I’m still a great believer in the power of a jacket to make the simplest outfit look pulled together. Even jeans and a tee shirt.
In the last few years, I’ve had only limited luck with finding jackets that work for me. Either they were too boxy and stiff, too fussy or too Corporate Drag™ or conservative. My winning jacket formula is what I call “softly structured,” which means that they have some inherent shape and tailoring but are fashioned from knits or soft fabrics that drape. This may turn out to be one of my favorite jackets ever. The styling is reminiscent of a tuxedo jacket and it dresses up or down with ease. The poly fabric is silky and drapes beautifully, is lightweight and doesn’t wrinkle so should pack and travel well. And get this: it’s made with 38% recycled water bottles!
These Arche sandals are seriously some of the most comfortable I’ve ever had on my feet. The nubuck is soft and doesn’t rub anywhere, there’s padding under the ball of the foot, and a walkable heel.
Do you have a favorite jacket style? Or is there another item of clothing that you always rely on to look polished?
