Spring 2018 Shopping - Spring Jackets
In the movie Miss Congeniality, contestant Cheryl from Rhode Island said it best when asked to describe her perfect date - "I'd have to say April 25th. Because it's not too hot, not too cold, all you need is a light jacket."
I love jackets in general, but light jackets are the best because they can be worn as part of your outfit. A simple leather jacket can effortlessly amplify your look from basic to chic.
Below are some of my favorite jackets for Spring
Denim jackets are a must in everyone's closet. They have been around in one style or another throughout my entire life. When I was younger, big and bulky were the style (which is marking a comeback), but currently I gravitate to the more fitted and cropped versions. Embellishments and distressed details add another fun twist, so if you already have a basic denim jacket, you could add a more detailed version to your wardrobe.
I started buying suede jackets 2 years ago and it has become a little obsession of mine. Out of all of my jackets, I tend to include the suede jacket as a part of my outfit, as opposed to something to throw on to keep warm. The suede jacket elevates the look and adds the perfect finishing touch.
These jackets are reasonably priced, so I did not create save and splurge versions. Below are my favorites for this season.
Leather jackets can be worn in any season and are therefore the one type of jacket I would recommend splurging on (if you are looking for an investment piece). A basic black leather jacket is a great starting point but then you could also add in some fun patterns or colors to your collection.
In addition to the styles mentioned above, this category covers all other jacket options. These jackets are comfortable, lightweight and perfect for those Spring temperatures.
