I´m sure that by now you already have at least one or two jackets that closely resemble what we´re seeing at the runway. Got a leopard print jacket? A biker? A patterned or printed jacket? A fur? A black jacket of any style? Or a military? Rest assured that you can restyle them to create up-to-date looks without blowing the bank.
You really don´t need to go buy new toppers, you simply need new ideas for sprucing up what you already have. The concept is very much the same as reviving your last year´s winter coats, you want to look of-the-moment yet not necessarily spending or hoarding new stuff. Here thirteen tips I gathered from the stage.
Biker Jacket with Plaid
Alice and Olivia
This season´s Urban English trend glamorize tartan plaid once again. Give your biker jacket a quick boost by wearing it with plaid, whether it´s a plaid skirt, a plaid dress, or a plaid button-down shirt.
Patterned Jacket and Mono Dress
Got a printed or patterned jacket? Pick one color from the print and create a monochrome ensemble in that color, from head to toe.
Colorblock a Wine
Wearing fall´s wine colors from head to toe is kind of dull, but it doesn´t have to be the case. Apply the all-time favorite colorblocking technique, add a hint of hot pink, red, and tangerine.
Belt Up a Moto
Got a moto jacket which you seem to wear same-same over and over again? Kick it up and change the look by adding an edgy buckled belt. Balance the edginess with a sexy skater skirt and tall boots.
The Belted Long Vest
You probably often put on a vest as-is. Why not try throwing it over a striking dress then pull together with a belt?
Sleek Jacket and Long Gown
Create a dressy-casual look with a gorgeous long gown, layer on top your favorite jacket.
A Military Jacket Over Lace
There are many characters you can create with a military jacket. Try using it to toughen a dainty lace dress.
Tap a Sequined Skirt with Leopard Jacket
Redo the Monochrome
Smoothly transition your black and white monochrome spring looks to fall and winter, make a black/white patterned jacket as the main statement of an all-black ensemble or vice-versa, a black jacket over black/white mono dress.
Dress Up Your Printed Pants with Fur
In case you got a pair of printed pants from last seasons´trend, add a polished fur jacket to give them a new spin.
Work with Beige
Beige is a soft shade that always remains a color staple for every season. Wear a beige jacket over a beige mono dress, or over a pastel combo.
Leopard Print with Cobalt Blue
Here´s another style trick you can use on your fave leopard print jacket, wear it with cobalt blue midi skirt complete with tangerine high socks.
The Black and Tangerine
Sure, black and tangerine is a Halloween color combo, but it also proves to be high-end designers´favorite. You´re almost always going to see these shades blended together on every fashion show. So get that good old black jacket – moto leather or blazer – and use it as a topper on anything tangerine.
