Casual Couture Jacket - This might just become your favorite jacket!. It is the perfect piece to add to your wardrobe and depending on where you live you might even wear it for all four seasons!

I originally developed this garment for wearing to hot and humid climates. The combination of fabric and construction technique mininmizes heat absorption and radiation.

A light weight cotton boucle is used and is open at the front for maximum ventilation. However, the fabric has sufficient body to keep its form without help from any type of closure.

The jacket has a hybrid formal/casual application and can be worn from the office to an evening event or paired with jeans.
