This summer I bought a smashing jacket on sale. It's a pink, beautifully lined swing style that looks great with black pants. The pink is not pastel, but more of a year-round hot pink. But the buttons are white and oversized -- and look rather summery.
I'm not yet ready to pack away that jacket, so I had an idea: Why not change the buttons to black? It certainly would enable me to get a couple more months of wear out of it .(Changing buttons to something more seasonal is, in fact, my fashion tip in this Sunday's Current column in the Spotlight section).
I think it would look great with a black, ribbed turtleneck. And, of course, black pants.
Any other ideas for taking a summery item into fall?
