When I initially saw this velvet jacket at the Nordstrom Anniversary sale I thought “band geek meets Michael Jackson.” But as I learned when I bought my favorite prom dress and my wedding gown: always take it off the hangar, Emily. Thank you 17 year-old self for learning this lesson. I can’t wait to wear this jacket all through the fall, especially paired with leather skinnies for date night. (Yowza!) FYI it runs a little small, I recommend sizing up. Tell me about your favorite dramatic closet staples in the comments below!
