We’re all over the idea that women over 40 can’t wear these, right? Especially when they come in so many cool iterations. Like for instance, this utilitarian Nili Lotan jacket, which isn’t cheap but is just so good.
The longer length here appeals.
This cropped jacket would be perfect for pairing with dresses.
A cool quilted option in a nice light wash.
The bell sleeves here are a sophisticated touch.
And I like the flap pockets on this one.
This chore jacket has a slightly more body-skimming cut than most chore jackets, which I appreciate.
A belted utility jacket from Mother Denim that couldn’t be a whole lot more spiff.
The slim lines here give this one polish.
I could see throwing on this duster for morning dog walks.
A classic Levi’s jacket in fresh optic white.
Here’s a super-cheap choice that’s the exactly right amount of cropped.
This A.P.C. jacket is quite casually elegant.
I dig the colorblock-ish business going on here.
The wash on this well-priced jacket is perfectly un-distressed.
Here’s one from Madewell that’s ideal if you just want a straightforward denim jacket.
How fun is this coral-hued one?
Puffy shoulders are suddenly everywhere, and I’m feeling ambivalent (at best) about them, but don’t mind the subtle ones on this jacket.
And finally: I like the peplum action here.
