lovely chartreuse herringbone tweed, it could be worn as a top or a jacket. Fitted enough to perfectly compliment a pair of loose swing trousers or a flared skirt, or even be worn under a pinafore style dress. The brown velvet trim details compliment the lime perfectly and adds a slight country or Austrian vibe, which is great for this time of year, so why not add some suede and leather accessories to finish off the look?
