Leopard collar Hedren jacket from J. Crew

Hedren_jacket

Cardigans are a must have staple of any 50s inspired look, be it rockabilly, cheesecake or pin-up. This J. Crew jacket style cardi is one of the best modern interpretations I’ve seen from a mainstream fashion store. It’s only fitting, then, that it seems to be named for a great starlet of the time, Ms. Tippy Hedren.

The leopard collar is, of course, the statement making element of this piece, but the quality also meets the looks. Made in a Milano-knit merino wool it’s a lasting piece of Italian craftsmanship.

  • I recently saw this jacket at my local store and while I loved it, I thought that it was a little short on the body. The fit was more similar to a cardigan than to a jacket.
