Tuesday's Work Appropriate Clothing Item: Pinstripe Jacket

Just like yesterday's suit, only reversed. This Lauren by Ralph Lauren "Henriet Pinstripe Jacket" is made from linen and lined with acetate. I like the three button front closure, the pockets at the hips, and, best of all, the menswear inspired welt-pocket at the left chest. And, of course, the pinstripes are key. It is $250; available exclusively via Bloomingdales here.

Lauren by Ralph Lauren makes matching pinstripe pants, also available exclusively via Bloomingdales. However, I find the white with the black pinstripes a bit too much as an entire suit; I think the jacket would look much better with basic black trousers or a black skirt, as pictured. But, if you're interested, the pants are $159; here.
