I've just recently discovered how important a topper is to refining my style. So far, my favorites are: 1) a nip-waist cropped black INC lightweight jacket that's good for spring and cool summer; 2) a black nip-waist cropped ponte jacket; 3) a black nip-waist blazer-style ponte jacket; 4) a denim jacket; 5) a utility jacket; 6) a black knit moto vest.

I'm curious to know what toppers are your MVPs, and would especially love to hear from those with a more urban, edgy, arty style (similar to my own aspirational style). I'd also love to get ideas for non-black toppers that are at least somewhat urban and edgy.

ETA: I know this is asking a lot and you certainly don't have to do this, but any photos or links you have to your MVPs (or similar style) would help me greatly since I'm a visual person. Again, not necessary and only if you're so inclined. Thank you!

(I added photos below of my first 3 faves. The INC jacket is similar in style to the one I have but not the exact one. Mine is made of a more lightweight fabric -- and I cut the ruffle off of it.)
