Winter Wardrobe Update: Layer it up

By Pritha Bhattacharya Dec 9, 2012 6:51PM

As the days get colder, most of you would have already started updating your winter wardrobes. This week, we look at the all-purpose jacket that not only helps protect you from the elements but also has the potential to add a chic twist to your ensemble, provided you pick the right pieces.

Doing Casual

A great jacket is one of those versatile pieces that takes you from morning to evening and from casual to dressed up in minutes. Deepika Padukone dresses up her casual tees and ripped denims with white or black blazers and a stack of bracelets or a striking neckpiece. Kareena Kapoor keeps comfortable on flights with her stylish dark grey one button jacket sans lapels and Shazahn Padamsee pairs her casual evening jeans and printed top with a light coloured blazer and an orange bag to keep it interesting.  


 

 

All Dressed Up

If you are looking to dress up for the evening or a formal occasion and still keep warm, layer your jacket on your favorite dress or a slinky gown like Priyanka Chopra who looks fabulous in a pink camera print Masaba dress that she paired with a black blazer and sky high heels and Jessica Alba who looks uber chic in a Ralph Lauren leather jacket paired with her printed Prabal Gurung dress. You can also try a menswear inspired pant suit in a stand out colour like Jennifer Hudson who is rocking that green Michael Kors pantsuit!


 


Don’t shy away from colours and experimental cuts and forms, this season. Try out prints, multi-colours and bold hues in blazers, bombers, parkas and quilted biker jackets. There are tweed, leather and silk options to choose from in varied cuts and styles. Always looks for the perfect shoulder fit for your jackets and pick styles that flatter your body type and camouflage your problem areas.


 


Currently, I am in love with my indigo Zara jacket and my Oxblood Topshop open blazer. What about you?  Let me know! Leave a comment or Tweet me @2bpritha
