Every week Queens editor Lena Weber highlights one amazing vintage item that has caught her eye. This week she has found an Edwardian jacket that adds an interesting twist to the current cropped top trend.

What:Edwardian jacket made of the darkest black silk taffeta. The jacket has a nipped-in waist and a hand-stitched, ivory satin collar.

Designer: Unknown. Handmade ca 1890s.

How much: Buy it for $78.00 from 13bees

Why: Lena says “Eighties-influenced cropped jackets are everywhere on the highstreet at the moment. Instead of going for an off-the-peg number, choose a vintage or antique option such as this Edwardian one. It’ll add instant structure and cool to a pair of high-waisted jeans or wear over a simple jersey dress.”
