Autumn is coming, and with it, the so-called mid-season: it’s not cold enough to put on a coat, but it’s not cold enough to go out in a thin sweater either. For these cases, there is a garment that never fails: the leather jacket. In addition to keeping us warm when the temperature is starting to get cool, it goes with everything and is timeless, so it will last for many years and will continue to be fashionable. But, which is the one that best suits your figure? Today we review the different models so that you can choose the one that best suits you.
Depending on the look you want to achieve, one will suit you more than the other. The variety of styles of hunters is enormous. For example, if your style is more rock, a jacket with zippers, shoulder pads, and lapels is for you. However, if you want to give your style a rock touch but without going overboard, you can opt for a jacket with a normal collar, without lapels.
The jackets combine with almost everything in our wardrobe. You can wear them with jeans and sneakers for a casual look. If you choose to combine a feminine dress with a women’s leather jacket, you will be betting on a mix of styles with a lot of personalities. You can even break up a formal style of a pencil skirt and heeled sandals with a more informal detail, such as a jacket of this style.
Jackets according to body type
If you are broad-shouldered, you will not want to overload the upper area. For this reason, the best thing is a straight jacket, which is not very tight at the waist, since making that area smaller will visually enlarge the shoulders. Also opt for a mao collar, without lapels, and of course, stay away from the shoulder pads.
On the other hand, if your body is rather straight and you want to create the illusion of curves, choose a short jacket fitted at the waist. Thus, cinching in the center of the body will create volume in the shoulders and hips.
When it comes to jackets, height does matter. If you’re short, you’re better off staying away from long, baggy jackets. You run the risk that the jacket will consume you completely. Better opt for a short and somewhat tight, which maintains your proportions.
The opposite happens if what you want is to hide hips: short jackets will only emphasize them more. But if you go for one that falls just above your hips, it will soften them, and they won’t appear as wide.
