It’s tough transitioning between seasons without getting in a muddle with your mohair or being challenged by your chunky knits. So to ease you right on through to the winter months, here’s a little wish list on sleeveless jackets.
The jacket-sans-sleeves is having a little micro trend moment this season, and judging from some of the choices out there, I can see why. It hits the perfect style note between sharp silhouette and extra layering… it’s all about being sensible with your layers as the seasons change. Your mother will be proud!
As with any trend there’s a Hi/Low game to be played.
On the luxe side for the office, I’m loving this longer length Alexander Wang one, as well as the pinstripe number from the master of modern tailoring 3.1 Phillip Lim On the other hand for the same long line silhouette you could look to this paired down Helmut Lang piece, or for the pinstripe vibe go with this Mango number, and still have the required tailored impact.
If you fancy working the biker trend through the medium of the sleeveless jacket, try this 3.1 Phillip Lim one, or this New Look one for a more purse friendly price. Pair with double denim (for how to do that check back here) and you will be off to the races.
For a cocktail look you can utilize the sleeveless jacket in its tux form like this Joseph couture wool fleet jacket, or this gorgeous Oasis one. Add a pair of tuxedo pants and some blinged up heels for the perfect party outfit.
