I’m Really Feeling Horsey Jackets Right Now

This cute photo of Diana Spencer in 1975 with her pal Lucy Coats, (fitting name!) is making me want to rock a simple shetland-y sweater, classic jeans, and the kind of outerwear usually associated with hanging out in countryside stables (even though the closest I get to is a gander at the occasional cop on horseback).

This reversible piece from Madewell is a bit more like a military liner, but it’s still got that hanging-in-the-barn appeal.

I’m obsessing over this insulated 100% organic cotton Patagonia barn jacket that transforms into a vest, that would so perfectly countrify jeans and heeled boots.

Barbour’s quilted number is a true classic, and feels a little more polished in black.

Burberry’s version is a splurge, but the cute bomber shape is too good to ignore.I had to include L.L. Bean’s classic vest whose vibe is not unlike Diana’s! Makes a great under layer in the winter, too.

This All Saints jacket is a bit more London than Cotswolds, but I really like it!

J. Crew’s jacket comes in three good shades and is lined in a pretty Liberty print.

Another goodie from J. Crew is this corduroy-trimmed quilted piece.

L.L. Bean’s classic barn jacket is water-resistant and lined with Thinsulate which makes it work way into the colder months.

  1. Pro tip on buying a waxed (not the quilted) Barbour jacket: I bought a used one on eBay; I was going to re-wax it myself but when I went to buy the wax at an Orvis near me, the folks at Orvis said they would send in my Barbour jacket for a professional re-waxing for a modest fee. I told them I didn’t buy the jacket from Orvis, and they said it didn’t matter. I definitely saved a few hundred dollars doing it this way, and Barbour jackets last forever!!!
