Looking for lasting style on a budget? There are some trends that appear regularly on the catwalk, and you can be sure that if you invest in these pieces, you can look good at work, conserve your money, and still stay current from season to season.
Shop for these three trends in jackets and keep them around for long time! You’ll always find a way to work these separates into your wardrobe.
1. Military influences: Try to find items that you can wear again and again with epaulets and extra pockets. Try Paul Smith for interesting jackets with slight military appeal—my personal favorite! Check out military styles from Diesel, too, as pictured.
2. Trench coats: Trench coats are classic. Buy a well-fitting one in traditional tan with buttons and flaps, and you’ll be wearing it for years to come. Make an investment and buy Burberry if you can, even if it’s second hand.
3. Zip-up jackets: Zip-up jackets can be layered with nearly everything. Dress them up and down with different shirts and slacks in the trendy colors of the season. You can find tons of discounted brands at Bluefly.com, including Calvin Klein, Le Tigre (pictured), and Monarchy.
