Shop your closet – styling a classic jacket

Armani jacket restyled

 

 

This was one of my favourite jackets when I was working in the corporate market. I wore it when I needed extra confidence in a challenging situation. I felt that the structured shoulders added a touch of authority.

It is by Armani collezioni.  I bought it in Selfridges in their sale. The fabric is tough but soft being a wool mixture with a touch of cashmere.

I have teamed it above with a simple grey cashmere sweater, grey ankle length trousers and a pair of suede flats.

For a more casual look I am wearing the jacket with a pair of NYDJ straight black jeans.

    I agree a good jacket is the answer to many fashion problems from smart to casual.

    A great jacket is a staple piece to wear with so many outifts. I know why this continues to be part of your wardrobe.

    Oh, I love the jacket over the layered tops! What a great look. I think the hallmark of a “good” jacket is that it works just as well with more casual outfits.

I love to hear from you please leave a comment
