The Jackets Every Woman Should Have in Her Closet
We've all been there, tidying up our mess of a closet to find a jacket we haven't worn in years or one with tags still attached (who knows how long ago we bought it), but no longer on-trend. Well, it's time to get smart about shopping, and that means making sure you're covering your basics before you worry about the fads. Among the closet essentials that will stand the test of time are the jackets below. They'll carry you through any occasion, from your desk to dinner to weekend outings. Ask yourself if you have the jackets on this list. If not, get a move on: this is one big investment you won't regret.
A.L.C. Wool and Cotton-Blend Blazer ($291, originally $727)
The jacket for Spring showers and for when it pours in the Winter. Stay dry with a trench.
A Moto Jacket
A jacket that makes you look cool to the core and says you are not to be messed with.
When you don't want to wear a jacket because sometimes layering takes too much effort, throw on a puffer vest with your basic tee or a long-sleeved sweater. The feather down will be enough to keep you from the chill.
J.Crew Shiny Quilted Puffer Vest ($100, originally $128)
Bernardo PrimaLoft® Vest ($59, originally $118)
Donna Karan New York Belted Cashmere Wrap Jacket ($1,497, originally $2,995)
A Statement Jacket
The fun, colorful, happy side of you wants to express itself. Do it in a statement-making jacket.
