Jackets and Blazers a Modern Woman Needs in Her Closet
Before you know it, you would have to pack your bikinis and tank tops away and start embracing the sweater weather. We are not yet ready to cover our bodies in knits yet, so let us enjoy the colder months in more trendy jackets and blazers! Anyway, they’re warm enough while looking chic and trendy.
Power dressing enthusiasts and style icons, including Rihanna, Amal Clooney, and Meghan Markle gave inspiration on dressing for cold weather and provided us with ideas on how to use trendy jackets in building our entire wardrobe throughout winter.
To prepare for the change of season, check out the cool new takes on our favorite classic silhouettes of jackets and blazers that are sure to suit every personal style!
There are only a few toppers that are as iconic as a trench coat. Regardless of what you are wearing, a chic, trendy trench coat will instantly make you look British or royal – things we won’t hesitate to live with. Talk about channeling Meghan Markle or Alexa Chung!
Now, if what you want is to look cool in an instant, just grab a denim jacket. It’s been around since forever and it will never be uncool! Everyone including Chloë Sevigny, Madonna, and Marilyn Monroe have worn jean jackets, which is enough reason for you to do the same.
The best thing? Denim jackets provide a seemingly endless list of options! Do you already have one that is in a lighter color? Opt for another with a darker wash. Tired of an oversized denim jacket? Try a new one with details like laces or shoelace ruching!
If the top runway shows this season offered any indication, voluminous, oversized jackets are a must-have! We’re not talking about loose ones; we mean massive like three or four sizes too big. Maybe even layered as well. It is almost as though the fashion industry had too much surplus of fabrics and pads.
The trend started when models walked down runways in several layers of oversized blazers. Yes, they’re over the top especially for daily wear, but you can rock one especially when paired with a cute, trendy dress. With the big coat on top of it, you get to enjoy comfort and style at the same time!
Like a raincoat, a puffer coat has a bad rep. It does not have any sex appeal like that of leather or denim as it is usually the jacket that a mother forces her kid to wear. Basically, this type of jacket calls to mind bad memories and childhood resentment that is most definitely worth getting over. Fortunately, the newest iterations are so cool that pop singers wear them for night-outs!
Our love for animal prints waxes and wanes, but if there’s one thing the recent trend, leopard-print midi skirt, taught us, that would be leopard prints are here to stay. Like Canadian tuxedos and denim, it is possible to wear an all-leopard print outfit. As a matter of fact, it’s encouraged for a Lady Gaga or Madonna-esque look. Would that be too much for you? If so, then a leopard-print jacket is perfect as it’ll simply add a bit of leopard into your outfit to make you look cooler.
Loud, Statement Jacket
Everyone has a piece of clothing they’ll be able to rely on when they are having a not-so-good day or are running late. More often than not, this article of clothing is a really a loud, excessive statement jacket. If you get one that is really crazy, you basically are saved from spending time and money on creating a look as your jacket will be enough in making an impression! If feeling like a pop star in a cool jacket won’t make any changes to your mood, we don’t really know what will.
We love bright red blazers, most especially in keeping layers interesting. There’s no need for you to settle for a neutral or muted blazer at all!
Extra Long Blazer
Blazers are wardrobe workhorses, but they don’t have to be boring like they tend to be! Cobalt wool versions are beautifully tailored. Snap buttons will also save them from looking too cold or formal. They are great for lending shots of color, too, for an all-black outfit. On top of that, they work when you are headed out for a picnic in the park or drink in the pub.
