Fashion Top Five: Light Transition-Weather Jackets
August 13, 2008
Whether you’re trying to extend some of those beloved summer pieces or gearing up for cool-weather layering (I can wear all my scarves again! No joke, I am counting down the days), light jackets make getting dressed much easier come fall.
Carry this Flounced Sleeve Burlap Jacket ($146) for protection against overbearing AC now; for fall, take advantage of the wide sleeves and create a slimming contrast with a long-sleeved turtleneck underneath.
The combo of sharp shape and movable fabric make this Mini Trench Jacket ($260) so easy to wear – plus, it’s made of organic cotton.
The way they have it styled here is a little washed-out hippie, but we think this Half-Snap Jacket ($58) from the Gap would look casually smart over a slim black tank and straight-leg pants.
The shape of this Lux blazer ($68) is relaxed and flattering, with cropped sleeves and a button at the waist.
There’s nothing easier or more versatile than this Theory jacket ($295) for a sophisticated extra layer.
