Just when I thought I’d be all prepared with a new collection of spring jackets, the dam season barely even came for us on the east coast. That’s ok though, they’ll be good for some cooler summer days. Outerwear is key for me. I love stocking up on these pieces because sometimes it’s all you need to make an outfit. Find a really interesting one and it’s a conversation starter.
Today I’m sharing some purchases (they already have a home in my closet) that I can’t wait to style for spring and summer.
Most of the ones I got are sold out except for the grey faux leather jacket. But, I found great alternatives for you guys! Even though I’m petite (apparently 4’11 ½ – I’ll share that story another time) long jackets and dusters are my jam. Maybe it’s because they cover my a**, I don’t know, but I think they’re super chic. So a longline denim jacket and bomber (<– this one is sick!) were on my shopping list. To switch up the traditional bomber, go for one with a different fabric like satin, velvet or crushed velvet. It’s all in the details so look for patches, embroidery, or zippers.
If you read my post awhile back about the 10 items every women needs in her closet, then you know how necessary a classic trench coat is. First of all, it’ll spruce up any casual look and it’s the most stylish option for office style. And must I explain the reasons why a faux leather jacket is a must? I’ve only ever had black ones and when I saw this grey one, it was MINE! Also on my list is a yellow one ♥.
