Sometimes it’s the details that make the difference between meh and must-have. Case in point: Burberry’s wool-blend twill jacket. It’s a bomber shape (hard to get more classic than that), but designer Christopher Bailey has played with proportion just enough to make it feel completely fresh. Add subtle zigzag stitching on the placket and black edging on a field of navy and you’ve got a winner in my book. Of course, there’s no way this thing can cut a Chicago winter (it’s technically outerwear), but who cares? I’d sport it as an indoor jacket over a crisp white shirt and black skinny pants—and smugly tell anyone who wants to crank down the thermostat to go right ahead.
