Posted by jason stewart on March 27th, 2020

The women's jacket is available in a multitude of styles and materials. Between current trends and classics, how to find your way around and select the jacket that suits you best? We give you the tips for a successful outfit with the jacket of your choice!

What type of jacket for my body type?

The women's jacket can be short, long, denim or leather, but the most important thing is that it suits you! When you have a few curves, a long and straight jacket can camouflage the hips and harmonize the silhouette. If you are small and petite, a short, fitted jacket is ideal. 

You understand it's all a question of proportions. We must, therefore, choose the jacket that suits us, whether we are large or small.

But whatever its morphology, the choice of its jacket is first of all based on its usefulness. 

In the evening, at work or on weekends, which jacket to choose?

A rather light garment, the jacket is the best ally of layering games. So to complete a chic outfit, in the evening, we start with a short, fitted jacket, 3/4 sleeves. 

To go to work, a working girl outfit with black cigarette pants and a white shirt will be enhanced with a pretty suit jacket of your choice, sober or colorful. The important thing is to choose a well-tailored jacket. For an elegant look without being stuffy, the buttons are not closed.

Finally, for an afternoon shopping, you can, depending on the season, go on a short bomber style puffer jacket, a leather jacket with a skirt for a rock look or a denim jacket, a must.

How to be trendy with a jacket?

The jacket is a fashion accessory that can be found in all seasons. Even in summer, it's nice to slip into a light jacket on cooler evenings. 

The 80s are making a comeback with padded shoulder jackets, short jackets, and bright colors. 

For winter, woolen skins and military-style jackets with gold buttons are very popular. We also find in the trend plaid jackets evoking the 60s as well as great classics revisited like the leather or denim jacket.

Don't wait any longer to be stylish with a jacket! 

Velvet, a 70's trend that is coming back in force for this winter   

For a return to softness this winter, velvet is reappearing. Straight back from the seventies, this long shunned material resurfaces in our closets and interiors and that's good! This is thanks to the haute couture houses which have seized this fabric to make it chic and trendy pieces which today become real timeless must-haves of our dressings.

Today, having become more versatile, velvet is experiencing a different revival than that which marked the previous decades. This fabric is now used on costumes, skirts, dresses, coats, etc. in totally varied tones and colors.

Ideally, prefer to wear velvet on a single piece: skirt, dress, jacket, pants, jumpsuit, etc. and combine it with other materials to play on contrasts. Different types of velvet are available so that you can always mix your styles.

How to wash the velvet?

If you want to detach silk velvet, do not use water, which will have the sole effect of leaving awful halos that you can no longer get rid of. Use Sommières earth by sprinkling the area to be treated while massaging. Leave on for a few hours (ideally at night), brush and then vacuum.

As for other types of velvet such as cotton velvet, you can use soapy water without any problem or put in a washing machine. Indeed, today mainly designed in polyester with a certain percentage of lycra to make them more comfortable, more flexible and much more elastic, they are easy to clean.

For drying, you can choose to hang on a hanger or put in the machine on a delicate cycle.

Never iron corduroy! For other pile fabrics, steam ironing on the back of the fabric is sufficient.

You can also opt to bring your parts to be cleaned at the dry cleaning for a dry wash.

For your furniture made of velvet, regularly and gently brush it with a soft brush or a microfiber cloth or even a chamois to remove the dust and restore its shine. Do not hesitate to spray it with a protective spray to avoid future stains.
