The all-pur­pose jacket. Boyfriend-sized, with sub­stan­tial shoul­ders, it’s the thing to throw over ev­ery­thing.

From the mid-1980s to the early 1990s, the one thing that most women re­lied on to go from ca­sual to dressed in zero was a jacket. Boyfriend-sized, with big shoul­ders, and ei­ther sin­gleor dou­ble-breasted, it was the throw-on so­lu­tion for al­most ev­ery sit­u­a­tion: “I need to look pre­sentable.” Throw on a jacket. “I look crap.” Throw on a jacket. “The dress now looks wrong.” A jacket can help. “I wanna look like a pop star.” Here you go, a jacket. That jacket is back. And it’s as use­ful and pur­pose­ful as it was 31 years ago.
