Just a few years ago, jackets were something I regarded with aversion—I hated drowning my polished outfits beneath giant puffers and stodgy blazers. Happily, this season’s jackets are as decorative as they are practical.
Right in step with the bright-and-bold trend, the best pieces are beautifully printed. 3.1 Phillip Lim and Sass & Bide offer chic, playful blazers calculated to elevate your skinnies or infuse your office looks with a confident, youthful vibe. For outerwear, the inimitable Lindsey Thornburg cloaks are the classics of tomorrow: edgy, assured, and eminently wearable.
