Spring 2014 Trends: Textured Jackets

Happy FIRST DAY OF SPRING, my lovelies!  I’ve never looked forward to spring so much. I normally love fall and winter, but after the winter we’ve had here in NYC, this may be the first time I’ve ever felt excited about warmer temperatures.

And … one of the best things about spring is THE FASHION.  There are so many fun fashion trends to try this season, and you don’t have to go broke doing it, either. For the next two weeks, I’m going to be breaking down all of the hottest trends for spring for you, and giving you tons of options for working them into your closet.

First up: Textured Jackets.

What to look for: Interesting fabrics and textures like lace or tweed, quilted stitching, embellishments or anything that creates visual interest. Pale, more muted colors will allow you to see the textures best.

What to wear it with: Very simple pieces and accessories … a jacket like this should be the focal point of your outfit. A simple tee or tank underneath will let this jacket really shine.
