Every once in a while an article of clothing comes along that is so necessary, you simply can’t ignore it. Usually that item is practical, sometimes it’s chic and rarely is it different. Veronica Beard accomplishes all of this and then some with her line of layered blazers in stores right now. I first spotted one in the San Fransisco Neiman Marcus. I tried it on, decided $750 ish was too steep for this particular item and walked away. Then it started following me. I hate it when that happens. I rationalize myself out of a purchase and then the stalking begins. I’m not stalking the item. The item is stalking me. If you’re a shopper, you can identify with what I’m talking about. It’s that feeling when you contemplate buying something, don’t buy it, but then think about it nonstop until you have no choice than to let it into your life. Once the item is yours, the world is a better place and you can resume with your regularly scheduled activities…and hopefully wear the hell out of it.
This jacket appeared everywhere I went, however I never saw anyone wearing it. I was confused but also excited. Could i be the first to discover the sickest most versatile piece for fall?! Finally at Kirna Zabete in Soho, I couldn’t take it any longer. A friend picked it up, tried it on and before she could say two words, I was at the register. I bought my first Veronica Beard Dickey Jacket.
The beauty of this coat lies in the fit and versatility. Each jacket comes with a removable dickey, which can change the vibe of the coat as well as add warmth for the cooler months. You also have the option to purchase the various dickey’s on their own and incorporate them into your blazer. A mix and match option if you will. While you could always attain this look simply by layering your own hoody or light puffer vest under a blazer, the fit of the Veronica Beard jacket brings the look to the next level. I am beyond impressed with the tailoring and quality. So, in short… get one now. If you are able, get two and if you get three… i hate you. Just kidding, I love you, but share.
- A false shirtfront.
- A word that feels like it should be vulgar but is not, so therefore fun to say out loud
Shop these jackets to your heart’s content below and in my shop my favorite’s section of the site on the right hand side bar. The images I chose showcase the designing team behind the brand who happen to share a last name. It is more than clear that these sisters in-law are killing the game.
