the short sleeve jacket
My dad reports that the weather's been horrible in New York. Here, it's freezing one day, warm the next. No matter what coast I'm on, spring's mercurial elements often cloud the issue of what to wear outside-- i.e., trench coat, pea coat or no coat? Lately, I've been thinking about whether a short sleeve jacket might help address the conundrum. It's ideal for layering: great over a lightweight or chunky sweater or simply a t-shirt or blouse. It's also unique and completely chic. Club Monaco has a short sleeve parka-meets-trench coat hybrid that's seriously stylish and versatile. For one that's similar to the jacket pictured above, check out this leather one from All Saints. For colder climes, I love this gorgeous faux fur jacket from BSABLE. You can also go the utilitarian route with these spring-perfect parka types (like the one below) from Mango and Willow & Clay.
