When I was younger, I never appreciated jackets. My mom would have to sweet-talk me into a parka every day before school while muttering the infamous motherly catch phrase: “You’ll catch a cold if you don’t wear it!”

Sanctuary ClothingOh how the times have changed. I actually get super excited about outerwear now. A jacket can be the easiest way to take an outfit from drab to fab. Today, I’m going to show you just how easy it is to style a jacket three different ways, using this lovely number by Sanctuary Clothing.

Bobi Clothing maxi skirt

On casual days when you don’t want to fuss with your outfit, go for knits! The Hard Tail long skinny tee comes in many colors, but this one in ‘curry’ is refreshing next to the classic army green hue of the jacket. A maxi skirt is an obvious ‘yes’ when seeking a comfortable bottom. This one by Bobi Clothing is made of super soft jersey and the gray color goes with everything.

To dress it up a bit more, go for this gorgeous long sleeved black dress by Velvet. The leather panel parallel to the hem is a perfect little add-on that makes this dress fancy enough to go out in. The is jacket left open in order to show off the layered necklaces and silhouette of the dress. The jacket is slightly oversized; just enough to add some edge to the whole outfit.

Since leopard is the new neutral, why not wear it with the jacket? It makes for an interesting color combo and adds some sass to your step. A pair of statement earrings and metallic flats helps to tie the unexpected combo together. This time, the jacket is zipped up instead of belted, leaving the neckline open to show off the sweater. This is a more experimental look for ladies who aren’t afraid of influencing trends.

Right now is the perfect time to start looking for your fall coat. Do it before you catch a cold! Kidding, but you should definitely check out all of our new fall arrivals. Tell us what you think of the featured jacket! Love it or hate it?
