The classic Chanel jacket
On the top of my wish list for fall – a boucle jacket. The word may not be familiar to you, but you’d know the jacket style and fabric if you saw it. Classic Chanel jackets are often boucle! A special type of yarn, boucle often resembles tweed and has one thread looser than the others producing a rough textured cloth. It is unbelievably classy, elegant, and yes, a little traditional. But recently, designers have been doing the classic fabric in updated cuts like moto jackets – I adore this new spin on it.
Throw one of these jackets on over a loose t-shirt and you can give it an edgy dressed down look – not the matching suit and skirt version of the older ladies from the Upper East Side in New York. Updated, modern, and such a unique fabric – I am in love! These are a few of my favorite ways to wear boucle this fall…a moto jacket in snowy white from Rebecca Taylor, a fun vest from Scotch and Soda, and a dressier jacket with a tuxedo collar from Maison Scotch. Hint, hint: Rebecca Taylor is the Queen of To-Die-For boucle jackets.
