If there is ever an item of clothing to solve a wardrobe malfunction it’s the jacket. The right piece of outerwear can turn any outfit into a show stopper. Not only are jackets always in style but there is one for every single occasion.
Here are five jacket styles that you need in your wardrobe:
The leather jacket is a piece of clothing that you can easily take from a day in the office to a night out on the town or just a walk to the shops. Pair a dark leather jacket with all black clothing for a simple night-time look that makes an impression or throw it over a dainty lace dress to add edge to a feminine ensemble.
Leather jackets will also always be in style – they’re timeless and can easily be worn three out of the four seasons of the year. In the fall they work perfectly over light blouses and act as a key layering piece during those cold winter months.
The colored blazer can be used to add a pop of color to your wardrobe. We all wear so much black and grey especially during the winter so adding that little bit of color with a jacket like this is a must. When wearing a colored blazer, it’s a good idea to match it with neutrals like blue jeans and a white top or you can wear it with all black and let it add a little brightness to a dark ensemble.
Cooler nights call for that denim jacket when you’re out after dark – but not actually outside. They’re great to accessorize with or add a creative layer of clothing. Wear it with a parka jacket or a bomber to add some interest to the look.
Denim jackets can be worn differently as each season changes, so keeping up with this can feel tricky. Check out this Buzzfeed post for more inspiration on how to wear a denim jacket.
A great outfit needs a stylish raincoat for when the heavens open. When you’re outside on those cold wet days, people will only see your coat, so it definitely shouldn’t be an afterthought. A good looking raincoat is a must-have in your wardrobe – because regardless of your outdoor activity you want to stay dry and warm. If you opt for a thinner material, layer it up with another jacket style underneath or a snug jumper.
Styled up or styled down there is no way you can get away with not owning a bomber jacket. You can pair it with trainers for that casual look or with heels for a little bit of a flair. Available in a range of different colors – with khaki/army green proving the most popular – it’s a versatile piece of outerwear to mix with other clothing.
If you don’t have one, then what are you waiting for? Get yourself over to a site such as Superdry for a huge range of women’s jackets – we’re loving their luxe sports bomber jackets with soft material and padded design.
