Collection Crush: Janessa Leone

The Casual Classic // Janessa Leone

I've never been a huge hat girl. I just don't have that thick, wavy hair that looks incredible under a wide brimmed hat (see above), but this fall, I've been leaning towards getting one of these felt beauties. I've accepted the fact that my hair won't look like the gorgeous model's above, but there are ways to wear your hair in a low bun underneath the hat (see here and here), that look chic and fabulous too. These hats are such a classic, investment piece, that you just can't go wrong. So, because of that, Janessa Leone is my collection crush of the week. Yes, the hats aren't cheap, but they are something you would have in your closet forever.

Acne Velocite Jacket

The Casual Classic // Life & Style Blog

The iconic Acne Velocite Jacket - another to die for closet staple that comes out year after year (if you can afford to drop a couple grand...). If I could, this jacket would be at the top of my list. It is absolutely dreamy. It looks like you could snuggle up and take a nap in it, and even though it is soft and cozy, it still makes a statement. This is the type of jacket you could put on with a t-shirt and jeans - let the jacket do the talking! A little style inspiration is below, in case you guys needed any more convincing... Can I have the white/grey one PLEASE!?
