there has been no lack of rain or chilly temps here in georgia. so it’s time to bundle up! one coat i always have on hand to battle damp and cold weather is a quilted field jacket. it’s as warm as it is stylish. the first quilted jacket came into existence in the mid-’60’s thanks to an american living in england. mr. guylas introduced a quilted vest in a timeless palette of olive and navy for hunting expeditions. the vest would allow freedom of movement while keeping the wearer’s body warm. the vest became so popular that a jacket soon followed. when the queen of england was spotted wearing a field jacket with a brown corduroy collar while riding celebrities soon followed suit. an iconic jacket was born.

 it’s easy to see why this jacket is suited for inclement weather as the outer shell is splash proof. barbour, burberry, and ralph lauren always have a quilted field jacket in their inventory. but there are lower priced brands that trot out field jackets year after year. today’s ootd sports a traditional olive green jacket from ralph lauren. faux leather pants similar here last seen here and a color-block cashmere sweater that’s been on style repeat all month long here and here are the perfect companions. durable frye boots and handbag keep the outfit casual yet classic.

    Nice jacket–I like the leather trim. I’m a sucker for olive greens–they really are year-round appropriate, but fabulous for this time of year and transitioning weather. Stay toasty–my son says Boston is bacing for a snow storm that’s supposed to fizzle to icy rain later. Brrrrrr…

    • the northeast is bracing for a storm. my guy is battening down the hatches in nyc! it’s cold here but thankfully no snow. that’s the best part of living here in my humble opinion. xo
