Outfit Crushes: denim jacket – SheIn, jeans – Mother, booties – Qupid, sunnies – F21.
Hey guys! Sorry I’ve been MIA for a while, but I’m back at it with another blog post for ya. We’re finally in that transitional period where it’s sometimes chilly and sometimes warm. I love this time of year because it’s a great excuse to wear some lightweight layering pieces. I figured I’d list my top 5 favorite Spring/Summer transitional jackets for 2017.
To start, the one I’m wearing is a faded, black, distressed denim jacket from SheIn. This is a great piece to layer on top of graphic t-shirts or even just casual shirts in general. Denim on denim is pretty big right now as well, so don’t be afraid to layer with more denim jeans in different hues and shades. It looks effortless.
My second pick is another denim jacket, but in a fun color such as: cherry red, dusty pink, or yellow. S/S is a great time to start adding brighter hues to your wardrobe and staple denim jackets can be worn over and over again. I’ve linked some examples for you to check out below!
Another great transitional jacket for this time of year is a windbreaker. The casual, more laid back style is really in making athleisure wear more prominent in people’s wardrobes. Windbreakers are a great way to layer with your favorite athletic brand such as Nike, Adidas, Puma, etc. They look great over a basic white t-shirt, leggings, and sneakers.
My fourth pick is of course a bomber. Bombers made a huge comeback this year and they aren’t going away anytime soon. I think a bomber in a light weight fabric such as satin or polyester is perfect over dresses, thinner sweaters, or long sleeves. You can’t go wrong with a good bomber and like the denim jacket trend I was mentioning earlier, you can choose to make it a statement piece by purchasing one in a vibrant color to spice up your wardrobe.
Finally, I’ve gotta mention a good rain coat. If you live anywhere like Columbus, like I do, it could be 45 and cloudy in the morning, 75 and sunny in the afternoon, and then thunder storming with 40 mph winds at 6pm. You never know what the weather is going to be like and it’s always nice to be prepared. Rain coats aren’t usually the first thing I gravitate towards, but everyone needs at least one in their wardrobe. As mentioned, I’ve linked some of my favorites on my current wish list for you guys to check out below. (what I’m wearing is always linked below my signature)
