This jacket has been mocking me for months. It sat in my closet, daring me to wear it, and frustrating me to no end as I kept trying it on with different things but nothing ever looked right! I even ordered several tops and dresses specifically for it, but to no avail. I finally marched into my closet this week, determined not to leave until I figured it out and the right solution was there all along: a top I've had for 8 years, my favorite skinny jeans, and two-toned mules. The even better part? We've got cold weather forecasted for the weekend so the timing is perfect. I'm glad I stuck with it and kept trying - this jacket looks super luxe (it was a great deal) and I really like the band jacket trend. Is this is a trend you would wear?
