Doesn't it get boring to be dressed looking like Joe Schmoe for every other social event? Of course, it does! Fear not, we have you covered – literally. Getting your suits up for a formal night or keeping it breezy for a rooftop party, jackets for men are here to set you apart from the ordinary.
If you're looking to add a dash of personality to your wardrobe, jackets are the holy grail of menswear. The jacket is an essential item in every man's wardrobe. Not only does it keep you warm and protected, but it is also a great addition to your personal style.
Casual to formal, jackets are the solution to amp up your style, and to do that with sophistication too. But it isn't as easy as throwing on a red Harrington jacket and voila, you are James Dean reincarnated (we wish it was that easy, though). Choosing the right jacket and pairing it with the right outfit is a daunting task, and we're here to make it easier for you!
Here's our guide on how to style designer jackets for different occasions and leave a lasting impression.
The Formal Affair
When it comes to formal events, you can never go wrong with a classic black tuxedo jacket. Pair it with a crisp white dress shirt, a bowtie, and polished dress shoes, and you're ready to take on the world (or at least the event). An etiquette that has stood the test of time, tuxedos should only be worn in evenings. So, for times when you can't wear the tux, you can bank on suit sets that are tailored to fit your style.
The Business Casual
For the business casual look, opt for a blazer or a cotton jacket in a neutral tone like navy blue, beige or grey. Pair it with a dress shirt and dress shoes for a smart yet relaxed look that screams business, subtly of course.
For Friday Night Lights
For a night out with friends, a bomber jacket is the ultimate go-to. It has been the definition of cool for decades now, and we're not going to challenge it. You could go simple, pairing it with a white T-shirt and tailored dark jeans, or experimenting with colors and patterns that suit your aesthetic.
The Weekend Brunch
For the perfect weekend brunch outfit, throw on a denim jacket on your favorite T-shirt and pair it with chinos or jeans. When the weather gets colder, you could layer a plaid shirt underneath the jacket and get that trucker vibe rolling.
Date Nights mean business, but not the business meet kind. It's a fine line that you don't want to tip over. The idea is to keep it polished but not too formal. A sports coat or a cotton jacket is a great choice that strikes the perfect balance. Pair it with a button-down shirt or a T-shirt and chinos or trousers for a sleek look that keeps it casual.
Layers work well, and they work well on ethnic wear, too. A Nehru jacket elevates the simple kurta in effortless fashion. You could pair your kurta with a plain Nehru jacket or go for a printed jacket for events that demand a celebratory mood. For its versatility, you could hardly go wrong with this style staple.
So, there you have it, our guide on how to style jackets for different occasions.
Remember, the key is to find the right balance between style and functionality, and always choose a jacket that suits the occasion. After all, a good jacket can set you apart from the crowd.
