Fall Fashion Must-Have Jackets

Studio Style by Anita Gunn

When you’re working in Hollywood like I do, there is pressure to look cool and ahead of the curve – even if you’re not a star. At the movie studio where I work, everyone is always trying to out hip everyone else. But who can afford to buy a new wardrobe every season? And with trends coming and going, buying trendy items is not exactly a great investment. Fortunately, in Hollywood, I get to dress more casually. So my suggestions below will work for your casual Fridays or date night.

My goal is to help you take what you already have in your closet and then add key pieces to will update what you already have, without spending an arm and a leg.

This week we’re going to talk about how to wear your summer dress into fall by pairing it with a cool denim jacket.

Here are some jacket styles that work really well. All these are under $200 and available at Free People.












Try a moto style jacket with patriotic sleeves. It’s perfect over a simple beige or black dress that you already own.













This cropped style jacket looks perfect over a flowy floral dress or skirt.














A neutral color jacket with fun details over a maxi skirt and tank top is classically elegant.

Or try a longer denim jacket, which is perfect for updating a floral maxi summer dress. 

Anita Gunn

California PolitiChick "Anita Gunn" is a closeted conservative working the entertainment business. Anita started at a major talent agency, assisting a well-known music agent, and is now a VP at a major movie studio. Anita grew up in a very liberal Jewish home, and bought the Utopian dream of a one world government and social justice for all. Anita did her best to "save the planet," pontificating about how the evil Republicans and greedy corporations were destroying the earth. 9/11 shook Anita's foundation and everything that she believed. By the time Obama burst into the scene in 2007, Anita was morphing into a conservative. Of course, coming out of the closet as a conservative in the entertainment industry is pretty much career suicide, she says, so in 2011, the name "Anita Gunn" was born. Anita has done commentary about the culture war on such radio shows as the Dr. Gina Show, Real Side with Joe Messina and Socialism is not an Option on Blog Talk Radio. Anita started a secret conservative Facebook group which has 1000 active members, and is part of another secret group of artists who behind such videos as Cruz Against the Machine. There are still some remnants from Anita's liberal days, including the love of Astrology and wearing platforms and bellbottoms--and yet signs of her conservative switch can be seen by her ever-present gun necklace. Anita says her goal is to help rebrand and hip up the conservative movement to include more artists, musicians, actors, gays and minorities and young people. Anita's belief is that if she saw the light, there are others who would also embrace the conservative movement, if only just shown the way. Follow Anita Gunn on Twitter @AnitaGunn1.
