This season, cropped jackets are hot, hot, hot. This Captain Glam Jacket is incredibly chic and a must-have for anyone keeping up with current trends. Its silver sequin details and mandarin collar are both flattering and a welcome update to my other black jacket. The three-quarter sleeves meet at the flap pockets found on the waist, making it glamorous and chic. However, at $368, the jacket was a distant dream.
At $168, the Free People “Officer’s” Blazer” available at Bloomingdales.com, is a total steal. Made of rich merino wool, this military-inspired blazer is embellished with rope trim and decorative gold buttons. I absolutely love this standing collar with the detailed badge and the discreet hook-and-eye snaps.
