Ok, so let’s talk about those transitional jackets since Mother Nature has finally given us a hint at fall’s imminent arrival. Because there needs to be a decent layer between your body and the beautiful winds and fall foliage. For which I am super, almost-psychotically excited. Summer was hot and kind of rough, so let’s just leave all that smoking hot sun in the fashion rear view mirror, shall we? I know my blowout won’t miss the tropical humidity.
The two most common casual jackets to help transition into the chill of winter are the military-inspired jacket and the leather jacket. Either are amazing on their own, but what if you could merge them together as one super-badass jacket that instantly-but-stylishly plays runway theme music as you walk down the street? Because this jacket from the hyper-cool line Maison Scotch is the perfect love child of those two amazing looks, and it’s an instant closet upgrade that can make anything from jeans and a t-shirt to a sheath dress look fashion-forward.
From the trapunto stitching on the shoulder that look like raised leather spikes to the cut of the twill, this jacket is perfect for fall, spring and everything in between. In the borrowed-from-the-boys conversation between a duty-bound soldier and a motorcycle-riding bad boy, this is the best possible relationship. Let’s do it: let’s get involved.
