While dark winter coats will always have a place in my heart, bright jackets in my wardrobe can never be replaced. Don’t let the sunshine fool you: the wind this week was almost unbearable but perfect for dusting off those coats and finally taking them out for a spin. A style I have always been drawn to is a double-breasted coat with a little flair. Throwing one on will never fail to dress up a pair of jeans and boots.
The Fashionista this week proved this true by wearing an orange jacket to dress up a normally simple ensemble. Jackets that look expensive but their price tags say otherwise are easy to come by these days. Her jacket was a steal from Forever 21 a few years back, but don’t worry, Forever 21 always has staple pieces each year. A favorite of mine this year is their fleece peacoat in red.
