Jackets are one of the most stylish and functional wardrobe staples you can have in your closet. However, wearing them with the same outfit over and over again may sound boring. If you have a lot of jackets sitting in your closet because you don’t know how to style them right, keep on reading for the 4 style tricks that make your jackets look cooler.
- Wear your leather jacket with edgy boots.
If you’re aiming for an edgy urban style, wear your leather biker jacket with boots. Like fashion blogger Johanna Olsson, wear your quilted leather jacket with a pair of over-the-knee boots that contrast with the color of your trousers to create an intentional look. However, if you wish to wear it with a dress, think of a pair of grunge boots that will make your basic black maxi dress bohemian inspired like fashion blogger Sonja Petrkowsky did. There are a lot of color choices for a leather jacket, but the black one will give the edgiest statement.
- Add some glam to your style by wearing your jacket with a fur scarf or coat.
Since jackets are a casual staple, wearing them with a fur scarf or coat will make everything classy. Like fashion blogger Blair Eadie, make your denim jacket party-ready by styling it with a fur scarf and an abstract print skirt. Or, make your winter layers more functional and cozy by wearing your winter coat with a fur scarf like fashion blogger Jenny Bernheim did. If you wish to make your urban style a bit classier, try wearing your jacket with a fur coat teamed with leather trousers like fashion blogger Johanna Olsson did.
- Wear your cozy jacket with a structured coat.
This winter season is all about wearing layers that will keep you warm and stylish. Like fashion blogger Blair Eadie, you may wear two trends at once by wearing a denim on denim outfit with a military coat, making everything effortlessly cool. This is especially true if you’re wearing a slouchy jacket with a lightweight silhouette or vice versa. Just balance the style by wearing loose with structured or sloppy with boxy.
- Add some sporty spin to your dressy outfits with a bomber jacket.
Bomber jackets used to be a fashion staple for athletes and students that can now be worn to create a chic style. Like fashion blogger Mary Orton, you may trade your office blazer with a chic bomber jacket that will still look polished and chic with your pencil skirt and button down shirt. While the sporty jacket will look perfect with sneakers, you can create a party-ready style like fashion blogger Micah Gianneli did, wearing a graphic print bomber jacket with her white matching set of crop top and skirt. By heeding these tricks, you’ll be able to make your basic jackets work for every occasion.
