What Can You Get for $70? Oh, Just This Chic, Cozy Winter Jacket

Jan/13/2014 at 06:00 AM ET

No, that’s not a typo. The jacket in the video below (which comes in cream, black and gray) really does cost 70 bucks with our exclusive discount code (enter STYLE15 at checkout). Check it out and scroll down to read all the reasons we love it.

So, here’s why this Olivaceous topper earned a spot in our closets:

1. It’s actually really warm. We’re used to wallet-friendly jackets being — how do we put this? — totally crappy and inefficient when it comes to protecting us from the elements. We’ve been wearing this one during this particularly bad N.Y.C. winter and we’ve got no complaints.

2. Stains somehow don’t show up on this jacket. Not even on the cream-colored one. Thank the textured bouclé material for that.

3. Two words: universally flattering.

4. You can wear it unzipped and with the collar folded down over a dress at work if you’re chilly and it doesn’t look like you’re all bundled up. But rather, the jacket almost passes for a chunky blazer.

5. Oh, did we mention? The jacket costs 70 bucks. Get one here before it sells out.

Meet the Moto-Sweatshirt (It's a Real Thing and Every Woman Should Own One)

Dec/30/2013 at 06:00 AM ET

Two trends have been everywhere this year: zip-up leather toppers (see: here, here and here) and fancy sweatshirts (see: here, here and every staffer at People StyleWatch on a Friday). Well, those two of-the-moment tops have combined forces to create the moto-sweatshirt — and we might never take it off.

As always, if you’re a first-time Joyus shopper and you enter STYLE15 at checkout, you can get this Blank NYC jacket for 83 bucks.

The story in the video (about this editor spotting a woman on the subway platform wearing this zip-up, running over to her and asking where she got it) is totally true. It was love at first sight — and our obsession hasn’t waned since.

We’re wearing ours with black pencil skirts and tucked-in tees, as well as on the weekends with jeans. And the design fitted enough that you can wear it under a faux fur vest or a warm winter jacket.

If you were lucky enough to be gifted cash over the holidays, we’d highly recommend unloading some of it on this Blank NYC jacket-meets-sweatshirt. You’ll wear it all winter and through this spring. Then when you break out the top again next fall and realize it’s a classic enough style that it’ll never go out of fashion, you’ll be so glad you ordered one.

At Least Sixteen Stars Love This Jacket. Let's Find Out Why.

There are some items of clothing that become instant classics in Hollywood, popping up on nearly every starlet around. For a while, it was this sweater. Then there was the Christian Louboutin “So Kate” pump. Everyone has a pair of J Brands. And to that list, we can add the Rebecca Minkoff “Becky” blazer, which counts at least 14 stars among its celebrity fans.

The blazer, a perennial staple in Minkoff’s ready-to-wear collections, typically comes in silk in a variety of colors (from black to melon orange to floral print), though occasionally Minkoff offers it in leather or sequin (as seen on Kaley Cuoco, second from right above). Its got a flattering, flowy silhouette that gives a girlie edge to jeans or leather pants and a tougher edge to more feminine outfits. And it’s versatile — it’s lightweight enough for the summer but structured enough for the winter. It’s not hard to see why it’s such a hit with practically every star we’ve got a style crush on.

Fans of the “Becky” include (above, from left) Olivia Palermo, Nikki Reed, Dakota Johnson, Cuoco and Lucy Hale, all of whom have put their own unique spin on the blazer. They join a list that also includes Anna Kendrick, Kristen Stewart, Jessica Alba, Shay Mitchell, Kim Kardashian and many more — though just that sample gives an idea of the diverse styles of the stars who dig this jacket.

Have you tried it on or do you own one of Minkoff’s star-loved blazers? How do you style it? What’s the go to piece in your wardrobe?

If You've Always Wanted to Wear a Sweatsuit to Work, You've Gotta See This

Nov/04/2013 at 06:00 AM ET

How psyched are we that sweatshirt dresses are officially a thing? Very. Because, really, what’s better than going to the office or even on a date wearing something as comfy as pajamas? That’s why we hunted down the perfect cozy and stretchy yet polished and flattering dress. Watch the video to find out why we think every woman should own it.

The Collective Concepts dress is under 55 bucks (if you use the code STYLE15 — for first-time Joyus.com shoppers).

We tested it out on a bunch of different body types at the PeopleStyleWatch.com and Joyus.com offices so we’re confident that it’s gonna look awesome on you. Dress it up with a thin gold belt and a statement necklace (as this editor does in the video) or wear it with tights, riding boots and a blazer. Or solo — it looks really put-together even on its own.

Really, there’s no wrong way to wear this dress. Yes, you could even wear it to bed if you really wanted to.

Oct/14/2013 at 06:00 AM ET

It doesn’t matter how many coats you already own. If a chic tweed topper with edgy faux leather detailing and an insanely flattering silhouette isn’t hanging in your closet, you are not ready for fall. And now you can get your hands on one for less than a hundred bucks. (And we’re speaking from experience when we say that no quality is sacrificed. It’s as cozy and well-made as jackets four times the price.)
