Now that Fall is nearly upon us, it’s time to bring out all of the jackets and coats you adore. Our favorite jackets are those that really make a statement - whether it’s through color, silhouette, detailing, or a combination of the three. But the fact that they make such a statement can make it difficult to wear these jackets at work. The key to making statement jackets ready for work is to pair them with work-appropriate separates featuring minimal detailing. That way, you let the statement jacket shine (as it should). Here’s how to wear the statement jacket to work:
1. Start with a neutral base: a textured white top paired with a pair of straight leg trousers. The delicate pinstripes on these trouser pants give the base a little extra oomph.
2. Layer on a cropped-sleeve sweater. We adore the delicate pintucking on this aqua cardigan - so pretty!
3. Slip on your statement jacket, leaving it open so that the sweater and textured top layers can shine through. Don’t you love the fabric detailing at the neckline? The volume perfectly contrasts with the fitted, tailored jacket base.
4. Finish off the look with a pair of ankle boots and a sturdy work bag.
