We’ve entered the season of big coats — absolute units if you will. But when it’s not quite cold enough to go full-on puffer or pea coat, consider going the opposite way and choosing a sleek little cropped jacket. The turtleneck/jeans/jacket combo is standard enough. But the proportion play sells the look.
A mini-jacket can be a bit intimidating, especially when you’re used to wearing something that’s at least hip-grazing. In the summer and early fall, it looks great with maxi-dresses. But in the cooler months it’s best to pick a high-waisted pair of pants so as to avoid an awkward, half-exposed midriff. A colorful turtleneck adds a bit of color and extra warmth. There: You’re ready for a long walk in the park.
