Talk about a great style for the fickle weather this time of year! Jackie could easily go without the jacket if the sun was shining in the afternoon, but is nice and warm for chilly temps.

Jefferson University student Jackie styles her simple white turtleneck sweater with a black motorcycle jacket with silver zipper detailing, a pair of high-waisted light-wash denim jeans with distressed knees, and a pair of chunky-heeled booties.
