This year we're obsessed with polished looks and this means topping your look with a jacket. Of course the basic jacket can be boring to work with. These are a few of the stylish alternatives to switch up your basic topper whether you're headed to the office or dinner with the girls.
- The cape. This one works best for casual outings unless you work in a creative setting where the cape jokes will be at bay. The cape is great for transition weather worn over a turtleneck or lightweight sweater. You can also wear it over a classic sheath dress to give it a fashion forward spin.
- Strong shoulders. If the Golden Globes taught us anything, it's that this trend is back in action. Strong shoulders reign once again and they are easy to wear in strong neutral tones like navy, red and black. It's classic with that trendy twist.
- The statement jacket. Choose brocade or an intense print in a traditional shape when choosing a statement jacket. Statement jackets work well with slim ankle length pants and they're the fastest way to dress up a pair of jeans.
