Jackets, The Long and the Short of It

Jackets are one of my favorite pieces of clothing to put on. They come long. They come short. You just need to determine what style is right for you. They really can transform an outfit from dull and boring to fun and fashionable . You can throw it on over a t shirt and a pair of jeans and look tres chic. I love jackets that have anything interesting on them from a little gathering on the shoulders to ruffles on the bottom. I also think that a double breasted jacket looks great. Love the button detail. Patterns like a madras plaid or a floral design is nice for this time of year. Jackets make getting dressed really easy too. If you have a variety of jacket styles in your wardrobe, the same pants or skirts that you tend to wear over and over take on a whole different look with the jacket that you choose. Also, don't be afraid to try a skinny belt around the jacket, especially if it's a longer style. Jackets, however, tend to be a bigger investment though. They can be a little pricey depending on the workmanship and name brand. This is why I often check my local Goodwill, Salvation Army, or resale shops before I go wild on spending lots of money. I have been able to find great stylish jackets for only $5 at Goodwill! It seems funny that these are the jackets that I get the most compliments on!
