Perfect Layering Item: A Shell Jacket

What could be better than a light-weight shell jacket for spring. It’s the ultimate layering piece, can be rolled up and tucked in your bag when the temperature rises, many are waterproof, and right now it comes in lots of great colors—I’m in!

  • Great concept but I never look as tidy or chic in a shell as I hope I will.

  • All great and would get the Prada if I thought I’d ever see rain again…

  • I love outerwear of all kinds, but I have to agree with Karen – shell jackets and mid-length shell coats (drawstring, zippers, nylon) feel very athleisure to me and as though I’m on my way to a sporting event.

  • Agree with the comments above. While i like the concept I can never quite pull the look off.

  • Theory has a great one too! One in nylon and also in leather.

  • I can’t pull of this look without looking as I am going to workout or do a sport! Besides it rarely warm enough in London to just put on a shell.
