It seems the most common ways to wear these lightweight flowy jackets is with a pair of skinny or boyfriend jeans as well as shorts. Remember to keep the top you wear underneath more fitted rather than too loose or boxy so you don't end up looking bulky on top.

As you can see, this would be one of those pieces you can wear both casually or dressy depending on the occasion. There are quite a few options out there for really reasonable prices so you need not feel guilty about the cost vs. wear aspect. Here are some other great options for $30 or less.
While I don't personally have one of these eye-catching jackets, I really like the look of them as a focus piece of an outfit & am not opposed to owning one. How about you, are you a part of this trend?
