This is the time of the year when I wished it´s possible for me to wear jackets, like suit jackets, but the reality is … the temperature is freezing and I prefer to snuggle in a parka.
Another reason is … I walk a lot. I do´t have a car. I walk a lot to go places – think 45 minutes to an hour of walking (peanuts) – and I love it. My toddler loves it too. I save money on fares and I get free exercise! But that also means you´ll always find me in thick parkas, at least for the most part of the year (Oh, how long is winter in this part of the world!).
And I don´t work in an office. I don´t even have a job! So what good reason is there for me to put on a stunning jacket?
While I ponder on this, let me show you first the five stunning jackets you can wear to work right now, for you gorgeous working girl.
1. Textured peplum jacket
Yay! Peplum is back!
Do you remember how peplum was huge five years ago? See here to remember how Kate Middleton set the peplum as trend. Well, fortunately, this is a timeless silhouette. If you decide to invest on a lovely jacket, consider this peplum number above, it´s smart and sophisticated. It will go with any high-waist trouser and all of your pencil skirts.
2. Tailored jacket in Oxblood
You´ll never go wrong in a tailored jacket, especially if you´re rocking a sharp two-piece. If wine is your color, then this should be a perfect choice for you.
3. Frill detail jacket
A black jacket is a must to any professional event, it remains the most powerful. But do you have one in waist level? It looks more modern than the classic long jacket. Try one.
4. Scallop detail zip up jacket
White is intimidating. It´s too sterile, too clean, and too perfect. In order to look approachable in a nice, white jacket, team it up with some cropped trousers. And of course, pointed-toe high heels.
5. Jacquard piping suit jacket
Did you see my post on how to wear the cropped wide-leg trousers this winter? What´s missing in that article is this jacket – textured and edgy. If you´re thinking of metallic detailing done in a really sophisticated manner, I highly recommend this.
While you girls are sipping your morning cup of coffee in the office, clad in your stunning jacket, remember your fashion blogger over here, who´s back into her snow-party-perfect parka, a toddler in tow, braving the freezing winter morning, but with a huge smile in her face, imagining how gorgeous you look in any of these jackets.
Have a magnificent day!
