Statement Jackets

This weather can be so tricky -- it's chilly in the morning, cool but the sun is warm in the afternoon. It's the perfect reason to buy a new statement jacket. Blogger and fashion expert Amy Seeman shows us how to make a statement wearing one.

Amy's Look - Velvet Moto Jacket from Evereve

Model 1: Anna Kolden - Floral Bomber from Rent the Runway

  • The bomber jacket is an old classic that has come back full circle with a fresh new take! It's not the leather bomber your dad sported in the 90's, but it's equally as cool. 
  • For an athleisure look it also looks great with a tunic length tee in a stripe or solid, leggings, and rose gold/blush fashion sneakers. 
  • This jacket is on loan from Rent the Runway ($70 or $150 if you do unlimited) and would be great to rent for a trip since it's easy to pack and can be worn so many different ways. 

Model 2: Kim Tatera - Suede Moto Jacket from Vici Collection

  • If you could only buy one thing this fall, Amy would recommend a suede moto jacket!  
  • People tend to gravitate towards a black or tan jacket because it's a neutral so they think they will get more wear for the money, but Amy says go for the bold color! 
  • Amy says, “For a good suede jacket you will probably pay over $100, but don't be afraid of the investment. You'll wear it for years and a cheap suede will look cheap. This one looks and feels good for the price point of only $72.”

Model 3: Alyssa Heim - Varsity Jacket from Evereve 

  • This jacket is a cross between a blazer and your high school boyfriend's letter jacket 
  • Because the price point of most jackets are higher, you want to invest in ones that are versatile. You can keep it casual with a graphic tee or a hoodie, or you can add a feminine touch like a silk blouse with lace trim. 
  • This is a great alternative to a black blazer that can still be dressed up when you need it, but is much cooler for date night
