Boyfriend jackets make a come-back it seems almost every year and it’s no wonder — these jackets are simple yet completely stylish. So if you have finally caught on to the trend of boyfriend jackets for women, you are probably wondering which kind of jacket will look right for you. Well boyfriend jackets follow by the same rules that all over clothing follow. Here are some tips for choosing and wearing a jacket.
Don’t let the name of the jacket fool you. The word boyfriend makes it sound like it will be a baggy jacket, but the term actually means flattering fit that focuses on a woman’s form all while maintaining comfort. So instead of sifting through his closet for comfy clothes, now you can wear your own trendy and comfortable jacket.
They actually come in a variety of different designs, especially colors though they usually tend to be dark or just straight white. Before choosing a jacket, you need to be familiar with lengths and colors that emphasize your good features and while hiding unfavorable ones. With that said, most of them stop just below the waist but there are some for women that stop a few inches above the knee.
There are a couple of differences between these two types of jackets and one of them is length. The “younger” jackets have shoulders that a straight edge that women’s jackets don’t have. They are also normally meant to close in the front as the younger version of the jacket can be left wide open.
When matching these types of jackets with other your other clothing, they both look good with a sleek top, like a t-shirt, and a pair of jeans. A nice pair of slacks also look good with these jackets too. This look can be worn anywhere; from a dinner date to a basketball game.
