The Soft Feminine Jacket

There's the hard, masculine jacket, which takes the form of a tuxedo jacket (dressed-up), a motorcycle jacket (dressed-down), or a suit jacket (work/day), but then there's the soft, feminine jacket, which takes the form of a belted jacket, a billowy, puff sleeved jacket, or a creative jacket, which incorporates an nontraditional detail (like the side buttons and extended collar on the L.A.M.B. jacket, seen above). In this unpredictable weather (it was 39 degrees this morning, but on Wednesday it's supposed to top 70 degrees), a chic feminine jacket is just the thing to provide warmth and fashion. The beauty of this look is that it can be paired with just about anything: jeans, a skirt, or a dress.
