I know this isn’t the most seasonally appropriate post I’ve ever done for those of us trudging through frozen rain at the moment, as we have been here in New York. But I am reminded in the comments not infrequently that I have readers who live in warmer climates. And I think maybe, if I’m being really honest, the reason I so rarely do wintertime posts that may feel relevant to you is because I am just really jealous. I dream of the sun all winter long, and you people are living my dream. But I will also say that there is something to be said for encountering spring after a particularly brutal winter, so I shall look forward to enjoying these little chore jackets—that are maybe a trend, but more likely just a newish classic, like clogs—when the sun returns. This first one is from Everlane (Yes, Everlane again, but it’s good, and super-cheap) and I would wear the hell out of it layered with a cashmere hoodie.
I could almost see this drapey & Other Stories option in an office-y environment, styled as a kind of dressed-down blazer.
This Madewell option is such a cool and grown-up take on the denim jacket (even though it’s styled pretty young here, it must be said).
And here’s another Madewell number that has a slightly military-ish feel.
