This is a chic knit suit consisting of a jacket and skirt in blue. The knit is either cotton or a cotton/wool blend and is trimmed with blue leather. The jacket has a rounded neckline with no collar and does up the front with two leather ties, leaving a gap down the front. There is a square applied patch pocket to either lower front side, each trimmed in leather. The opening of the jacket, the waistband of the skirt and the sides of the skirt are all trimmed in leather. The jacket is unlined while the skirt is lined in pale blue acetate.
