Tan Wool Jacket + Striped Sweater with Plaid scarf & jeans

Nothing says fall like getting your hands a great wool jacket. When you find a great wool jacket, it is so much fun to add layers to it. Time and time again, Banana Republic continues to wow its customers with classic, timeless pieces. This camel melton wool short trench is no exception.

I am one of those girls who is cold-all the time! I am one of those girls who wears layers all year round. Needless to say, this jacket is great for layering and has kept me warm. I love the collar of this look because it gives an illusion of a taller neckline. I also love the belt of this jacket. It gives a flirty, hourglass silhouette. This jacket is offers high versatility for all of your special events or even a night out.

I am wearing this melton short trench in petite size 2. The length of this jacket also makes it a great piece to pair with a high-waisted pants or skirt. While this jacket is able to keep me warm it is also very light. I have also been using it in place of a blazer at work. Since the jacket is made of out wool, it is a piece that needs to be dry cleaned.



I chose to layer my jacket with a  striped pulled over sweater in size S from Target. For an extra layer of warm, I also layered my look with blanket scarf (also from Target). The jeans that I have on are from Express. I am wearing them in a size 2. I am also wearing BP botties in 6 size (if you have a wide foot, defintely got for half a size up). This is a fun, classic look that you ae going to want to wear and restyle all year-long.
