Winter is an exciting time, since it allows us to pull out our cosy jackets and let us look trendy at the same time. Whether it is to add some dimension to an outfit, make a casual outfit more formal, or if you just don’t feel like baring too much skin that day, jackets are your best friend. Capes and casual cover ups are great for the summer, protecting us from the harsh sun, while keeping us looking chic. Kurtis and tops look great when paired with a jacket or cape, and casual jackets for women are super versatile and stylish, adorned over any top. Capes create an interesting silhouette while giving you the coverage you need.
Types of jackets women can wear all year round
The casual jacket for women has been seen as the street style of many Hollywood celebrities. But there is now a huge assortment of jackets available that blend well with both western and traditional wear.
Satin or linen jackets: With the winter’s approach, there is a need to blend fashion and comfort. These jackets look classy with a saree and a traditional blouse. You can take this up a notch, by opting for jackets with embroidery that lends an elegant touch, especially when paired with kurtas and anarkalis.
Denim jackets: Denim jackets are without a doubt, an absolute necessity in your wardrobe. They look trendy when paired with any top, dress, gown, shirts and much more. They even pair well with dhoti pants and shararas. Light-washed and cropped denim jackets are currently very popular choices.
Bomber jackets: Also called biker style jackets, bomber jackets are a perfect blend of tomboyish and feminine, and seem to never go out of style. They go great with all types of bottom wear, like jeans, skirts, shorts- you name it.
Enhance your wardrobe with cover ups for women
Cover ups for women can add a brand new character to any outfit, even if it is a traditional one, and help a woman flaunt her fun personality. Here are a few to choose from:
Capes: Cute capes in light colours, of a light flowy fabric are a cute option, especially for the summer. You can play around with draping and figure out what gives you the best silhouette. The vibrant hues of capes make them versatile so that you can wear them anywhere right from the offices to wedding parties. For instance, pairing any outfit with a vibrant red bandhani cape looks super attractive and eye-catching. Yellow capes look so pretty at any Haldi or wedding ceremony.
Stoles and Shrugs: These are probably the most affordable accessories, yet the most neglected. A single piece of fabric can do so much, from light cover up of skin and keeping you warm to turning a simple outfit super stylish.
Overshirts: Overshirts are any casual garments typically worn over a top, t-shirt or hoodie. Layering an overshirt would add warmth, and is great for relaxing or even working outdoors. A long flowy overshirt also creates a sleek silhouette, while providing the necessary coverage.
