What I really find interesting about this picture is the idea of layering sportcoats. Almost like layering your boyfriend’s oversized sportcoat over your fitted one.

    It’s always amazing to see how much a masculine style makes a woman look so feminine. This outfit is a very good idea for inspiration.

    I have an old Harris tweed suit in exactly that herringbone – it looks very much like a vintage men’s jacket – good choice!

    I agree with Sart’s commentary, but it is also reminiscent of wearing a vest/waist coat underneat your jacket. I’ve always liked the double breasted waist coat under the single breasted suit jacket. Part of the interest is that in this case, the waist coat matches the trousers and it is the upper layer that makes the contrast. Very cool look. Full of personality and confidence.

    I like the layering of blazer and overcoat as long as the overcoat is longer, otherwise it looks a little clumsy. To me.
    Great colors together though.

    The layering looks good but I’d wear a larger size outer sport coat.

    It is a very interesting concept! I think sometimes layering in the winter can get boring or sometimes I feel like I’m wearing my same winter coat non-stop. This seems like a great option to switch it up and wear lighter coats while not freezing your butt off!

    This way of layering is just above perfect!
    Layering can be done in so many ways, and if done good, it can give an outfit just that perfect little final touch!

    I love this look – and I love the idea of layering your boyfriend’s coat over your own. Something about this is really androgynous.

    Interesting layering that we have seen lately at Pitti Uomo.
    I find this to be a very creative way of taking your style to the next level.

    What’s unusual about the jacket is that it isn’t necessary but it’s also essential. It fits beautifully too.
