A barn jacket can be any rugged outdoors jacket that offers protection from cold and dirty farm work. Usually made of canvas, these jackets can be padded for extra warm and often feature many pockets for useful storage. Sold in innumerable different colors, the classic khaki tone matches perfectly with jeans and fall boots and fits in both in the country and in the city.

Bomber Jacket

Similarly, the bomber jacket has a history for both warm and pocket availability. Pilots in cramped spaces would benefit from easy to access sleeve pockets, and the style can be pulled off casually or dressed up. Different patterns and accents can set you apart from the traditional waterproof nylon.

Traditionally plain or simply patterned, scarves not only provide warmth during the cold months but also serve as an excellent statement piece for any outfit. A powerful creative medium for any fashion designer, scarves give a muted outfit some spice.

Just as scarves can accent an otherwise plain outfit, belts serve a greater purpose than holding loose fitting pants up or holding a coat closed. Belts are popular products from fashion giants such as Louis Vuitton and Fendi, who draw attention to logo buckles at the front and interesting patterns all around the body.
