Best of: Contrast Trim

Every season, there are the big trends that every magazine seems to cover, like this season's bright pants and then there are the smaller trends that seem to emerge more quietly. When I was doing a bit of online window shopping this weekend, I happened to notice that contrasting trim was in many of the coats and jackets that I was seeing on my screen. It's a little bit of the popular preppy trend, but not quite as in-your-face as plaid, and to me, it looks so pulled together, and adds some interest to basic blazers and tops. Here are a few of my favorites I spotted: 

1. Hacking Jacket, $250, J.Crew
2. Alexa Chung x Madewell Ruby Jacket, $158
3. Sweater Blazer, $168, J.Crew
4. Streetscape Cape, $198, J.Crew
5. Silk Drafter's Blouse, $118, J.Crew
