The Jacket; Every Working Woman’s Wardrobe Staple

Every working woman needs a jacket or 20 in her wardrobe. It is and should be a staple in any professional woman’s wardrobe.

Why? A jacket is very versatile. It can be dressed up or down. Whether you’re going for a casual, formal or in-between look, a jacket can achieve all three. What makes it even more awesome is that it can be worn all year round. Autumn, Winter, Spring or Summer, jackets are always and will always be on trend.

Difference between Jacket and Blazer

What’s the difference between a jacket and a blazer?  Up until recently, I used them interchangeably and thought they were one and the same but it turns out that they are not. A suit jacket is made of fine quality material and will feel smooth to the touch, unlike the blazer which can be made of rougher material like tweed or corduroy. A jacket also always comes with matching bottoms like a skirt or trousers.

How to style a jacket

Styling a jacket is as easy as just throwing it on. It requires minimal effort other than to make sure it is crease free. You can pair your suit jacket with its matching bottoms and a vest or t-shirt underneath the jacket.  For an uber chic look, drape the jacket over your shoulders. See this look here. Or you can pair your jacket with a top and denim or even a dress like I did.

If you’re looking to update your work wardrobe then invest in suit jackets. You’ll always be well-dressed without looking like you’re trying too hard. Remember, the way you look determines how people react to you at first sight so make sure you look the part you want to play. 🙂
