Whether we’re talking suit jackets, dress jackets, leather jackets or full on winter jackets, the word for fall is fitted! This season’s jacket is all about taking those feminine curves of yours and making them absolutely dangerous with the right fit! To assist you with your jacket hunting process, we’ve uncovered some hot examples of this cool season trend.
The suit jacket… The fit on this jacket is very important as it will need to accent your curves while still remaining a bit on the conservative side. If you tend to be a bit top heavy, look for a one button fitted jacket in a solid color like black, navy or brown. If you’re hoping to create curves with this look, opt for a two or three button jacket in a bold color or pattern. Color and buttons aside, the fits is what’s most important. It should be snug enough to hug your waistline but loose enough so you’re not in fear of popping a button every time you sit.
The leather jacket… Whether you prefer motorcycle or a slightly less edgy version of this rocker look, again finding a leather jacket that is fitted is key. For motorcycle jackets, make sure the jackets sits right at or slightly above hip level and hugs your body when zipped. For a more elegant leather look, try a coat with front buttons and a large belt to create a better fit. Another important thing to remember is to pay attention to bulk. While a thick leather jacket may keep you warmer once the temperature start falling, it’s less likely than its lighter counterpart to keep your figure looking fine.
The tuxedo jacket… Perfect for day and night, the tuxedo jacket puts a fancy spin on the average suit jacket giving the look a more angular and polished appeal. For this one, shoot for the one button jacket and make sure it’s fitted enough so you can wear buttoned with dress pants or unbuttoned with jeans and still achieve that curve hugging appeal.
The winter jacket… Finding a jacket that will help you brave the snow at 6:00 am and still leaving you looking like a woman instead of an abominable snowman is a challenge but it can be done. Double breasted pea coats are always a win-win for every figure. The material is heavy enough to block out winter’s cold but the architecture of the jacket is fitted enough to still give you that hourglass look. If pea coats are not your thing, then shoot for a coat that is an A-line shape to create curves or opt for a straight, fitted style with embellished buttons and pair with a belt to create your own fitted look.
No matter what jacket you choose to sport this season, you can’t go wrong as long as you have the right fit. If you find yourself never able to quite find the right fit for your body, no worries. Simply buy the jacket one size larger and ask your tailor or seamstress to make some alterations. After all, there is no better fit than one that’s custom made to fit you!
