Five for Friday: Cool-Girl Coats and Jackets to Keep You Looking Hot

Affiliate Disclosure Statement

So, this cold front, you guys. It’s cold, isn’t it? I swear I moved to Texas to try to get away from the cold, but it’s following me. And what are you supposed to do if one of these jerk cold fronts come in just in time for what you thought was going to be a temperate autumn wedding? Well, you get a rad cover-up, that’s what. Sure, jackets or nice sweaters can be an investment — but it’s just that: An investment. If you spend a little money on a good piece, then it should last a while. And whenever you wear it, you’ll likely think back to your wedding, which is like a double-plus bonus. So for this Five for Friday, I hunted down five smokin’ hot jackets, coats and sweaters to keep you looking cool on your wedding day and all these beauties clock in at under $120.

Classic blazer. Not-so-classic cut. This would be so great with a ballgown or A-line dress. Bonus if the dress has a ton of sparklez.
