How to wear a statement jacket

Today I decided that a wardrobe refresher was well overdue.  So, I went into town and realised that my student loan is far better spent on clothes.

While I was out I nipped into New Look and picked up a gorgeous statement jacket.

Don’t you just love a good changing room selfie?

I spent a long time umm-ing and aah-ing in store, as I wasn’t sure how to style the jacket.  After a bit of thinking I realised that this kind of item is a capsule wardrobe essential.  You can work them in so many ways!

Here are my Top Three statement jacket looks: casual wear, office smart, and evening glam.

1 – C A S U A L W E A R

Crop top

Quiz blue jeans

Black boots

Forever New choker necklace

A patterned jacket can make even a plain top and jeans look like you’ve made an effort.  Paired with a low chunky heel, you’re ready to tackle the day.

2 – O F F I C E S M A R T

How to wear a statement jacket: Office smart

Blue skirt

Dorothy Perkins black shoes
£16 – dorothyperkins.com

There’s no need to stick to monochrome in the office.  Add a splash of colour and you’re sure to turn heads.

3 – E V E N I N G G L A M

How to wear a statement jacket: Evening glam

Topshop white top
£31 – topshop.com

Boohoo golf skirt
£3.23 – boohoo.com

Charlotte Russe strappy sandals
£16 – charlotterusse.com

Panacea chevron necklace
£13 – lordandtaylor.com

Unfortunately it’s still pretty chilly in the evenings, so an extra layer won’t hurt!  Plus, most statement jackets are light enough to wear in warm venues.  No need to pay for the cloakroom next time you go clubbing, bargain.

What do you think of my outfit ideas?  How would you style a statement jacket like mine?  Let me know in the comments or on Twitter!

      I’m sure you could pull off some sort of statement jacket! Even if you’re not a fan of prints or patterns, a contrasting or brightly coloured jacket would still do the job. :)
