Do you think that the best shirt is a jacket? If you’re the type to never take off your layers even when indoors, then this Rachel Comey piece is your idea of heaven. The wacky-printed coat is shot through with glittery threads and hits just at the knee. It’s eye-catching and special enough that you’ll want to save it for a really specific occasion. Don’t. It’s one of those items in your closet that you can whip out, time and time again, to make even the most basic uniform feel fresh.

Here it’s worn with skinny jeans, a slim navy turtleneck, and fun silver sneakers that play off the shine, but, really, anything will work. And if you want the same look for less, try this MSGM printed jacket with a plain Topshop turtleneck.
