A New Crop of Jackets

I love the recent retro-esque style of boxy cropped jackets with elbow- or 3/4-length sleeves. I can't help but be reminded of a favorite item from my Barbie's wardrobe, a brown wool cropped jacket with elbow-length full sleeves and a wide stand-up collar. Very 60s, amazing with a pencil skirt and pillbox hat. And elbow-length gloves, of course. Today, it would be mixed with a longer top and skinny pants.

Here are some of my favorite modern versions, in no particular order.
