I have this Marc Jacobs jacket that I am in love with. Peppermint is pretty much my favourite colour. It's hard to tell what to mix it with though...so it just sits in my closet. Help?? The colour is a bit brighter because my camera is shit, and the zips are pale pink. It's the style that's hard-- kind of '50s/ Grease? I just don't know.
I love this jacket! It's got all the signature Marc by Marc Jacobs details that has made the label so cool over the last ten years. It's a classic shape done up with unusual details like contrast top-stitching and striped rib trim.
Sometimes it's also a good idea to look at the way other people wear similar pieces. In this case I went back to the Marc by Marc archives on Style.com to find your jacket and its cousins going down the runway. Although in the picture they're worn with thick-cuffed jeans, I would stay away from that so as to not look like I'm actually IN a '50s costume.
Thanks for the awesome advice - you're totally right, I was just overthinking it. And thanks for finding the season it's from, I looked for ages but couldn't figure it out. Btw this jacket was like $30 from Melrose Ave in LA... insane. Here's what I wore, kind of using the third photo with the blue jacket... excuse my chronic bitchface. :)
