Fall 2017 Forecasting: Statement Jackets
Posted on July 23 2017
Fall is by far my favorite season of the year; Cool days and chilly nights means it’s layering season. So it comes no surprise to me that once summer is midway I began hunting down that falls statement pieces I plan on rocking. When it comes to jackets there are so many options and I love putting in the time and effort into picking the best one to match my outfit underneath. There is an endless selection, each with different fun detailing to match every type of personality. If I’m feeling a little edgy I grab a leather jacket that may feature some cool zippers or stitching while my denim jacket is always a go to because they can be styled in so many ways. Here are our favorite options and some stylish ways to wear them.
Leather For Him
Wearing a leather jacket automatically makes anyone fell 100 times cooler and Scotch Shrunk’s black leather moto jacket is no exception. Made from 100% leather it features a chic diagonal zipper and a ton of other tough looking details. Style the jacket with his favorite top and a cool pair of jeans like a faded grey or bold black pair from Scotch Shrunk. Complete the look with classic black pair of sneakers like Karl Lagerfeld’s trendy quilted high-tops or Hugo Boss’s stylish black leather running shoes that have a fun pop of yellow detailing. Looking for something a little bolder and in your face fashion? Little Marc Jacobs Teddy Bomber is the jacket that he will love to sport on those cold fall evenings. We love the two tone material look this coat features; The brown leather sleeves make a stunning contrast with the orange pockets and the grey and black wool bodice.
Fur For Her
Who doesn’t love fur details on their jackets? This season, Kenzo presented us with a fall/winter faux fur jacket that is absolutely to die for. Its bright, rich red color will make any girl feel bold and confident as she stands out in a crowd. We love how they added in their classic eye pattern in pink to make it truly a fashion statement. Let this piece shine by matching it with her favorite pair of denim like Chloe’s frayed jean and her favorite top. Looking for something a little more casual or versatile to match an eye catching outfit? Chloe’s light blue corduroy jacket features a removable faux fur collar so she can customize her style for the day. Dress the jacket up by adding in a little shine with Marc Jacobs metallic gold skirt and Chloe’s metallic gold flats. She will feel like a total fashion plate all decked out in this seasons hottest trends.
Denim For Both
Perfect for throwing on when running out the door; a classic denim jacket goes with practically everything because they are simply timeless. The best part is they’re comfortable and super versatile so there is not much thought needed to put into adding it to your outfit. For girls they have the options of a simple jean jacket like the mini-me version from Zadig & Voltaire or something with a little more flair like Junior Gaultiers Floral Embroidered Jean Jacket. Either of these options will look adorable with Marni’s orange pleated dress or a cool pair of black leggings from Versace and any fun top that matches her personal style. For guys we recommend a rugged look like Dsquared2’s denim jacket that features cool paint splatters and the designers name across the back shoulders. Pair this coat with his favorite shirt and either some relaxed forest green sweatpants from Versace or Stella McCartney’s dark black jeans that are a complete steal right now as they are on sale!
