4 Outfits That Prove Down Jackets Work With Any Style
One of the most exciting ways we fashion girls like to ring in Fall is with a brand-new, wear-with-everything jacket. And while we love a good leather moto or tailored trench, this season, we're making the case for one of the most overlooked outerwear pieces on the market: the down jacket. Sure, it's warm and practical, but it's also surprisingly versatile and super chic. To prove it, we put together four outfits that remove its reputation of function over form and position it as an integral part of a well-crafted, fashion-forward look. So whether you're more of a classic dresser or a bold risk-taker, keep reading to see which ultralight down jacket is right for you.
If you're elegant and understated with a wardrobe to match, a sleek compact jacket in black is the perfect choice. Because of its thin shape and slim neckline, it makes for an ideal layering piece underneath a heavier wool coat. Worn with a striped-sweater-and-collared-shirt combination, cropped flare jeans, and mules, it's a classic office look.
Love making a statement? A wine-colored water-defender jacket is an unexpected pick, especially when paired with a brocade floral miniskirt in autumnal hues. Throw on a pair of over-the-knee boots and you've got a standout ensemble for a night out.
Play with pastels this season in a lavender-hued water-defender vest. The feminine silhouette lets you get away with a chunky knit layer underneath, but just make sure to keep the bottoms sleek for a flattering effect. Ankle boots and reflective lenses complete this crisp daytime look.
Go androgynous with an oversize, hooded parka in a utilitarian green. Combined with fresh kicks and masculine leather trousers, it's your go-to weekend uniform.
