A good statement jacket can add so much to an outfit, and it’s a piece that’s worth every penny of the investment. Wear it with a classy black jumpsuit and you have a perfect date night outfit; wear it with jeans and a tee and it adds a pop of colour or texture to an otherwise minimal ensemble. Jackets have nudged their way into the forefront of the style realm making a case for the art of layering. If you’ve ever felt like your outfit is missing a little something, it’s most likely the presence of an eye-catching topper. From season to season they can be worn with your favourite getups and they’ll never fail to have you looking your best. Don’t shy away from wearing a bold lip and adding an accessory that plays off one of the jacket’s elements. Wearing an aztec pattern jacket? Add a geometric statement necklace. Sporting a suede fringe jacket? Dropped feather earrings will do the trick.
When you feel like you have nothing to wear, a statement jacket swoops in as your saving grace. Throw it on over any outfit and you’ll be heading out the door looking totally put together. Check out 5 statement jackets that are worth the investment.
A coloured leather jacket like this one by VERSUS is statement-making in so many ways. The rich olive green colour is eye-popping, yet neutral so it will pair with almost everything in your wardrobe. It’s classy meets edgy, and can easily dress an outfit up whether you’re going dancing with friends or on a romantic date.
I love, love, love the Aztec pattern on everything from dresses to clutches to coats. This jacket has a bohemian vibe that works perfectly with a flowing romper or a simple tank top and skinnies combo.
With the 70s trend seen everywhere these days, from the runways to fashion’s trendiest bloggers, a fringed jacket is a must-have for anyone who wants to make a cool-girl statement. There’s definitely no shortage of fringe with this faux suede Raga jacket. It’s the perfect layering piece for dresses, maxi skirts, jeans, and shorts.
When it comes to jackets, floral is never a bad idea. This black and white rose print duster-style coat is feminine and chic, and can be worn dressed up or down for a more casual vibe.
This list would not be complete without a metallic jacket that will have you turning heads with some extra glitter and glam. Subtle enough to wear on a first date, and loud even to outshine your trendiest friends, this jacket is perfect to gift yourself anytime of the year.
