STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Jackets

Transitioning between seasons is always a challenge. The best pieces to wear during those times of the year are jackets. Jackets can provides that extra warmth you want while also adding an element of style to any outfit. They aren’t as bulky as a coat, so you can wear them all day or just while you are outside. Jackets are super versatile and can really complement any outfit nicely whether through color, silhouette or fabric.

The Fashionista’s olive quilted jacket with black piping is a great transition piece. Typically, quilted jackets are thicker and seen more in the winter. However, incorporating the jacket into a springtime look adds a nice twist. Layered underneath the jacket is a tan sweater. The sweater is styled like a sweatshirt and just goes to show that you can find stylish yet comfortable alternatives to your favorite lounging clothes.

She completes her look with a simple pair of light wash cuffed jeans. She also wears tan loafers that really tie the look together. The tan matches the tan of the sweater, and the black piping matches the piping on the jacket. They also dress up this otherwise casual look. Loafers are a great alternative to the typical pair of ballet flats. The final piece of this look is her gold watch.
