Stylewise BlazersEvery year, the day after Thanksgiving, the US observes Black Friday—also known as the busiest shopping day in America. Here in the Philippines, that would probably be the day before Christmas, so we still have a month to go before the mayhem. I think it pays to make your list and check it twice way before the eleventh hour, don’t you? So let me just put this out there: I need a new jacket!

Lately, I’ve been captivated by Emmanuelle Alt, the editor-in-chief of French Vogue who has always done the opposite of what most fashion editors are known for—she wears the same thing over and over and over again! I call it her “uniform,” and it’s chic and straightforward: T-shirt, cigarette pants, high heels, barely-there makeup, and a rotating collection of timeless blazers which I am dying to have for myself.

As you may have already guessed, the jackets are my favorite part of her outfits. She favors them in the mainstay colors that you would come across in any closet (click!): black, white, charcoal, and navy; leather when it’s the right season. Her coats are classic and versatile, made for every day-to-night affair ever. But above all, they’re tailored to perfection—slim-fitting and effortlessly sleek—and that’s what’s got me hooked.

In a sea of exaggerated outfits and not-quite-appropriate skin-show, Emmanuelle Alt’s never-changing look seems so fresh to me—because, in a word, she simplifies. I know I told everyone I prefer dresses to pants and that still holds true, even though I think she looks fabulous in hers. But as for those coats? I would wear them every day for the rest of my life (if the rest of my life could be lived out in the –ber months!).

So, can anyone tell me where to get myself an Emmanuelle Alt-ish jacket? Somewhere in the world, it’s Black Friday, after all—there’s no better day to get cracking on my wish list!
