Fashion Friday: The Spring Jacket

As we begin (hopefully) to pack away the winter wools and fleeces, it’s time to transition to the spring jacket for warmth (and, at times, shelter from the April showers). As the weather warms and the flowers bloom, bid farewell to the multiple layers we’ve been donning all winter (and the exhaustion that came with taking them on and off) and instead opt for a jacket that is simple, elegant, and refined. This is the season for the lightweights!

Take this deep spring green statement jacket from casual to dressy. The texture and tones of the silk matka give it a look that reminds us of tweed and adds an intriguing artisan feeling.

This collarless jacket, tailored from lustrous quilted black silk-satin, is fully lined for a smooth drape. Cinch yours at the waist with the removable belt, finishing with skinny pants and point-toe pumps.

Nanette Lepore’s “Matador” cotton-blend knit coat with embroidered trim offers a spacious, relaxed fit and large patch pockets for the casual but eccentric look.



Corded Guipure Lace Peplum Jacket by Oscar de la Renta

It may say “jacket” in the title, but it’s really a work of art—round neckline, long sheer sleeves, peplum waist, scalloped hem dips in front, fitted silhouette.  Simply a masterpiece.

    Of course the headline got me.

    Even though my jackets are vintage from thrift stores. None could I have afforded when new, just like the ones shown.

    Adore how you chose the different personas. Exactly how I feel about my jacket collection.

    Oddly, each of your jackets can be dressed wildly up or down, just like mine.

    Of course, saving on jackets means I can spend real $$$ on shoes. We each have a weakness.

    These are beautiful garments, and I enjoy looking at them, particularly the leather cape (just my style), the Worth jacket (great color), and the Lepore coat (gorgeous!). Unfortunately, none of them is practical enough to get much use from me (except maybe the Lepore coat…) or inexpensive enough for me to purchase for occasional wearing (as much as I’d like to). Thank you for a very pleasant break this morning!
