Helene Berman Ikat Jacquard Coat
Let’s just start with the fact that this coat looks about 100 times better in person. This weekend, on the way to my regular spa appointment, I stopped in the San Francisco Nordstrom to see what’s new. I found this stunner on the clearance rack. As soon as I tried it on, I knew it was a must-have.

I wish I could do this jacket justice with words. The fit is oversized, but slimmer at the bottom than the top when buttoned. The collar pops up a bit, which paired with the bracelet sleeves creates a cool retro vibe. The fabric is a beautifully woven jacquard, which is heavy enough to look clearly upscale, but not too heavy for spring wear.

It’s easy to see how this jacket will pair well with dressier pieces, but I think wearing it with casual items will make it really shine. I tried it on with skinny jeans, a simple v-neck tee, and flats, and this jacket instantly made the whole look pull together. Jeans and a tee are perfect for spring, and the coat is roomy enough to wear over a sweater for fall.
