Sweet Styling Tips: How to Wear a Printed Jacket

I have been loving printed jackets lately, mainly thanks to Isabel Marant, and I think one would make a very versatile addition to any wardrobe.  You can find great, lightweight options that will carry you through spring's fluctuating temps.  Here are a few ways you can style a printed jacket:

You really could go on from there. Other ideas would be to pair one with a tank and maxi/midi skirt; with a pair of scalloped edge shorts; or go bold and pair it with another pattern on bottom!  The sky is the limit.

Here are a few great picks, all under $100:

(You may think I am crazy, sending you where I am on the last one, but I love it and it is a really good deal. Tell me it doesn't look just like this one from Loft, which is almost twice as much!)

How would you wear a printed jacket?

  1. love the IKAT version from LOFT! I would totally rock that!

  2. Dude - I just bought a floral print jacket at the thrift store yesterday, and when I picked it up, my cousin was all - THAT IS GROSS - but I tried it on, and she was all - okay, that's kind of cute. HA! I may be crazy and mix up the floral of the jacket with a polka dot pencil skirt that I have, and I'm definitely wearing it with my dark blue skinny jeans. And maybe some shorts and wedges. And who knows what else.

  3. oh i am kicking myself! i found this cute vintage cropped floral jacket the other day and didnt get it because i couldnt tell if it was lame or not. now i want it!
