The Chicest Jackets To Wear All Year Round

Whatever the weather!

A jacket is the beginning and end of any outfit.

This does not mean birthday suit + trench coat = ‘flasher’ vibes…

No matter what style you’re wearing, your outerwear will inevitably be the focal point of your outfit, so it makes total sense to invest in jackets rather than save.

The trick is to own a capsule of classic styles which will mean less time and $$$  spent on worrying about what to wear (hallelujah!) because on ‘I have no clothes’ and ‘I’m late’ days you can throw them OTT for some instant ‘I’ve got my life together’ vibes.

Whether you go for a statement like a leopard print that will be the hero piece of your outfit or a super-sleek bomber that will pull everything together, a jacket is something to rely on. Side note: no one will shame you for outfit repeating with jackets so wear them 24/7.

Denim jackets always look cute over summer dresses, add a basket for instant cool-girl-ness (you’ll find the perfect ‘It’ girl basket here). Wear a red velvet robe with a t-shirt, jeans and heels and be like the babes from Italian spring street style. Be cool not ‘puffy’ and choose a shearling + jeans in the winter. If you own a chic blazer, getting ready for work in autumn will always be easy (despite post-summer blues) because it will instantly make any outfit. If you’re on a blazer budget, have no fear and click here!

Wherever you are, whatever the temperature, the edit below features a jacket for every occasion.

The Leather

Every woman should own a leather jacket because as soon as you put it on you'll immediately look and feel like a boss. This will toughen up feminine dresses but also make casual clothing look chicer. Try it with a suit pant and blouse for a work appropriate look.

The Robe

This has been all over street style so it's the quickest way to achieving 'It' girl status. It's versatile, layer it over an outfit or tie it up and wear it as a dress. Try it with a basic top, jeans and a heel for a cool, statement evening look.

The Denim

You can wear a denim jacket a million ways. Choose a darker shade for a more grown up and chic look. Wear it over a dress in summer for a model-off-duty look or layer it over your skivvys and knitwear in the winter with jeans and boots. Make a statement and try buttoning it up and wearing it as a top.

The Blazer

If you've been following CHRONICLES OF HER for awhile you'll know that we believe the black blazer is the ultimate wardrobe staple. It will instantly pull together and fix up any outfit plus you can wear it over just about anything. When in doubt pull back your hair, put on some lipstick and throw on your black blazer.

The Sherling

To avoid looking like a snowman/Michelin man/onion (too many layers) can be tricky but thanks to this jacket we no longer fear the cold. It will keep you warm and looking the right kind of cool. Pair it with your denim because the blue and terracota will compliment each other. Bonus: it comes in black.

The Bomber

This jacket is perfect for those that want to be comfortable but still chic. For a relaxed, tomboy vibe pair this with black suit pants and sneakers. Dress it up with black skinny trousers and a block heel in the evenings. Bonus styling tip: layer it over a coloured skivvy like the cool girls do.

The Leopard

All the style icons including Kate Moss, Alexa Chung and Sienna Miller are all big fans of the leopard print coat and we hear this print is making a huge comeback this season. Our STREET 365 star Lucy Williams looked epic pairing hers with dark denim, a knit and red boots. Keep it simple over your basics or be daring and try it with something red, they surprisingly compliment each other.

The Trench

Although a timeless piece, the trench is the style of this season. It suits every woman, whatever her age so you'll keep this forever. It will look good over everything and the maxi length will be ideal for those days where you would like your outerwear to speak for you.
