I hope that you’re having a great week! It has been an incredibly productive week around here, so I am super grateful! The temperatures have been in the 70s, so I have been thinking a lot about transitional wardrobe pieces. J. Crew Lady Jackets are my go-to during the in-between weather stages when it is not too cold and not too hot. I love a classic lady jacket because it can be dressed down with denim or dressed up for work with a fun pencil or midi skirt, with dress pants, or with a midi slip dress. The lady jacket is not a trendy piece. Instead, it is a classic, timeless piece that can be worn for decades to come.
J.Crew Lady Jackets
Types of J.Crew Lady Jackets:
What I love most about J. Crew Lady Jackets is that they are offered in a variety of fits, textures, patterns, lengths, and designs. J. Crew offers the lady jacket in styles including cropped, structured quilted jackets, boucle’ sweater blazer-jackets, leather jackets, denim jackets, and trench coats. The J. Crew Louisa Lady Jacket in Gingham Terry Tweed is incredibly cute and versatile. I love that the jacket can be dressed down with denim or dressed up with the matching skirt. I styled the jacket without a lightweight camisole underneath, but it would also look great paired with a bow or tie-neck blouse or a basic white t-shirt.

Styling J.Crew Lady Jackets:
I love the versatility of J. Crew Lady Jackets because they can be styled SO many fun ways. Recently, I have been reaching for fun white shirts with embellished details to wear underneath bold colored lady jackets. I paired the J. Crew Collection Cropped Lady Jacket in Italian Wool-Blend Boucle’ with the J. Crew Scalloped Cotton Poplin Popover. The scalloped details make the texture and the design of the lady jacket pop and standout. The sleeves are SOOO fun and cute. And, I finished the look by adding distressed denim and Black Mary Jane flats.
