6 Jackets I've Got the Hots for

With a Winter that officially started less than a month ago, I'm just starting to eye some jackets to help keep me warm for the season - and of course some that are cuter than they are practical.

I'm notorious for living in baggy, grandma knits (one old navy jacket in particular), so it is about time that I add a jacket to my collection that doesn't include braided knit plaits. 

I've been extremely attracted to moto jackets and all of it's variations, as well as the classic riding jacket. There's something fun about an exaggerated lapel, a mix of fabrics and textures, and unique cuts. Here are 6 jackets I'd like to have in my closet.

Vanessa Bruno Athe | $330.00 on sale
Love that this is a moto cut tweed jacket. 

H&M | $59.95
It's killing me how much I love the fact that this is an army style parka with leather sleeves, comfy yet edgy.

H&M | $49.95
Can't go wrong with a black faux leather biker jacket!

Tiger of Sweden | $299.99 on sale
Peplum + Leather + Moto Style Zipper Enclosure = Perfection

Paul Smith | $731 on sale
I'm enamored by this front open cut which is truer to the actual riding jacket - how unique!

Jack Wills | $149 on sale
Notice when you click through, that the lining on the back of the collar is pink! (Dying of cuteness)

Considering my real life budget, I'm contemplating on purchasing the H&M olive jacket with leather sleeves and the Jack Wills riding jacket. Such great jackets to wear all year long :)

Which jacket is your favorite?
