I talk a lot about jacket structure with clients. Of course, not every body shape screams structure. However, for those whose body is most flattered by it, here are some great examples of taking it up a notch. Look for detail. Detail in a jacket, the outermost piece that you are wearing, allows you to play the rest of your outfit simple. Everyone knows I am a jacket girl. It's typically my signature piece (aside from shoes, of course). Find your signature piece and work it. Even if it's not a jacket, you will still benefit from having a few in your wardrobe. Take these two jackets from Amberlynn Designs. The black jacket is fitted, following the lines of the body, with a peplum detailed finish in the back. The cream cropped velvet jacket has ruffle detail, a satin tie bow, and beautifully finished shoulders. Both are easy statement pieces.
We've discussed the trench coat. You should know that now is the time to find the perfect one on sale. Remember, when in doubt, consult with a professional. This will enable you to make the best decisions with your investments, rather than making purchases that don't flatter you, and consequently, you don't enjoy or wear.
