Whenever people ask for fashion advice, I have one go-to that never fails: invest in a few nice jackets. They’re so easy to layer over tees {I love James Perse for tees, and also J.Crew’s vintage v-necks} and throw them with skirts, jeans, or dresses. I cannot stress enough how much a nicely tailored jacket can transform your look. I’m a bit of a jacket hoarder, I feel like jackets for me are a bit like what shoes or purses are to most women — I love having a collection! I’ve built my collection over time but I think every wardrobe needs a nice leather, tweed, and wildcard {a fun color or print!} jacket. 
A few favorites:
Leather | Of course this Burberry number is to die for, but for something a little more wallet friendly, try this Topshop one or this from Asos. Muubaa makes amazing jackets and I’m also loving the drapey style: I love this one and this one.
Tweed | Obsessed with the shape of this jacket and this one under $100. If you’re more classic you can’t go wrong with a Chanel lookalike, right? Loving the idea of a more colorful one {like in the second picture above} and this Milly number and this J.Crew option are pretty perfect.
Wildcard | A fun print, a gorgeous forest green {under $100}, camo, tri-color {love!}, leather bow, and this navy one is just my favorite ever.

  1. I love all three of those outfits! I like how every outfit is kind of grungy and cool, and then the tailored jacket adds that perfect juxtaposition. I have a few great go-to’s but now I think I need some more! I always think J. Crew and Rebecca Taylor have great options.
