paNASH Style Client Examples: One Jacket 5 Ways

One jacket 5 ways
Here we have from one of our client's closets one jacket that we paired with five different tops to show the versatility of the jacket. When doing closet and wardrobe edits, there are a few items that all our clients seem to be in need of, one of those being jackets of various kinds.

It's important to have a good mix of blazers and jackets because they serve many functions. They keep you warm when it's a little chilly, they serve as a layering piece to add dimension and interest to an outfit, they can hide problem areas and accentuate your physical assets, they can help you exude authority when necessary, and they complete the outfit. You can dress up an outfit with a blazer type jacket and you can dress down an outfit with a denim jacket.

When shopping for jackets, it's crucial to pay attention to the fit. Jackets should always fit the widest part of your body and you should be able to easily button it closed. If fitting the widest part of your body means you need to get the more narrow sections of the jacket tailored to fit the rest of your body, then plan to invest in such tailoring so you don't end up looking too bulky where you aren't.

For a flattering fit, women should always look for jackets that have higher armholes, have narrower sleeves, sit at the top of the hip, and cinch in at the waist. Many of our male clients wear their jackets way too big, which gives the illusion of extra weight. This illustration can show you how to recognize when your jacket is too big, too small, and just right.
