While cropped, short sleeve, and light weight coats may seem counter productive they can be warm and chic. Especially this time of year, when the temperatures shift daily. We found a few styles in punchy colors and patterns perfect for heading into the office.
Cropped and swing jackets are ideal for layering over bulky sweaters. Floral brocade, Women’s shoes & accessories: Kensie Floral Tapestry Swing Jacket – Black mix, or wool plaid and velvet trimmed SWING COAT, feel luxurious and professional. We also like the more tailored version in this red herringbone BB Dakota Stanwyck Coat. Black on black piecing details are fashionable and chic for the office in this Cropped leather & suede jacket.
Longer trench styling with wide three quarter sleeves are great with dresses and skirts. Try long gloves when you wear short sleeves under these coats. Wool swing coat feels fresh in bright raspberry and over-sized Plaid Wool Coat.
For casual office outfits right through the weekend, take the bright raspberry into a bomber style coat from New York & Company Women’s Wool Blend Bomber Jacket – Green, Brown, Pink, Black. Another options is Women’s shoes & accessories: MM Couture Red Checker Jacket – Red belted at the waist with cuffed sleeves and warm hood.
We love wearing these styles of jackets and coats before the temps drop below freezing. They’re also great to travel with when your not sure what the climate has in store. Shop now before winter hits and enjoy the bright colors and trendy patterns in a cropped coat.
