Jackets are the one thing I will splurge on.
There’s something about throwing one on as that final outfit completer that feels so good. I have a pretty solid assortment of jackets, but I always find myself adding one or two more into the mix every time the colder seasons come back around. My favorite thing to do growing up was to dig through my grandmothers vintage coat collection whenever we made a visit to her house. If I was lucky, she would pass one down to me. Growing up in Florida, you really don’t don a jacket very often, but now that I live up north I actually have a reason to wear one. I’m sad that the summer is coming to an end, but I am excited for jackets to soon be acceptable to wear.
Our jacket shop is giving me the itch to start stocking up. I tend to gravitate towards the styles that make a statement–I’m all about the bright colors, shaggy textures, and fun prints. I wanted to give you all a little preview of some of my favorite ones, and no matter what girl you are – Sandy, Meadow, Lou, Candy or Ginger – a good jacket that makes you feel ready to conquer fall is always necessary.
She loves the beach and the tonal colors of the sand and seashells. A soft textured jacket with a warm plaid print, like the Plaid Bell Sleeve Jacket is perfect for those windy fall days down by the shore.
Candy is sweet, and her styling is soft, subtle and girly. Layering a cozy coat in a classic silhouette, like the Miss Molly Textured Overcoat, over a lacey mini and chunky sweater keeps the styling feminine and delicate in true Candy fashion.
Our Lou girls keep it relaxed, cool and comfortable. A tough leather jacket is a must for her fall wardrobe, and if it has studs, all the better.
Meadow is a free spirit who shows off her bohemian style with layers, dreamy prints, and a kiss of past decades. She’s drawn to pieces with long and drippy silhouettes, and looks for the little added details that are unique. The Great Lengths Lacey Corduroy Jacket is the perfect third-piece, with it’s soft cord material and deep mahogany color giving it a vintage look.
Ginger is always ready for a night out on the town. She keeps her style fitted and a little bit fancy, while still allowing her fun and charming attitude to shine through. She likes to be seen in showstopping pieces that catch the eye, like The Faithful Shaggy Jacket. Worn over a lace dress and dressed up with thigh highs and heels, she’s ready for a night under the stars.
What girl are you?
