closet staple: embellished jackets
one of my favorite things about fashion is, no matter what we're individually drawn to, our style and perception of style inevitably evolves and changes as time goes on. if you've known me longer than a few years, you probably know i've had many phases of maximalism during my style evolution, and i think (well i hope) i've finally tamed it to a respectable degree. one thing that has helped me rein in the maximalism and edit down my wardrobe is focusing on closet staples and figuring out what they are for me.
since i still love to make a statement and wear colors and metallics and fringe and other fun dangly stuff- which can look insane if you do it all at once- an embellished jacket is literally the perfect solution because it's the convergence of all of these things in one. which means i get to go crazy with the jacket and chill the f out everywhere else, which is surprisingly effortless and easy.
i love throwing a beautiful embellished jacket or coat over layers in the winter because it gives you permission to skip the jewelry part if you're in a rush or you just don't feel like it. here are some of my favorite ways to wear this look:
how do you feel about this trend? do you think it's here to stay for awhile??
