While the fashion industry might be challenging to keep up with, there’s no doubt that there are certain items of clothing that everyone needs to own. For the most part, ladies have a fantastic selection and choice when it comes to jackets since they come in all kinds of shapes, sizes and for every occasion. Occasionally we can get a little caught up in one style, buying an insane variation of the same jacket, changing something as miniscule as the color. While this might make you feel momentarily happy, one style will not fulfill every need, season or occasion. So, what are the few key pieces every girl should have?
This is such an all-rounder. While they can come in practically any color you want, black is the most popular because it goes with absolutely everything. Whether you’re sporting jeans or a dress, a leather jacket will provide a trendy, up-to-date, and edgy look. Of course, these are not suitable for the more formal occasion, as leather jackets are more of a day-to-day item. However, a leather jacket can be the edge to your daytime outfit or the highlight to your evening look. No matter what time of the day, this jacket is a perfect choice. It is not, however, the only option and sometimes a change of material is necessary.
This is an essential item and can class up any outfit in no time. Generally, it would be ideal to start with a black blazer, it might sound a little boring, but it will go with every single color you have in your wardrobe. Only after you’ve purchased this key piece should you branch out to getting those wild color combinations for more specific purposes. Blazers come in different style variations and materials, and you will want to choose somewhere between corporate glory and ultra-casual coolness, to find the perfect all-rounder.
This is just a basic, waterproof, warm jacket. This is probably the most technical and functional jacket you’ll want to own. The blazer and the leather jacket will not provide much protection against the elements during heavy rain or wintry weather, so a more practical jacket will serve this purpose. There is a massive selection on technical jackets ranging from pocket money to ‘I need a raise.’ There’s no need to go overboard or to sacrifice style either. Overcoats can look awesome; you just need to choose the one you like the most.
The Denim Jacket
This is basically the summer version of a leather jacket. It’s lighter and looks totally different. Denim never goes out of style, and while we’re probably not going to be quite as denim-obsessed as they were in the 90’s – we all remember Britney Spears’ ultra denim dress – there is everything right with a denim jacket. Any summer dress you have will be complimented, providing a comfortable layer and awesome style.
Of course, there are hundreds of jacket styles out there, but some are more transferable than others which is what makes them so essential. One way to look at it is, owning these four specific items may be a great money saving hack if you’re not too fussed on variety, but need almost every occasion and instance covered. After that, the sky’s the limit.
