Long jackets and vests are a wardrobe staple for me. They’re so easy to throw on over just about anything and elevate your look in the perfect way. For those of us that are shorter, they can really help lengthen your body and make you appear taller (I need all the help I can get!).

I love the neutral color of this taupe jacket. It looks great with black, but I can pair it with just about any color. Long jackets are perfect to wear with mini dresses, shorts and a t-shirt, and pants, like I did here. If you have any tight mini dresses lying around that you’re not quite comfortable wearing on their own, long jackets can provide just enough coverage to make you feel comfortable but still sexy. They’re the perfect transition piece to take you from summer to fall or winter to spring. Try wearing them with cutoffs and a bodysuit. They give you a little more coverage without the weight of a heavy jacket.Anodyne Coffee in Milwaukee

  1. This has to be my favorite style of yours! You rock these in so many shots and the color of this one is perfect for everything! I love the idea of wearing this style of jacket with slim fitting dresses so I can cover up the booty! I can’t believe I hadn’t thought of that haha.

    And those shoes – OMG! Those are killer!
