It's not a new look per se, but the jacket-artfully-draped-across-the-shoulders look has become quite the go-to outerwear styling technique for street stylers this Fall. Spotted frequently in and around NYFW headquarters (er, Lincoln Center) and on the streets of London, this slightly devil-may-care take on how not to wear a jacket properly can be interpreted one of two ways. To some, it's a nod to chic irreverence, a perfectly "undone" way of dressing. Plus, we can't help but think there's something so classic to its polished and slung-just-so silhouette, especially after seeing the likes of Lily Kwong, Miroslava Duma, and Joanna Hillman sporting the trend. To others, it's fashion without functionality, rendering the look both a strange balancing act and a useless method of keeping warm. Where do you find yourself in this latest styling debate? Will you be draping your jacket or giving this fad the cold shoulder?
