STYLE TIPS: HOW TO STYLE A BARN JACKET
I recently discovered this display at Nordstrom, and I asked a young sales associate to show me where the jacket was located.
She said, “Oh, the barn jackets are over here…..”
A barn jacket is defined as,
“an informal style of jacket originally designed for doing rough work outside, made of strong material that protects the wearer against rain, often brown or black in color, and with a layer of warm material inside: The candidate swapped his gray suit and tie for khakis and a barn coat.”
During the pandemic, The Wall Street Journal wrote that the barn jacket had been a staple for hunters, farmers, and politicians, but during a time when fashion trended more casual the barn jacket style, previously made famous by J.Crew, was growing in popularity with city and suburban women.
I personally enjoyed wearing barn jackets last year during colder weather times with my jeans.
I have two…one in military green, and one in gold. I was known to dress them up or down.
This jacket is from Free People and is the Madison City Twill Jacket.
You see it hear on the display styled with joggers, a sweater and boots. A very stylish look, not necessarily for outdoor labor!
However, when searching other barn jackets currently on the market, I found a variety of different jackets.
Here are a few:
When considering how to style a barn jacket, tell us if you would wear it for outdoor casual, or style it for a fun stylish outfit.
Would you go with a fashionable boot like you see here, or a more casual boot or shoe?
Where would you most likely wear a barn jacket?
Also, remember if you would not wear what you see on the display, then tell us how you would style it for someone else.
Pretend like a friend just asked…How would you style a barn jacket?
