One of the more difficult voids to fill in our closet is the role of “fancy-ish evening cover-up.” Something you can thrown on over a pretty dress or flirty top that isn’t business-like (like a structured blazer) or casual (like a knit cardigan). That’s where the silky shirt-jacket comes in. We saw a number of… READ MORE »

As luck would have it — it being Wedding Week and all — I am attending the wedding of a good friend from college this weekend, in the Napa Valley. I know, boo hoo for me, what a pain. What is a pain is that I do not have a cover-up of any sort to… READ MORE »

On Saturday, I went to the Salvation Army coat sale for the first time. It would have been quite an overwhelming experience if my “thrifting coach,” Patrice J. Williams of Living Fly On A Dime, hadn’t given me some pointers before we began shopping. You see, Patrice has challenged herself to purchase only thrifted, second-hand,… READ MORE »

Feathers are everywhere this fashion season. They’re on blouses, sweaters, skirts, and jackets, like this Peplum Jacket from Romeo & Juliet Couture. The feathers on this jacket are nowhere near the face or neck, so there’s no risk of looking like the Chicken Lady or Big Bird. But there’s still something off about this jacket. READ MORE »

Thanks to the continuation of the military trend, the anorak is still big this season. Anoraks make staying warm in the fall a no-brainer because the drawstring and loose sleeves make layering easy. As Amelia has already shown, anoraks look hot with a girly dress, but of course are appropriate with jeans or even shorts. READ MORE »

We’re used to Topshop for excellent Brit fashion and making the ’80s OK. Now we’re loving it more for an edgier side that’s surprisingly soft—like this asymmetrical linen “Waterfall” jacket that looks like it walked off the Yohji runway. So many options: wear under a blazer for a flourished layer look, keep on the back… READ MORE »

We’ve officially entered that odd, in-between season where temperatures hover between the mid 40s to 60s and make navigating jacket selection an obnoxiously difficult task. We should be wearing medium-weight toppers, trenches and leathers. Instead, however, I look around and see droves of women in too-heavy woolens and too-light cottons, apparently having decided to ignore… READ MORE »

As is our way, we’ve become, ahem, a little preoccupied with yet another new designer. GAR-DE, a New York-based fashion collective, makes the coolest clothes we’ve seen in a while. From hood tops to fitted jackets with adorable striped lining and leather detailing, there’s almost no piece in the collection that we aren’t into. While… READ MORE »

It’s not even February yet and we’re already thinking about spring, big time. One of our favorite aspects of changing seasons is finding a new jacket to complement our new fashion outlook, but we hate having to wait to wear said acquisition. This Loft Drawstring Anorak has a wear-it-now/wear-it-later vibe, so it won’t hang in… READ MORE »

In an attempt to foster party pride, the African National Congress of South Africa commissioned a line of jackets, hoping they would take off as a unifying trend. But, judging from the blinding neon offerings and negative preliminary reactions, this collection is going nowhere fast. The line of coats for men and women may have… READ MORE »

Packing for a trip means whittling your wardrobe down to a fraction of its size while still ensuring you’re prepared for all sorts of weather conditions and situations. Old Navy’s travel-friendly Jacket-in-a-Packet can be neatly stashed in a built-in pouch, saving precious space in your luggage, and its chic trench coat-style will guarantee you look… READ MORE »

There are two approaches to winter fashion—either you’re a utilitarian and go for a heavy-duty parka (well, a cute, one of course), or you’re a wool/swing/pea coat kinda gal. There are benefits and downfalls to both. With a puffy jacket, you don’t have the best piece to transition from day to night, but you’re always… READ MORE »

Fall fashion gets a little ho-hum—another cardigan, anyone?—which is why we’re ordering this short-sleeved military jacket by BB Dakota, stat. Unlike other military jackets, it’s not made of long or bulky fabric which covers up your body. Nor does it scream “nautical trend!” which was so last season anyway. We dig any piece in our… READ MORE »

Keri Russell was spotted out and about in Brooklyn this weekend, and while we couldn’t help but notice her white canvas slip-ons (our summer obsession), we think her army green field jacket would be perfect on a cool fall day. In fact, Amelia paired one with a printed blue and maroon dress today, which toned… READ MORE »

This brand-spanking new military inspired denim jacket was custom made and photographed for the Guess Fall 2009 ad campaign, which you can see in stores and magazines now. What elevates this piece beyond your standard denim fare is all the amazing metal detail, including chains and antique buttons stamped with 1981, the year Guess was… READ MORE »

The bad ass-ness of a biker jacket, the comfort of a sweatshirt — sounds awesome to us! This bright blue, fleece sweater jacket from Silence & Noise is perfect for the impending spring weather, and would look great roughing up a structured dress or warming up a denim mini and T-shirt. The only negative? Your… READ MORE »

Blowup dolls will keep you warm — especially when they’re turned into fresh track jackets. Dutch designer (and über hottie) Sander Reijgers has had his way with a whole lot of blowup dolls and then repurposed them into stylish, if unusual, threads. The Mama Anders line is made for both women and men, and the… READ MORE »
