Jackets as Cardigans; Rethinking your Outerwear as Innerwear

March 19, 2014


This transitional time of year calls for creative dressing. The morning and evening commute or school pick-up and drop-off are downright frigid, but the sun warms your mid-day outings.

Pull on your leather, denim and surplus jackets as though they were cardigans or as a third layer over your cardigan, sweater or sweatshirt. Not only will they provide you with additional warmth and variety both in weight and styling for your pre-spring outfits, but they can also allow you to leave the heavy down puffer coat or wool topcoat in your office when you escape for lunch or in the car when you’re running errands.

And, as an added bonus, you’ll immediately increase their cost per wear, which is always a satisfying experience! Happy layering!!
