The Range: Field Jackets

Apr 1, 2020

I have a favorite jacket.  It’s the LL Bean Classic Utility Jacket (also in petite and plus).  I’ve been wearing it on all of my walks during this period of self-isolation.  So much so that I’m looking for a second utility jacket with a rougher look — bigger pockets, more slouch, a visible zipper.

    These are fantastic. Love a field jacket (especially the LL Bean one), largely because of you! If it’s okay, I’d like to add an unconventional option for any of your readers with long arms or a tighter budget – I bought this Old Navy jacket to give as a gift last year but ended up keeping it for myself: https://oldnavy.gap.com/browse/product.do?pid=448639002. It has the slouchy look you’re talking about but also has a tie so you can cinch the waist, which makes it surprisingly flattering. The pockets are unbelievable (compared to women’s jackets!), and the sleeves look great down or rolled up. It has a little bit of stretch, too, and it’s on sale now for about $40 – might be a good budget option to consider :).

      Thanks for sharing this! It’s so easy to ignore the Men’s section, even though they have tons of great, slouchy styles for a fraction of the cost. I find myself stealing my husband’s clothes yet never think to gravitate outside of the Women’s section when shopping for myself.

    I love this! I resisted jean and utility jackets for so long in the early-mid 2010s because I kept seeing the really fitted ones, and it seemed a little too precious. The more slouchy look is on trend for now.

The Range: Eyelet Tops for Summer

Airy eyelet fabrics are one of my favorite spring/summer looks. White is, of course, the traditional fabric. But white is tough to wear when you have a toddler, so let’s go with navy this summer.
