When you’re considering where to splurge in the shopping world, it’s best to think about the ratio of use that item will get in comparison to the rest of your closet. For example, a fabulous pair of jeans gets more wear than a sequin halter (unless you are really working the 70’s revival). Another item scoring high this season on the wearability card are tailored jackets.

Tailored jackets can range anywhere from a full black and white tuxedo jacket to a nipped in blazer. The point is to show your body with a proper fit, while providing another layer in the cool trending months. Throw one over a t-shirt for a casual, but classy, look or pair with a pencil skirt for dressier times.

As far as getting the bang for your buck, a chic little jacket will never go out of style….Just ask Chanel.
