Question from Zandi4532: I just bought a crop leather jacket last week for a really great deal but now that its colder where I live I don’t know how to wear it and with what. Do I have to wait until it is warm again to wear my new jacket?
Hey Zandi, if there is a will there’s a way, especially with clothes. There are a couple of things you have to think about if you’re living in a colder climate and want to wear the crop jacket. Think of the crop jacket as a layering piece. If the crop jacket is tight, it will be easy to wear it under heavier, bigger coats, and on top of dresses or my favorite of the season, turtlenecks.
If the crop jacket is a bit lose, so lose that layers underneath the jacket can help you create a new outer-wear look. Pair the lose crop jacket with fitted warm sweaters or cardigans that can be buttoned-up.
Now fitted or lose, the crop leather jacket does give you that edgy look. If you want to tone it down a bit, pair the jacket with a long or midi skirt, summer printed dresses that will look great with black tights or incorporate an oversize knitted scarf with the jacket. I’m a sucker for the infinity scarves from urbanoutfitters.com. They’re really warm and can be also be worn as a hoodie.
Check out the pieces I’ve selected which may work with the crop jacket. Hope this helps. Enjoy.
