Jackets are one of my favourite items (aside from dresses of course!). Along with trousers, jackets are an item which both sexes share. It speaks gender neutrality, and although its box-like shoulders may first appear to highlight its masculine origins, it takes a truly feminine and confident woman to wear it well. And once the jacket is worn and the style is aced, it brings out the modern, new age woman in all of us, ready to conquer the world . Just look at how Serena in Gossip Girl pulls it off. Her style exudes confidence and elegance, and at the same time, it is a style that commands, a style that turns heads.
There are so many ways to wear jackets. Not only does it give an extra dimension to your outfit, it helps to create a totally different look too.
