How to style a Sleeveless Jacket

This season, our approach to jackets are widening with the insert of the ‘Sleeveless Jacket’ to the fashionable line-up of what’s hot.

Structured, but sans sleeves, this item is a fantastic option to allow for layering and bringing in a boyish vibe to any outfit without too much effort.

The Sleeveless Jacket can very quickly pull your look together, and all you need to do is throw it over a silk shirt or camisole and voila, you add fantastic amounts of stylish masculinity or to any femininely orientated outfit.

There have been a couple of variations of material and length to hit this season’s most fashionable wardrobes – the most trending being the shorter denim sleeveless jacket, a longer, more structured and suit orientated sleeveless number, and the camo version, which is military based and equal parts practical and fashionable!

To use the Sleeveless Jacket as an accent to these seasons’ outfits, there are a few things you should keep in mind; here is a list to ensure your hitting the trend straight on…

1) Take on either a ‘Minimalist’ or ‘Rocker’ vibe.

These two style orientations seem to work well for the Sleeveless Jacket.

If minimalism is your preference, then keep the lines of your garments sharp, the angles clear and the fabric structured.

Monotone works best for this look as does minimal accessorising and equally structured hair (try a side part!)

Taking up the more rocker look means that edginess will play a big part in your styling.  Hem lines can be roughed up, layers can be creased and more haphazardly thrown together, and accessories should be staked and spiked to pay tribute to the grungy rockers of our past.

2) Loose the long sleeves.

This look, as the jacket suggests, is sleeveless.

So try and make sure the rest of you outfit follows sync for the ultimate in styling combo.

How good do you look in the colour red?

For help in choosing the most flattering clothes that will bring out your natural beauty, it helps if you first ask yourself which colors really complement your skin tone, hair, and eyes. By determining what hues are the most flattering, you can fashion a wardrobe that makes you look fantastic every day.

When consulting experts who advise women on which colors work best for them, you may hear terms like "warm" or "cool" in relation to your skin tone. In order to choose the most flattering colors to wear, it's important to understand what these terms mean and to find out which one best describes your skin tone.

In clothes, as with makeup, the undertones in your skin as well as hair and eye color give valuable clues as to what shades will work most harmoniously with your natural coloring. These factors directly impact what colors will look best on you.
