As you prepare to hit the July sales and maybe even look for those great structured jackets, make sure you remember that all the DETAILS are important! Looking for special details on a jacket is where you begin to develop a style that is all your own. First, remember to make sure the jacket fits you and has great seaming. Then look for unique details and begin to build a wardrobe of separates that can produce many different outfits. I like to have several jackets of neutral colors: black, brown, tan, grey,white. (S & C 101) Then I can make the outfit interesting with print blouses or great scarves. I have begun to look more for creative, interesting details so that my style is unique to me.
For example, look for detail on
POCKETS…For one of these looks, I found a blouse with brass buttons to match the brass button on the jacket pocket. These are small ways you can tie a look together.
CREATIVE TRIM OR SEAMING…which will also flatter your body.
BUTTONS….either creative buttons or used in a stylish way on elements of the jacket…pockets, sleeve, in addition to the functional front closure buttons.
