3 Key Jackets You NEED
We know there's a lot of talk about what you should be wearing as the new season takes hold, and we're pretty sure you've got the essentials down pat. But, all fashion lovers know: it's not what you wear, it's how you wear it. So, we've nailed down four banging outfits that encompass pretty much all the items you should have on your FW16 wish list – how many have you checked off already?
Jacket $40, jeans $17
1. The luxurious bomber jacket
This chameleon of the jacket world is the sartorial gift that keeps on giving. From humble khaki beginnings, this strong outerwear item has surged through season upon season, arriving at FW16 in decidedly luxurious iterations.
One of our ultimate faves is this velvet and sequin hybrid – checking off not one, not two, but THREE of the biggest trends this season (namely velvet, sequins, and the silhouette). We love to keep it luxurious, which is why we've styled ours with jet-black leatherette skinnies and a simple bodysuit. The key to this one? Keep it simple – this showstopper doesn't need much help to be the star!
Another way to get in on the luxurious bomber is to dabble in some camo. The grassroots print offers a utilitarian feel, while the sequins amp things up to impossibly cool levels. Again, we've kept things relatively simple when it comes to styling: a slogan tee, and some tough denim is all you need. Feeling a bit bare? Top the look off with a cap to bring your outfit into sports luxurious territory.
2. The denim jacket
This durable must-have is always on trend, but this season we're taking a step in a new direction... Adding badges and distressing the denim lends an über-fresh feel to a beloved wardrobe hero. When it comes to complementing the jacket, for us, there's only one way to go: double! We've been fans of double denim for a while now – it looks on point and elevates the single pieces into a whole new ball game. Also, if we're being honest, this look makes life SO much easier when you're scrambling to get dressed in the morning!
3. The parka
Another jacket we cannot live without this season is the parka. From simple and classic khaki, to boldly badged, and faux fur-clad, this functional fave is having a big moment. Grab yours with plenty of outlandish insignia and keep the theme running through to denim and accessories. Anchor the look with a bright tee to contrast the milder khaki jacket. Looking good!
Et voila. These four #OOTDs will be excellent inspo when you're pondering what to wear in your next Primania post!
