Light jackets have been on my mind this week, since the mornings feel like the 1st of March rather than early May.
If you feel me on the weather, you’ll appreciate the lineup of lightweight luxe you can throw on and be out in. Winter is for cuddling up in chunky sweaters whereas Spring is when we warm up with lighter layers like denim, dusters & bomber options. Sleeves are low key one of my signatures – I’m always cold & always on the search for signature pieces. I’m currently on the hunt for the perfect military jacket, which got me thinking about my favorite Spring styles. Thus resulting in the following haute list of jacket styles to shop this season.
The biker jacket silhouette is fierce & unforgettable, try a faux leather option or alternative fabric ,like suede. I’d opt for one in a neutral color so I could rock it with a handful of pieces but do you Sis. Pair with something simple like a tee or camisole on top denim below and a bold lip to sexy it up. Let your feet speak with your shoe choice.
Always a win when worn with trousers, dresses or skirts. Try different textures that don’t add bulk to the body for your Spring and early summer looks. Authenticate your jacket with simple D.I.Y’s like adding cute patches & buttons, dying or spray painting.
These jackets are kinda like my jam right now. They literally look cute with everything while feeling like a chill ass track jacket. Pencil skirts, denim & trousers all look official with the right type bomber. Shiny finishes look chic, prints are fun, – there is literally an option for everyone. Pretty much any look you can think of with the addition of a bomber, is going to be cute.
Light weight long dusters,also referred to as spring trenches, are ideal for all occasions” Boss Lady”.Choose one in a color you wish to make your signature and own that shit. I love to pair this piece with a chic tee and straight leg trouser pant. Add accessories and slay.
Military jackets matter to the women that are a little rough around the edges. *Raises hand* Our auras command attention as does our style. Just like denim, you are encouraged to do your own thing & personalize in a manner that falls in line with your fly. Camo print is enriched when the garment is fitted, in proportion and paired with the right neutral color palette.
Philly is looking breezy for the rest of the week, please believe I will be tucked in one of the above until warmer temps return. I advise you do the same. Spring layering is simple when you can throw on a statement piece like the above. Keep this process underwhelming and start with Asos. . ready . . set. . . go get your life Queen.
