Summer is quickly fading away and the degrees are decreasing by early afternoon. Suddenly, it's getting a little chilly after 4 pm and by 7, all I want to do is crawl into a chunky knit and some cashmere socks. Not quite coat season yet but I need a little something extra when heading out. My favorite transitional piece is a good jean jacket. So easy to throw on over any basics. I like to roll up the sleeves and pop a little collar and suddenly I feel like John Lennon in the mid 70's, ya know...awesome.
What's great about a jean jacket is that like jeans, they come in tons of washes and styles. You can get yours faded, distressed, cropped, over-sized - you name it. I'm obsessed with my boyfriend fit jean jacket lately. It's perfectly over-sized and in a light wash that goes great with black skinnies. If you can't find one in a retail store or online - thrift it. I found an insane Levi's vintage jean jacket in a super dark wash at a Goodwill last year and it was like finding gold. I was thrilled with the fit and how perfectly worn in it was and after a couple washes it looks even better. Can't wait to wear it this weekend.
