Hey guys! I don’t know about you but I am in complete denial that summer is almost over… like what?! I swear I was just getting ready to graduate college. One of the only things I like about the warm weather coming to an end (at least here in Seattle) is the arrival of some new styles. This post covers a fall trend I am alllll about: bold statement jackets. I’m going to fill you in on why you’re gonna want one for this upcoming season, and show you how I styled one of mine.
I scored this mustard-colored suede effect jacket at Zara just a few weeks back for only $50… gotta love that place. I’ll link it as well as some similar pieces at the end of this post!
So… Why do you need a statement jacket for the fall?
Wellllll, have you noticed that you get the most compliments when you wear something that’s a little more out there? I definitely have. People appreciate things that are different!
Fun statement pieces are what make your wardrobe yours. Everyone has the classic jacket staples: denim, leather, etc… switch it up and pick out one that is a bright color or spunky pattern instead!
I’ve really tried to keep this type of mindset while shopping recently – I’m naturally someone who gravitates towards more simple and versatile things. I always tell myself I’ll get more use out of these items, which may be true. BUT… It is the quirky, unique pieces that spice up our closet and help to distinguish our style from everyone else’s!
Drop earrings are huge right now – I’m sure they’ll stick around as a fall trend! These are the Baleen ‘Pinna’ earrings. Check out my recent post on why I love Baleen here. They have the coolest story!
Statement jackets can be worn so many ways! Add cropped slacks and pumps for work, a skirt and booties for a night out, or jeans and whatever shoes you’re currently loving like I did here for an everyday feel.
When it comes to bright spunky pieces, you can always play it safe and pair them with denim or another solid color. Mixing colors and patterns can be fun too though… don’t be afraid to try it!
The lining and seams of this jacket are black, so along with cropped jeans I chose a black tank and mules. I apologize if you guys are sick of seeing these mules in all of my posts, they are just SO incredibly easy to wear with anything!
Quick side note on the jeans: my little sister lucked out and found these ones on Poshmark! All you have to do is search ‘vintage high-rise jeans’ and you should get some good results. I also recommend selling your old clothes on there if you have things to get rid of.
One of my very first blog posts was ‘4 Wear Ways to Wear Cropped Jeans‘ (like this pair)… check it out!
- JACKET (under $50; runs true to size – wearing a S)
- TANK (no longer available – alternatives below)
- JEANS (a Poshmark find – alternatives below)
- EARRINGS (under $50 and so well made; also available in black/gold)
