I have a confession…there are a TON of jackets and coats in my closet. I’m not sure what it is about them that I love so much. Maybe it’s that they keep me so warm and cozy…or maybe it’s that they combat the elements of the weather so well. Honestly, it’s probably just because I think they look awesome and it’s fun to always be wearing something new. I HAVE A PROBLEM, I KNOW!!
I started to notice jackets being layered with coats on the runways in the past couple of years. A big thing last year was to sport a denim jacket underneath a topcoat, which I love and have yet to attempt. Today, I’m trying my hand at this cool winter layering technique. A lot of guys have probably worn their suit jacket underneath an overcoat, right? This is a similar tactic. I’m wearing this lighter weight canvas jacket from Vans underneath the heavier, button up coat from FiveFour. What I really love about this look is the accessibility to so many pockets. When I first left the house this morning, I had the coat buttoned and my hands in the pockets because it was cooler. Yet once it began to warm up, I was able to unbutton the coat and access the jacket pockets in the front. I like to put my hands someplace while I’m walking, it eliminates the awkwardness of me not knowing where to put them.
Wool cap, Thursday Boots on a Thursday and my new shades from Feltraiger and I’m out the door and ready to conquer whatever the day has to offer. This is a look that I’d feel comfortable going almost anywhere in because it’s functional, comfortable and also dressy enough to fit in at the bar or most restaurants.
