Gazing out onto an increasingly sunny weekend morning I thought I would provide some alternatives to the cardigan you purchased from Country Road in 1998 and by now should really have found its way to a Salvos bin.
The tailored jacket is out and proud and I for one am thrilled! Jackets and blazers provide women with shape and an air of elegance. Team them with tailored pants, a full or A-line skirt or even a pair of jeans and ankle boots for a smart casual look. As an added bonus, these little miracles are truly trans-seasonal. On days you feel the chill, pop a fine piece of knitwear underneath and a beautiful scarf on top. On warmer days, go casual with a simple singlet under your latest purchase.
Because most of us have the traditional black jacket hiding somewhere in our wardrobes, I thought I would bring you some alternatives:
Thurley is a great brand for well-made, fashion forward items. Classic tailoring with a twist thanks to fun patterns and edgy cuts.

Those looking for classic black with a bit of a pop, you might enjoy Paul Smith's latest offering.

Shove that horrid cardi in the bin, grab your wallet and a friend and head out to find your new jacket. Trust me, it's worth it.
