open-front blazer from Forever 21. I wanted a hot-pink jacket, and while there are many luxe options out there, like this gorgeous Rag & Bone tuxedo jacket ($500, ouch!), I decided I didn't want to invest in something that could potentially have a short shelf-life. All things considered, it's a pretty nice jacket for $30: For polyester, it's rather light and airy, with a fluid fit, and, perhaps most shocking, it's fully lined. The color is bright (it also comes in a more subdued pink), but it makes me happy and totally perks up whatever you're wearing, whether it's a dress or a T-shirt and cutoffs. I've gotten my fix, but instead of going on a bender, I'll appreciate this jacket for what it is: a fleeting high.
