Brisk winter is no excuse for a woman not to look fashionable. In fact, cooler months are the perfect time to add some depth to your wardrobe with stylish and comfortable outerwear. Jackets for women are not just functional — they are also extremely fashionable and can be the star of any ensemble.
Anyone can find a trendy jacket or overcoat without breaking the bank. Specialty shopping sites such as Jacket Society offer women one place to go for all of their outerwear needs. By focusing on jackets, coats and other outerwear, these sites can devote their attention to tracking down the latest fashion trends and making sure that their customers always look stylish.
So what are some of the modern jackets for women that you might see at popular outerwear shopping sites? Here are a few trends to look for:
Color: The fact that you are wearing a jacket doesn’t mean that you have to look drab and blend in with the weather. In fact, brightly-colored jackets — including raincoats — are often the perfect look to stand out on a dreary day. Many leading fashion designers such as Miu Miu, Dior and Michael Kors introduced looks for their Spring 2015 collection that had bright and vibrant colors such as tangerine, green and pink prominently features.
Lightweight Leathers: Many people live in climates where the weather can change constantly, or where you need a jacket but not something as bulky as a parka. If this sounds like your predicament, you may want to consider wearing lightweight leather jackets. They provide the insulation and warmth you need to stay cozy on colder days but avoid being heavy and bulky.
Rolled Sleeves: When the weather is starting to transition from cold to warm, you can signal this transition simply by how you wear your sleeves. Rolling up the sleeves on your jacket — just like men would with long shirtsleeves — is a great way to integrate jackets into your look when it is only somewhat cold.
Patchwork: The patchwork look is in as many women are opting for jackets that have an almost quilt-like quality. One fashionable way to incorporate this into your wardrobe is with a patchwork faux fur jacket. Using different types of “furs” in one jacket can add designs and depth and is a smart take on the traditional fur coat. Patchwork fur can also be used to accentuate cuffs, collars and more.
Jacket Society was started in 2013 by fashion designer Nora Minassian, who wanted to bring high fashion outerwear to every woman. The site has a handpicked selection of coats, jackets and blazers for women at affordable prices.
