Statement jackets for SS16
If you’re looking for one thing to supplement your summer wardrobe which would nail a trend for the new season ahead, you won’t go far wrong with one of the statement spring jackets which are landing in stores right now. In anything from classic tweed to beautiful silk bombers these little cuties can add pep to a myriad of outfits simply by slinging them over your shoulder as you head out the door.
I fell for this MSGM statement jacket from Matches Fashion within seconds of spying it. I’ve always been a bit of a sucker for anything metallic, and this jacket not only has a golden super power, it also has a bundle of other hues which are perfect for SS16 dressing. I paired it with my favourite J.Crew roll neck cashmere, these J.Brand denim culottes, Aquazzura neutral heels and Victoria Beckham bag for a recent press launch on Bond Street for Bulgari’s new fragrance Goldea… which you can read all about here.
The key to making these little beauties work well with an outfit is to pair them with neutrals or a monochromatic single colour look beneath. This way the eye is drawn to the jacket as admiring glances clock that you have indeed got your fashion nous together and shazam your status as fashion guru continues for another season.
