Would You Wear It Wednesday: Short Pant, Short Jacket

Yes…it is Wednesday…and I have so enjoyed reading your thoughts each week on the featured outfit. There were lots of different reactions last week!  
This week tell us:
1. What do you think of the pants…stripe, length, width etc.
2.  What do you think of the short jacket?
3.  How do you feel about the pattern mixing?
I can’t wait to hear!  Thanks so much for participating!   
Happy Wednesday all!!


  1. I would not wear it. I do like slimmer pants for sure, and the stripe is fine. I might wear them, but not with the jacket. The jacket is too short for me. Pattern mixing is fine, that's not the issue here. I would wear the pants and shirt without the jacket, maybe with a scarf or long necklace. The outfit looks fine, just not for me! Karen

  2. The jacket is nice, I eould wear it. The trousers… No way. Skinny trousers might look nice on tall, slender girls (as in: pretty young things), but big-hipped, short middle-aged women like me would just look like a clueless fashion victim….

  3. I have yet to try short jackets–not sure they'd be flattering on me. I'm fine with short pants, but not sure that super tight look would work on my overweight body!

  4. love the pants and pattern mixing. not excited about the jacket itself style wise… prefer slim fitting stuff. Outfit overall seems a bit too contrived. Look forward to seeing more ideas!

  5. I love this outfit. I think is chic and trendy. The shirt is too sheer for me, but I like the style and length of it. I would wear it with a more opaque shirt.

  6. I think it's cute! Not sure I could pull the look off, but my teen likes to mix patterns, and it looks good on her. 🙂

  7. I love pattern mixing, and have been trying to incorporate more of it in my outfits. I love the pants, but I'm not sure the jacket would look good on me.

  8. I love everything about this outfit except the leather trim on the jacket. Short, tight leather jackets are "in" right now, I'd rather wear a leather jacket than this.

  9. First of all thank you for hosting another week of your fabulous link up! Every time I come here I get sooo hungry because of all the yummy ideas here! This outfit? I love it. The striped pants are very subdued didn't even notice at first. Have a great weekend Pam! xo Sabina @Oceanblue Style

  10. I love everything about the outfit. It is perfect for a mannequin or a very tall & slim 40 yr old. Not for me anymore, I would have been all about it 15 yrs ago.

  11. Skin tight, pinstripe jeans were "in" when I was 12. I know because I drew a mannequin wearing them. Yup, I liked to design outfits even then. That said, at 44, I find them too "tricked out" to be timeless. The jacket and the jeans are too decorated and therefore too "gimmicky" for my taste. The short pants would look bad on my short, curvy figure, but I think the length could look elegant on a taller, slim woman of any age. Despite all my criticisms, I would and do wear toned down variations on this look: skinny jeans, longer blouse, moto jacket. It's all about finding the variations on looks that work for you.
