Oh the jacket. With so many style staples necessary to complete the ultimate women’s wardrobe, it’s easy enough to let some items slide. When it comes to the jacket, though, don’t let this be you. A stylish jacket not only completes a look, it keeps you warm and shields you on a rainy day, making it both a fashionable and practical apparel item.
Having said all that, if you’re lacking in the jacket department, no worries, ladies, we’ve done the work for you. Carrying all your favourite brands and styles, we’ve rounded up our bestselling picks for each. While you may not necessarily need every jacket style in your wardrobe, investing in at least one high quality jacket for those chilly days comes highly recommend.
Here are four jacket picks that are going to have you looking your absolute best when chilly weather hits:
1) The Leather Jacket
Are you even surprised we’re starting here? Probably not, because if we could only pick one jacket that every woman should have in her wardrobe, it is undeniably a classic, black, leather jacket. Not only does a leather jacket immediately add some style edge to an outfit, it can also easily be styled with various outfits for an endless amount of style combos. Pair your leather jacket with a floral dress for a mix of edgy and feminine, or keep it cool and casual with a pair of trendy jeans, or hey, go all out with the rocker vibe by pairing it with distressed jeans and combat boots. Truly, however you choose to style a leather jacket, it’s a look that never fails.
On the hunt for the quintessential leather jacket that you’ll be able to wear season after season? You must check out our best selling Ruby Sees All Angels Biker Jacket. Trust us, ladies from all over are going wild for this little number. It’s that good.
2) The Jean Jacket
Coming in a close second in the world of “must have jackets” is the jean jacket. A jean jacket is that perfect piece to add to your wardrobe for days when there’s a slight chill to the air. It’s also a great alternative for those who feel like a leather jacket might be too edgy for their particular style preference. Keep in mind, while a jean jacket is slightly less practical than leather, due to the fact that you likely won’t want to pair your jean jacket with denim bottoms, it’s still a great addition to any women’s wardrobe. And hey, it has that super casual, cool-girl vibe that we’re all aiming for in our looks. For a jacket that keeps both your temperature and your style up, the jean jacket is an excellent investment.
Who’s seeking out a great jean jacket? We’ve got you covered with this pick from Coop. We love this option not only for its trendy cropped fit, we also love that it comes in a black denim for something a little different. And hey, black goes with everything! Who wouldn’t want this little baby in their life?
3) The Trench Coat
Has anyone ever said no to the classic trench coat? We doubt it! A trench coat is the absolute perfect jacket to have in your wardrobe for those days where you’re looking for something a little more classic and sophisticated, without being too over-the-top. It can easily be dressed up or dressed down, and most importantly, it looks great with so many pieces. A pretty sundress for spring, or a pair of dark wash denim for chillier days, no matter how you wear the trench coat, it’s going to keep you looking great all year long. That we guarantee.
You don’t have a trench coat in your life? Oh girl, we’ve got to fix that ASAP. Go ahead and check out the Hailie Longline Trench from SASS. Done in a super trendy, dusty pink colour, with a relaxed fit and lightweight material, there’s a reason why this baby is one of our bestsellers. However, if you’re looking for something that’s more well suited to cooler days, the Wanderer Long Line Coat from Minty Meets Munt is also worth a peek. Trust us, we’ve got a feeling both of these gems are going to come in handy, ensuring you’re toasty warm, no matter what the weather.
4) A Statement Maker
While we’re all about the style staples when it comes to your jacket, we also think it’s just as important to have a more trendy piece up your sleeve for something a little unexpected. While you might not get as much use out of a piece like this, having something more trend focused is what will make you stand out as a lady who really knows her style. Go for something in a vivid color, or bold print, try out embellished detailing like fringe or even pearl detailing, really, however you decide to make a statement with your jacket, it’s going to pay off.
Perhaps you’re lacking in the statement making jacket department? We get it. Stocking up on all the classics is always priority, but once you’ve got your classics, we highly recommend taking a peek at something like the Lady Layer Jacket from Curate. Done in a bold floral pattern with pretty ruffle detailing, this jacket truly has it all.
So tell us: which jackets are you lacking in your wardrobe? While we think each of these jackets is equally important to have hanging in your closet, it’s also important to pay attention to your style preferences and desires. Pick out the styles that most speak to you, and you’ll be strutting down the street with total confidence in no time.
Never underestimate the power of a good jacket, ladies. It’s a style game changer.
