OUTFIT // DKNY tweed jacket

(Jacket: DKNY. Skirt: Asos. Boots: Tusk. Tank top: Acne. Bag: Givenchy)

This jacket is one of those pieces that gets all sorts of compliments from friends, strangers, grandmas, dogs..... That never happens to me. People usually don't say much about what I wear because I guess they're usually thinking something like, "Why does she want the crotch of her pants to hang around her knees?" when they see me in my boyfriend jeans. But for some reason, I've had girls follow me through a pub, out of a shop and into a toilet cubicle to ask me where this jacket is from. Don't get me wrong, I like the jacket (or I wouldn't have bought it) and I really really really appreciate the compliments (except for the girl following me into the cubicle, she probably should have stopped at the door or waited for me to finish, but hey I don't mind), I just don't know why this particular jacket gets all the attention. There are other things in my wardrobe that I'm more in love with.

Do you own something that always receives compliments when you wear it... and you don't quite get why it gets so much attention?

  3. That jacket is so nice. I can see why people compliment it.
    My coat seems to get praised from time to time and, as nice as it is, I always think my outfit underneath it is nicer!

  4. Well, there is certainly no denying that your jacket is a gorgeous piece and I love this look! I totally understand what you're saying and I don't always get it either but I think at least they are being nice, I guess :)

    Take care,

  5. This jacket is really lovely! And I think you can ... how can I say, it can be wear by many type of girls you know, it's feminine yet not super girly, and it has a clean cut so that's why many people ask you about it! It's a kind of timeless piece I would say!
    And ... same for me and boyfriend jeans ... especially love to wear them when I meet up my dad ... he's like you should have pick up something classier! Pure provocation daddy haha

  6. Nobody has followed me into the cubicle (at least yet) but there are compliments I don't get.:) But your jacket is really cool, babe, no doubt you're being harassed.:D

  7. Let me get this out of the way first up, love your jacket! Anything slightly tweed like and I'm hooked. But if I ran into you, I'd be more wrapped in that Givenchy goodness! What a stunner!

    There are a couple of pieces in my wardrobe that constantly get compliments, and it's often the ones I've had for years that get the most praise. I tend to think it's because I'm at my most comfortable wearing my old favourites and it probably shows.

  13. Great post! I love the jacket, but I'm more jealous of that amazing little Givenchy bag hanging around your waist!

    I have the same with a pair of silver dr. martens shoes I own, grannies love them! And I do have the occasional pair of ridiculous heels which everyone loves. I get it though, I love them too!

  21. Hah! Well the jacket is a stunner! It's always the more intricately constructed pieces that get the looks and attention. I don't think I've ever seen a tweed jacket like that. Actually didn't look like BCBG piece at first. I have one skirt that I get a million compliments on, and it's an old midi from H&M. Go figure.

  23. it is really quite chic, i can understand her following you, though maybe not so far! i have a few similar jackets that also get a lot of compliments. maybe it's because it's such a chic, classic look?

  26. I always get compliments on items I'm not completely in-love with as well - I'd prefer to get compliments on my oversized sweaters! Hahaha. And (in regards to your comment), my boyfriend does as well, which is half the reason we have Indi (to keep me company and keep me warm!). Next week cannot come quick enough, and I'm sure you know exactly what I'm talking about. <3 xx

  27. Totally agree, its usually something that isn't my favourite thing that I get compliments on. x
