There were fewer coats and more jackets this year. It was good to see roomy coat styles, because those are the only silhouettes that work over chunky and fashionably oversized knitwear. It’s getting harder and harder to wear a tailored coat with tailored outfits being less fashionable than they used to be. The ease and comfort of the fluid and oversized fit has taken the world by storm and there’s no stopping the trend. 

But the highlight in toppers this year was vests. There was a wide assortment across casual and dressy styles. For the first time ever, they were popular with my clients and it was fun to see them add them to their wardrobes. Many of them can be worn right away — in the office or when we have a cooler Summer Seattle day.
