Mint green pleated collar spring jacket

Mint green pleated collar spring jacket

This 70’s mint green jacket comes with incredible style. The shawl collar is pleated around the neckline, and the sleeves have a soft A-line shape, creating a unique aesthetic balance in the design of the jacket. The back of the sleeves are buttoned (see picture below) in a very original elevated cuff. There are two belt loops on the side of the jacket that can accommodate a 1″3/4 (4.5cm) belt, but in my opinion the jacket doesn’t call for a belt, which would only clash with the placement of the buttons. The material is a knit cotton fiber, fully lined. It is ideal for spring time.

Estimated size: S
Material: Cotton knit, Lining
No label

Neck:  5″ – 13cm
Shoulders:  14″1/2  –  37cm
