I love that you can wear all different types of jackets in the spring as opposed to the heavy down coats that we usually have to sport in the dead of winter here in Chicago.  The anorak is a favorite of mine because it can be worn rain or shine. Most of the time you see women wearing them in casual looks with jeans and a t-shirt.  I thought I would change it up a bit and throw it over a body con dress.  It’s the perfect item to wear when you want to look polished but with an informal feel. I think it also adds a little bit of edge. What do you think? Feel free to mix casual with dressy sometimes.  The outcome can be beautiful and interesting.  Here are some of my favorite anoraks of the season.  Welcome to Spring!
