Outerwear: What’s Good For Winter 09/10
Lupe Fiasco in one of the season’s most popular pieces – a fitted leather jacket
Jack Frost is about to kick down the door on us, but at least you can look fly as you freeze.
See below for a rundown on some of the freshest outerwear this time around:
THE VARSITY JACKET:
Varsity jackets are a hot commodity right now, but these are not your typical college styles. Cool color combos and edgy stitched designs provide a more modern look.
THE DOWN PUFFA:
Down puffa jackets are available in all shapes, sizes and fabric finishes. Get a glossy one, like the Aika Down Coat by Miss Sixty, or go for a classic look like the Chest Striped Snorkel Jacket by Triple F.A.T. Goose.
Grown up parkas are where it’s at this season. If you invest in a down piece, you can go for a sleek look and still stay very toasty.
No need to O.D. on looking militant, subtle details like buttons or the shape of the jacket work for this look.
THE PLAID WOOL BIKER JACKET:
Plaid has been hot for a minute, as well as the rocker look. Get yourself a nice wool jacket like the ones above to keep you warm. The furry collar is a fresh added touch. Leather sleeves are becoming increasingly popular, namely denim and wool jackets such as the Plaid Motorcycle Jacket by William Rast (Justin Timberlake‘s hit clothing line).
THE LEATHER BOMBER:
This season’s leather jacket is not the ridiculously over sized joint with rhinestones and embroidery all over it. Cop the more fitted bomber style for a clean updated look.
