Video: Inspiration Behind The FP Jacket Collection

Come fall, we here at Free People get so excited to start layering up and to finish off each look with an awesome jacket. The Jacket Shop on our site is an incredible collection from cool military and leather styles to softer, cozier wool pieces. It might just be our best yet. Watch the video below, as one of our designers shares her inspiration and gives us a look at what it’s like to design a jacket (the amazing Crafted Cloth Tapestry Jacket) for Free People. Read More

Summer Essential: The Lightweight Jacket!

A summer jacket is a must for those days when there’s a little breeze. A lightweight jacket that’s fun, summery and cool enough to throw on top of your tank tops and pretty dresses. We love summer jackets that have prints, embroidery and cool details on them. They make an outfit come alive and don’t shy away from the fun wardrobe that summer is known for.

Braving the Elements

Sometimes, as winter blankets our surroundings with its bitter chill, it’s tough to stay fashionably motivated. Rising out of bed in the morning involves a laborious upheaval from an all-too-comfortable toasty nest. The last thing you want to do is spend time, half-naked in a drafty bedroom, pulling an outfit together. It tends to turn into, “grab the first items in your drawer, and pile them on as fast as you can.”

To dress well as the air gets chillier though, we’ve come to realize that the under layer becomes less important. To pull off a great look that won’t leave you freezing, it’s all about that top winter layer. Here, some of the Free People girls show us how to move into the new season while keeping it fresh with a few of our favorite jackets. They remind us that a good scarf and hat can go a long way to trap in heat, and, don’t forget, the season’s must-have item – a pair of killer close-toed boots. All of these things – jacket, boots, and winter accessories – will help you bring those easy under layers into the new season.

So chill and relaxed! Our sweater designer is wearing: The Vintage Wine Leather Jacket, Pink Floyd Tee, Joan of Arctic Boot, Loop Knit Beanie, Crystal Honeycomb Bib necklace, and her own pants.

Office Style

We’re layering up to brace the elements here in Philly today. It’s one of the coolest days we’ve had yet this fall and boy is that wind slap-in-the-face cold. There’s no doubt we have tights on underneath our shorts, and those jackets are no longer an option, but a necessity. Of course, that doesn’t stop the lovely Free People ladies from throwing on an ace outfit. Check out how we’re doing it today…

This is the very first vintage dress she ever bought, and now she has a whole closet full. I love pieces with great stories like this.

There’s a cool factor to leather jackets that nothing else quit seems to pull off.
