Soon we’ll all feel a chill in the air as summer fades away—fall is here. We can all look forward to our existing wardrobe choices or going out to find new styles. Some of the most important things in our wardrobes in the coming months will be jackets. Just a few jackets can be paired in so many ways with other pieces in your closet that you’ll feel like you have many more than you actually do.
A boyfriend jacket is the perfect jacket for transitional wear. You can wear them with skirts and tops for your workday and when the day is over, you can easily transition for the evening by just switching your skirt for jeans and adding a few pieces of attention grabbing jewelry. When getting out to run weekend errands, start with skinny jeans and boots, then add a large bag for a comfortable, well put-together style.
Short leather jackets are a fashionable woman’s must have. If you can, have at least one that’s neutral and another in a color you’re comfortable using to make a statement. These can be paired with jeans, skirts,shorts, or dresses for fun weekend outfits or to get noticed when you’re out for the evening. They can easily be softened by adding a scarf or by layering over flowing fabrics for a day look. At night, add it to a short skirt or dress and the highest heels you have.
To dress up any outfit and ease into using jackets as part of your outfit, you should have a belted trench coat. This can easily make a bold color choice to add drama to your own personal style. Try layering over a skirt and blouse or pair it with leggings and flats for a more relaxed outing. The belted trench is not just for protection against the weather, but also offers a simple way to make a fashion statement without a large investment in a new wardrobe.
Denim jackets are a great choice to add to your casual wardrobe. With so many fun colored pant options, these jackets are useful as neutrals without wearing a traditional neutral color. If your outfit says what you want but needs one extra touch, this a great option for you to try. Make sure you go for a worn look and mix it up with anything in your closet.
Jackets will help you take your summer favorites into the fall if you’re not ready to pack them away just yet. So pair them with the perfect pair of fall shoes and you’ll find a look that is versatile, stylish, and a great addition to your fashionista personality.
