Jacket Required Fashion-savvy girls test-drive the season’s hottest Jackets
SUZIE DICKER, FASHION-JOURNALISM STUDENT
“I love the angular shoulders and elongated shape; it works perfectly with my take on warrior chic. I’ll wear it with everything from a studded belt and killer stilettos to floral smocks and demure peep-toes.”
Tip: An oversized shape balances a flirty mini.
On Suzie: Cotton jacket, $735, 3.1 Phillip Lim. Cotton tank top, $18, old navy. Viscose skirt, $30, H&M. belt, Brave Beltworks; boots, Aldo.
ALANA KRENBRINK, BUYER/FASHION STYLIST
“It makes a statement while still giving me an effortless look. The combination of playful and sharp, yet a little edgy with feminine touches, is a look that is decidedly my own.”
Tip: A snug fit gives a polished look.
On Alana: Wool/polyester-blend jacket, $49, Joe Fresh Style. Cotton/modal-blend dress, $59, Delicious. cuff, Aldo Accessories; belt, Kumari’s; socks, BleuForêt; boots, Nine West.
JESSI CRUICKSHANK, MTV HOST AND SEGMENT PRODUCER
“It makes that slightly jarring wardrobe transition from summer to fall a little less traumatic and a lot more chic. I can pare it down at the office or layer it up outside.”
Tip: A longer silhouette flatters most shapes.
On Jessi: Wool jacket, $395, Smythe. Pima cotton tank top, $60, American Vintage. Wool skirt, $245, Elizabeth and James. Necklace, Subversive Jewelry by Justin Giunta; bracelets, K’ien and Linea Pelle; hose, BleuForêt; boots, Christian Louboutin.
