The New Jacket

Harper's Bazaar

The monthly 'Catwalk to Closet' feature in the current edition of Harper's Bazaar is all about the new jacket.  My favourite wardrobe staple has been given a make over this season, and embellishment is now the order of the day, as seen here on the Balmain catwalk...

A bold statement piece requires a few style rules, and here are Harper's Bazaar's tips for keeping the look current.    

"Don't wear head to toe embellishment.  Instead, make a chic statement with just one piece.

Do add some glitz to your day look: pair an embellished jacket with denim to add some decoration to a dressed down outfit.

Do team it with sleek monochrome separates for a clean and modern look.

Don't overdo the accessories.  Let your centrepiece do the talking and keep jewellery streamlined for a sharp edge."
