A woman’s outfit, makeup, hair, shoes and accessories that she wears completes the look. But we should not forget the one more factor that also adds or takes away from the way she is dressed – Her jacket!
The thing about jackets is that having one type may not work for all outfits. Like when you are wondering what to wear to a gala dinner, you also have to factor in the jacket that you will wear with so that the whole look is not marred.
Another instance where a jacket becomes important is when you dress for office. There are many simple and beautiful ways for you to dress for office, but the right jacket will help make a good statement or spoil the look. What you can do is look at the types of jackets you must have in your wardrobe and think about investing in the ones that will work out for your life and your budget.
Here is a list of Jacket Styles For Women that every woman must have:
A classic trench coat: This one has a waist that is cinched in to give you a shapely look. It works when the weather turns blustery just as you are planning to step out and leaves you feeling warm and looking great.
A peacoat: This is one of the originally masculine bits of fashion that has really worked well on women. Having this means that you can wear it for many occasions.
A fuzzy and cool jacket: This is a handy thing to have when you want to go out partying or pub hopping on a cold night. The fur whether genuine or faux adds a touch of glamour and confidence to you.
A coat in bright color: When the weather is grey and dull you mood also slides to the same side, in such cases a bright colored jacket in a color that flatters you is must to lift your mood.
A smart blazer: Just because you are attending a meeting does not mean that you need to look dowdy. Look sharp, tailored and smart in a blazer that fits you.
A dress up coat: Think silk, wool or cashmere jacket that comes up to your knees. It is a coat that will make a woman feel like a princess as she sets out for her evening of fun.
The ever practical raincoat: When it rains you need to cover up and some namby pamby jacket will not do; you need a good raincoat that will keep you covered and protected. A hood and good wellington boots would help too.
A bad girl leather jacket: Come on! Don’t you want to look the part as you wear your faded jeans and climb into that sports car or straddle to ride on a bike? Then this is a classic that you must have.
Parka or a puffer jacket: While style is all good you need good old fashioned warmth too. And for that a cute parka or a puffer jacket would work. Look good and feel toasty warm too.
An animal print jacket: There is a time when you have let the bad girl inside you out for a romp, then why not do it in proper style. The little black dress is transformed with this jacket or even the simplest outfit can perk up with this one
These are a list of jackets that should be part of your wardrobe that is not a hard and fast rule. You need to think which are the ones you cannot live without and go by that.
