I have constantly expressed my aversion to wearing jackets. They always felt constricting and covered up my outfit underneath. I had no problem handling a little cold weather when my outfit rocked. Funny how things can change, right?
Now I can’t seem to stop myself from buying jackets. They may be more fashionable than functional, but it is a step in the right direction. Jackets are my current obsession and have been the “it” item of my favorite outfits lately.
The many different styles available is what makes picking a jacket so fun. Some days you feels edgy and that is when a moto style comes in. Then there are times you want to appear feminine and a fun (faux) fur coat is just what the doctor ordered. The days when you want to be decked out in athleisure? The perfect time to rock a bomber!
There is a jacket out there for every mood. They have the power to transform an outfit instantaneously. When you want to run out the door and put minimal thought into your look, throwing on an epic jacket will do all the work for you. Notice how I am wearing the same jeans in EVERY picture? An awesome outerwear piece will let you get away with that!
Jackets make you look pulled together and hold everything in place. Strive to find one that fits close to the body, added bulk is something nobody needs. Making sure it fits correctly in the shoulder is also key. That is the biggest give away that an item is ill-fitting. I have short arms so I fully understand how difficult it can be to find a jacket that doesn’t engulf you. While fit is everything, if you are in a pinch and need to make a jacket fit better in a flash, cuff the sleeve under as oppose to over! Works like a charm.
It has been all about outerwear for me lately! I cannot stop wearing this look even with warmer weather on the horizon. Do you have a tried and true jacket? Let me know down below!
