Houndstooth Knit Jacket – Sophisticated with Jeans

As we head into fall, the easiest way to dress up a pair of jeans and a top is to add a third piece – a jacket. Here’s a beautiful statement jacket that will wake up your wardrobe but that’s very comfy too.

I love wearing a jacket with jeans to give me a polished look, but many jackets can feel a little too structured or stiff. Not this one. This chic little number is a knit jacket. It’s thick and soft with a menswear-inspired vibe. It feels like a sweater, but it looks like a jacket.

This knit jacket is such an iconic look. The high-contrast black and white houndstooth print adds a dramatic punch to your outfit, and the Chanel-inspired shape is striking. Yes, this jacket is technically on the boxy side, but it doesn’t look or feel shapeless. It’s got more of a semi-slim cut that I find very flattering.

I love the relaxed look and feel of the jacket – collarless, no buttons, just that gorgeous black trim frayed edge trim. It’s perfect for layering with a thin sweater or a soft, silky tee. This cloud-white sweater is also a fabulous piece. It’s light and peaceful, with delicate buttons up the wrist.

Skinny, slightly distressed jeans are a great way to show off the jacket, but for a dressier look, you could also wear this with black jeans. This jacket would also look great with bootcut jeans too.

How do you like my shoes?

Black chain mules

I’ve noticed that black mules with a gold or silver chain are a big trend this fall. It makes sense because we are all pretty much at home or not going far. These shoes are flat and comfy but a step up from slippers!

The pointy toes make your legs look longer,  which I always appreciate when wearing flats ( I like to look as tall as I can). The gold chain detail ties into the Chanel feel of this look and makes it feel high-end. These shoes sell fast,  but I’ve linked a similar black mule.
