In the early fall, finding the right jacket can be a challenge. These olive-green field jackets were super trendy three years ago, but unlike many trends, this one had staying power.
This LL Bean Classic Utility Jacket ($89) is a wardrobe essential. I wear mine with jeans and sweaters, over workout clothes when I walk the dogs, or with a nice blouse and trousers for a casual business look. The key to choosing a great jacket is to choose one in a mid-hip length with a defined waist.
LL Bean has an incredible selection of styles and weights at affordable prices. They offer a waxed field jacket, a flannel-lined utility jacket, and a sherpa-lined jacket. All of these styles also come in petite. The flannel-lined jacket also comes in plus-sizes.
