Jackets are timeless, protect you from the elements, and work very well to complete an ensemble and draw the eye where you want it to go. A fabulous jacket is also an excellent option for adding something extra to a dull outfit. There are too many types of jackets to discuss here, so we will look at ones that every woman should know about.
The Leather Jacket
The leather jacket has been around for a long time and for good reason. It can instantly make you feel sophisticated and empowered while pairing well with most outfits. While it is not as sophisticated as other options on this list, it is a classic statement piece that you should have in your wardrobe.
Cashmere jackets are the softer and more luxurious form of wool, which is very comfortable due to how fine its fibres are. For these reasons, it will be the most comfortable jacket in your wardrobe. Cashmere jackets come in many styles and designs, from the sophisticated and serious to the funky, fun, and everything in between.
Cashmere jackets are also an excellent option when it is cold and during the winter because the fine fibres are excellent at trapping heat but without the added bulk you typically get with a wool jacket.
The Waterfall Jacket
This type of jacket is a lot more casual than other options, but it can still be worn in professional settings if you style it correctly. It gets its name from how the fabric is cut and sewn, both of which are done in such a way as to create a softness and waterfall effect caused by the overlapping of the fabric.
The waterfall jacket is so appealing because it can create light to medium fullness so you can use the waterfall effect to great effect depending on your size and the jacket you get. As with other pieces of clothing, waterfall jackets come in different sizes, and there are also plus size jackets for women in this style.
When shopping for a waterfall jacket, it is important to know where the fullness is to use it to your advantage. For example, women with large busts can choose a jacket with a waterfall below their bust. Also, the jacket will widen and enlarge if it opens wide at the burst, killing its slimming effects.
The Trench Coat
This is a versatile type of jacket that can be worn in almost all settings, even when going out on a chilly night. They are made of different types of materials, but most are made to be waterproof so they are great for inclement weather.
When choosing a trench coat, you should consider its length. There is no perfect trench coat length, but you should choose one that falls below the knees if you are tall and just above the knee if you are shorter.
There are many types of jackets for women, from the professional and serious to the staples and timeless options and new designs. How they fit, look, feel like and contour the body are just some of the considerations to keep in mind when deciding which jacket to add to your wardrobe.
