The “Lady Jacket,” part cardigan, part blazer, is the season’s must-have piece.
They are everywhere, at every price point.
You can dress them up, or down and they come in a range of lengths, so you can pick the best one for your body type – more on that in an upcoming post.
And while they are a classic style with real long-term wearability, they are not in my spend category.
I feel like they are too specific of a piece to spend two or three hundred dollars on. You don’t get a good Cost Per Wear from them at that price point.
I would rather have a few less expensive options for variety instead of just one that I would have to wear all the time to get any real value out of.
I’m sharing today’s feature piece, this Lady Jacket from J.Crew Factory because I know it’s going to sell out before I get to do in depth round up of options
In fact, this whole outfit is built with well fitting classic, affordable pieces.
The jeans are the Mid Rise Baby Boot Jeans from Gap Factory. They are awesome.
My tank is a from Amazon Essentials, comes in pack of two (I ordered the white and black) for only $15. For a tank that no one is going to see, it more than does the trick.
The bag I’ve shared a dozen times. It’s also from Amazon, for $30 plus right now there is an additional 20% off coupon at checkout. I have this in three colors.
It’s small but fits a card case, phone, keys, a lipstick – the must-haves.
An my ankle boots are Sam Edelman from a few seasons ago.
