Susan Graver Quilted Snap Front Jacket
Hello Elegant and Lovely readers,
I recently was gifted a Susan Graver Quilted Peachskin Snap Front Jacket in the color of my choice. The colors where antique white/ black trim, black/ light khaki trim, and navy/scarlet red trim. I choose the white because it is so fresh. When I opened the package, the jacket looked sharp and reminded me of a jacket that is very reminiscent of something that Jacqueline Kennedy or Audrey Hepburn would have worn. I began contemplating how I would style it. There are no more rules anymore when it comes to white. The color can be worn all year long. I chose white because it is refreshing and makes me smile all year long.
For church I styled the quilted jacket with a Jones New York metal matte sequin tank that I purchased last year for a good deal. The outfit just clicked. The metallic with the quilting of the jacket gives it a rock edge. So cool!

To have simplicity with an edge is sheer genius in an outfit. You appear youthful without looking immature. I loved styling the jacket with the tank and color contrast of the red pumps. The necklace over the metal sequin tank was not overpowering and added depth in a good way.
It was a cold snowy day when I took this picture below. I could not resist getting a picture in the park along this bridge. I took my coat off to take the picture and the jacket looked really good. The construction of the quilted jacket is structured but relaxed. Black trim is along the edges of the jacket, pockets and sleeve trim. It is put together well. White brightens your complexion and I feel it makes me look even more youthful than I already am. The size I requested in the jacket was a Small; which is giving me a looser fit. I think if I sized down to an Extra Extra Small, it would be more of a fitted look. The small is a 42 1/2 in the chest and the XXS is a 381/2 in the chest. By getting the small, the jacket could be an outer jacket also for me.
I wore the jacket to work. I was getting compliments right and left; so I knew this was a winner. Now this was a snowy cold day; but again this jacket could also be an outer jacket in the spring.
With the Susan Graver jacket, I am wearing my Lamo boots and Dooney and Bourke handbag. The outfit has been elevated to another level.
I have the same teal turquoise turtleneck, with the Susan Graver jacket that I wore to work and paired it with dark denim jeans and high heel ankle boots. This look could be for a night out with my hubby or I could wear this to church.
This Susan Graver jacket has such a cool look; but is not overdone. It rocks. It sets the stage and the actors and actresses are my gold jeweled boots and turquoise bracelets. To have an outfit that flows well gives a feeling of confidence and great satisfaction.
I had so much fun styling this jacket.

The quilted jacket is so versatile whether I wore it with jeans or trousers.
Thank you to Susan Graver and her team for the opportunity to style such a well made jacket.
Stay tuned when I style the Susan Graver Quilted jacket with a skirt.
