LOFT Field Jacket ($98)

LOFT is one of my go-to shops for inexpensive pieces.  The secret to finding good things there is to choose wisely.  Feel the weight of the fabric, look at the seams, examine the hardware, if things feel cheap, walk away.  Sometimes, I have to leave cute things on the rack, but I still find pieces that I love.

Jackets & Blazers. This field jacket has a great fitted look.  I also like the simple pocket and zipper details.  This slouchy blazer comes in three colors and is perfect for the office or your off hours.  Looking for a denim jacket?  This one has a great style and is a good shade of blue–not too dark, not too light.

Sweaters. I still love this dolman sleeve sweater in pale grey.  I love that this ribbed, open-knit sweater is a little longer in the back.  It’s more flattering for those of us with hips, but it’s cute on everyone.  Their basic cotton cardigan comes in seven colors.

Skirts & Dresses. This sheer stripe dress is perfect for cocktail parties, dinners or a winter wedding.  Such a great pick for under-$100.  This curvy-fit pencil skirt comes in three colors–the deep plum is my favorite–and is available in tall and petite.

Belts. LOFT has a number of inexpensive belts.  This simple skinny belt is a great basic.  I loved this buckle-less so much, I bought both colors.  This leopard belt is also a nice choice.

    Great picks! But i’ve noticed my basic cardigans from Loft have not been lasting very long. I wish the sheer striped dress came in other colors! I’d love it in a dark jewel tone. I always buy so much black, I need to restrain myself from buying another LBD.
