Jackets; they are warm, cozy, and quiet necessary in the brutal Midwest winters, but they are not always the most stylish of apparel pieces. So when I find a chic fashion-forward jacket, such as the Ruffle Twill Parka Jacket from White House Black Market I can’t help but fall in love.
The first thing that caught my eye with this jacket was its color. The rich plum is perfect for the fall; bold, bright, and a compliment to the browns and beiges that often trend in fall fashion. I also adore the shape altering tie belt and silver snap buttons on along front and pockets.
But my favorite part thing about this coat, are the ruffles on the back bottom. It adds a chic and flirty femininity to the jacket that makes it sophisticated enough to wear to the office, yet it can also add an element of chicness to a more casual outfit.
