The One Piece You Need to Instantly Elevate an Outfit

Contrary to popular belief, cultivating great style doesn’t require a lot. And in some cases, the difference between an ordinary and top-notch outfit could be as little as one standout piece, such as a killer accessory, an exceptionally trendy piece, or, in this instance, a statement jacket.

Don’t believe us? Allow us to examine Olivia Palermo’s latest look, a go-to denim-on-denim combo. But it’s her above-average third piece (a cool jacquard jacket) that takes the outfit from an everyday uniform to an unexpectedly elevated night-out look. Get the effect yourself by investing in an eye-catching jacket to amp up your typical ensemble. We love anything in jacquard, à la Palermo, as well as embroidered bombers or sporty track jackets for spring.
