Jacques Vert - Classic British Style Redefined


Most of you already know how much of a big fan  I am of Precis Petite...........


So I was very excited to be invited to the Jacques Vert group  Autumn Winter 16 collection. So this not only featured Precis petite but all the other associated brands such as Dash, Windsmoor and Eastex.
What to wear?
I have a few loved items from Precis Petite. I have loved this brand for over twenty years and I still wear every item I have ever bought. This is one of the things I love about Precis, It's classic well tailored, perfect fit for petites , and always good quality.

So I am wearing my twelve year old pink crepe wide legged trousers. My ode to Precis Petite.

On arrival I was greeted and ushered through to all the gorgeousness that awaits us for the coming winter. I actually went to this event a few weeks ago and was told it would start hitting the shops round about now. So I want all you ladies to have this fresh in your mind. Are you buying your winter wear yet? There was so much in this collection that you could actually wear now and transit into your winter wardrobe later.

Take a look at what's on offer

THE INGENUE COLLECTION


This collection a mix of Jacques Vert and Precis was my favourite. So pleased there's still that gorgeous blush pink available. The satin two piece at the front was stunning, and would look great worn separately too.



I loved the grey coat. Jeff Banks has designed some of the collections this year and this is one of his designs. I like how it can be worn funnel necked or pulled back.

FINISHING LINES


It wouldn't be winter without our classic colours ! Great detailing on this dress


I fell in love with this blouse. This is what I mean about classic tailoring. Just add your up to date accessories. This will stand the test of time in your wardrobe.

MODERN CLASSICIST


         Some lovely berry tones too with floral and lace to add a feminine softness to dark colours


                                   Complete the look with some fab accessories


TOFFEE TONES


         I think this Toffee tone will be a big hit this year. Paired here with Nudes, Blacks and Mocha


    This was another of my favourite pieces. The leather was like butter and the colour makes a nice         change from Black


RHAPSODY IN BLUE


No winter wear would be complete without gorgeous jewel navy tones. The stripe shirt  by Eastex is on my list

BACKSTAGE DRAMA


            Perfect pieces for the party season or a night on the town, extra special glamour


THE ICONS


A very apt introduction to the Jacques Vert group for coats and jackets. If your petite and want a good fitting coat or jacket, this is the place to come.


                                     A perfect evening shoe ! Just the right height !


                        I loved this bag. Different from your Black/Brown I want one !


THE ICONS


                    Leather, Lace and Knitwear . Three textures make a great outfit.




                                            The Classic Mac and Collarless coat


It really was a fabulous day, got spoilt with drinks and canapes and it was good to meet the girls from the Jacques Vert Group who were very helpful answering my questions. But that's not all....


I was gifted with this lovely wrap. There were special machinist there to add whatever initials you wanted to the wrap. I had V - A- M  Such a lovely keepsake. It almost makes me look forward to winter to wear it! Do take a look at the JACQUES VERT  brand. it really is worth a look
