It’s good every once in a while to find yourself interested in some look that is completely out of your wheelhouse—it keeps you from falling into a wardrobe rut. And that is pretty much how I feel about kimono jackets, which are pretty far from my aesthetic, but which I find myself drawn to lately. Part of it is that so many of them are vehicles for good prints, but I also just like the easy glamour of them, and how they instantly elevate an otherwise everyday outfit. I’m quite tempted by this one, because the lines are nice and clean, and I think it would look so good with black jeans.
I actually tried this Ace & Jig jacket on at Bird the last time I was in Brooklyn, and was sorely tempted, but couldn’t quite justify it given the number of jackets that are already in my closet. They do matchy-clashy really well, Ace & Jig does.
The embroidery here is very sweet.
A nicely priced option, and the blue pops in such a lovely way.
I am crazy for this splurgetastic choice from The Kooples—it is the ultimate throw-it-on-and-you’re-ready-for-a-party piece.
And this quilted denim jacket is exactly perfect for the weather right now.
