In a tropical country like India, when you want to layer up a look without breaking a sweat or when you want to cover up in a fashionable way during the not-so-harsh winters, light jackets is the God-sent answer to your sartorial woes. These comfortable, yet stylish pieces are our fashion BFFs that lend interesting variety to mundane looks, while keeping us protected against environmental conditions when required. So, a few of these babies are wardrobe must-haves for women who are smart enough to know that comfort and style are best paired together!
Light jackets made of summer-friendly materials are perfect for layering up a look without feeling the heat. Wear a printed sleeveless shrug over a white tee, denim shorts and canvas ballerinas for a fun spring look, while a late night movie calls for a midi dress paired with a cropped summer jacket and a messy bun. Whoever said summertime is not for layering surely didn’t know about these versatile pieces.
Of capes and kimonos
Long capes and swishy kimonos (preferably with fringe details) are the new kids on the jacket block. A long jersey cape looks chic when worn over a cute crop top, denim cut-offs and sneakers. You can also throw on a summery fringed kimono over a tank top and a pair of boyfriend jeans for a brunch date. These light and airy styles have fast become a fashion favourite as they are ideal for creating fun layers.
Do the denim
Light denim jackets can be your go-to lifesaver when you step out of the house to feel a nip in the air or when you are going someplace where too much exposure is not welcome or simply when your underarms are not looking their best. Maxi dresses and denim jackets make for a rad pairing, specially when accompanied by a pair of boho earrings and a satchel. Not got a denim jacket? Just wear a denim shirt unbuttoned instead and step out in style!
For a fashionable Fall
When you start to feel that slight chill in the air and the days start to become a shorter by bits and pieces, it’s a light jacket that comes to your fashion rescue. These jackets form an important part of your Fall wardrobe as you pair them with everything from dresses to workwear to denims, occasionally throwing in a scarf here or a pair of booties there. Always carry one in your can-hold-the-whole-world tote for throwing it on as the evening sets and make that transition from day to night effortlessly.
