Cloaked in Style

Jacket. Coat. Parka. Hoodie. Shell. Cloak. Wrap. Blazer. Windbreaker. The sheer number of words referring to a person’s outer garment reflects the variety of ways these are used. From bulky layers to beat the cold to sharp suit separates that add formality, outerwear plays countless roles in the fashion world. But regardless of the name – or use – jackets are essential when the Panhandle’s winter winds begin to howl and the snow begins to flurry. With cold fronts threatening to the north, we put together three styles appropriate for women (casual, work day, and evening wear), along with something for the guys. Now you can stay warm and look good.
