Hug Winters in Jackets
“Charlotte: Imagine, being blind and not being able to see a beautiful day like today. Can you think of anything worse?
Anthony: Stonewashed jeans and a matching jacket.” – Sex and the City
This is how important the right jacket can be for that oh-so stunning look. A jacket is not just a hip- or waist-length garment for the upper body; it is the staple diet for every fashionistas’ appetite. Winters have an eclectic charm that exudes class and sophistication. Team it up with piping hot café mocha and the perfect jacket to experience sheer opulence.
Here is an updated Jacket-Style Guide to make sure you melt a dozen hearts this winter.
The Boyfriend Jacket-
They came into the limelight in the 1980’s but their versatility still sees them hitting the oomphmeter with élan. Pair them with jeans, trousers or a fitted pencil skirt. Add an oversized slouchy bag and a chunky necklace and you are all set to go casual-trendy.
They started out as a basic flight jacket to be originally worn by pilots but the possibility of their stylish variations could not keep the trend-guru’s at bay. It is the most functional cover-up with a straight-fit dress and slim jeans. Take off with panache!
From rock to edgy- feminine to bohemian, military jackets are back with a bang. Wear it with skinny pants, killer heels and a no-nonsense attitude. You have full support from the fashion troops!
They have been earmarked as a prominent trend for the season. The combination fit-and-flare look gives the illusion of curves and flatters many body types. Keep the lowers well-fitted and clickety-clack like a diva.
Bolero jackets are pacing the fashion radar with lightning speed. They are short jackets that usually stop just below the bust line. Jazz it with your favourite turtleneck, a pair of pencil jeans tucked into splendid boots and you are ready to rule the fashion bandwagon.
Cute, comfortable and chic- cropped jackets are here to stay. Pastel colours, crazy prints, shorts and high boots should do the trick. Stop some traffic!
The Motorcycle Jacket-
They are an urban fashion essential for every cool girl’s wardrobe. High heels, skinny jeans and a pretty blouse will be the best partners in crime. Choose your victim!
