Fall Styling Inspiration: Jackets

We’re nearing the end of summer, and while it may still be 80 degrees outside, we can’t help but get excited for fall dressing – especially with the launch of our jacket shop online this week. While the true purpose of jackets is to keep us warm in chilly weather, we also love to use them as a way to finish off a look. Instead of just throwing any jacket over an outfit, it’s fun to build an entire outfit off of the jacket you’ll be wearing on a particular day.

An easy way to do this is to think about the color palette. If you’re wearing a rusty-colored jacket like the Oversized Parka (coming soon!), create an outfit using warm colors and neutrals. Here we layered a plaid maxi over a lace mini dress, added thigh highs, and topped it all off with a beanie.

If your jacket is a stone-like brown like the Fringe Leather Jacket, you could go the darker route and use cooler hues like dark gray and purple. We paired a graphic tank over a mini skirt and, again, added some thigh highs for interest.

Another way to do it is to make your outfit all about the jacket. If you have a jacket with beautiful embellishment like the Golden Quills Military Parka, you can make it shine by keeping the rest of your outfit simple. Here we used a simple but gorgeous black maxi dress and added an extra touch of shine in the belt, boots, and necklace.
