In fashion, it’s a constant battle between being on-trend and being practical. Take, for example, how coats and jackets can seem like such a burden when you’re trying to wear a cute outfit. You end up just covering your masterpiece because of the changing weather.
However, a jacket, coat or parka can work for you as part of your #OOTD. You just have to know how to wear it well and pair it with the right look. As usual, we scrolled through the feeds of our #TeamPreenPH girls to get some ideas on how to do just that.
If you want to balance out a dainty ensemble with a leather jacket, wear it over your shoulders the way Kiana did in her latest post. You won’t end up hiding your outfit as your jacket takes centerstage, and even goes well with the rest of the look. Cop her style anytime with this Leather Biker Jacket (P7,990) from Zara.
Zara. Available at Greenbelt 5. For a complete list of stores and more information, visit their website.
Raincoats don’t have to look drab when you try to stay dry. Take a page from Lauren’s style by wearing a sweater or a shirt of the same color as your rain coat to give off a put-together, monochromatic look. Take this Lightweight Pocketable Parka (P1,690) from Uniqlo in your favorite color so you can easily switch up your outfit on-the-go.
Uniqlo. Available at SM Aura, SM Megamall, and SM North Edsa. For a complete list of stores and more information, visit their website.
If you’re aiming for a comfortable, lazy day look that’s still stylish, grab an army green jacket. The color compliments a lot of different skin tones, making it easy to pair with any shirt. Get this Classic Utility Jacket (P1,450) from Forever 21, and you’re ready to channel the same vibe as Jess.
Forever 21. Available at SM Aura, SM Makati, SM Megamall, and SM North Edsa. For a complete list of stores and more information, visit their website.
Nothing beats a good denim jacket. Button one up all the way and you’re going to be warm and comfortable, while still looking like you put some effort into your look. You can replicate the same cool girl Janine-style with this Medium Wash Denim Jacket (P2,250) from Mango.
Mango. Available at SM Megamall. For a complete list of stores and more information, visit their website.
Unlike Kiana, Saab wants to put emphasis on her leather jacket. Wearing it with black and gray pieces, she manages to cover herself up from the cold while keeping that rebel attitude. You just have to make sure the jacket’s got the right length: It cuts off right at the waist, with sleeves that aren’t too long. Otherwise, the piece might be too overwhelming. You can go for Saab’s look with this Faux Leather Jacket (P3,950) from Cortefiel.
Cortefiel. Available at Edsa Shangri-La Mall. For a complete list of stores and more information, visit their website.
