Extra layers are sexy, too.
I always feel best in a loose tank, jeans and heels. I’ve always felt it to be harder to feel “hot” with more giant layers on top, especially being from Chicago–winter made it almost physically impossible to look anything other than painfully freezing. Now that LA has redefined winter for me, I’ve made it my mission to find jackets I can feel comfortable and confident in to complete my look! These five trending jackets have become staples in my closet, and I’ve linked a few exact items at the bottom of this post to shop! For items that may have sold out, I linked a few similar options as well as coats I’m eyeing. Point being: you’ve got a lot to choose from :).
Quick breakdown of these must-haves:
1. Oversized faux fur.
Wanna look bad and boujee? Simple. The Who What Wear Collection is seriously slaying all the trends right now, and this jacket is no exception. It’s super affordable, great quality and will actually keep you warm, cozy and cute all winter long.
2. Laced bomber.
Or any bomber, really. I found this at Wasteland (no surprise) by Nasty Gal, and it adds the perfect amount of edge to any look.
3. Metallic puffer coat.
Puffer coats are hugely in right now, and I highly recommend checking out ASOS for chic, affordable options. I’ve also been aggressively hopping onto this metallics trend with everything lately, so I can’t rave enough about how obsessed I am with this jacket!
4. Leopard print faux fur.
Do I even have to explain this? It was trending last year, and it’s not slipping up. If you’re going for a high fashion fierce feel, this is one forever trending jacket that belongs in your wardrobe.
5. Patched denim.
Two things here: distressed white denim, yes please. Vintage patches, even more yes. I got this jacket from Windsor and found a bunch of cheap patches at the Rose Bowl Flea Market (every second Sunday of the month in LA) and ironed them on to create one of my favorite staple pieces. Obviously, if you’re in colder weather this season, this belongs under a winter coat, buuuut if you’re dealing with LA weather, you’re good to go!
