In the 80s and 90s, the fashion of jackets took over from the 70s pinstripe suit ensembles. Ever since then, the jacket fashion has withstood the test of time. Today, jackets are as popular in modern culture as Instagram filters. Think about all the music videos that have celebrities wearing jackets that float glamorously in the wind. Wouldn’t you want that?
You might be wondering who needs jackets in this hot, humid Singaporean weather. The truth is that jackets add a flair of sophistication to your look. Think about it; every fashion icon in the world has an ensemble with jackets. Jackets make a person look badass. So even if the weather is warm, jackets come in handy when going for a stylish, rugged look. We don’t need to go into too much detail of how jackets, cardigans, and sweaters can upgrade your look. Instead, let’s look at how you can choose the best jacket combinations from the biggest brands here in Singapore.
Choose your style
The first step to upgrading your jacket fashion is to choose your style. Generally, we in Singapore prefer jackets that have an opening front. This allows for easy ventilation and removal. As we may go from the air-conditioned indoors to outdoors, we need a style that can accommodate our preference. The most fashionable of the opening jackets is the leather jackets.
You also have the choice of going for hooded jackets for a suave look. Hooded jackets, or ‘Hoodies’ as they’re called, also make your upper body look taller. This is particularly useful for those with short a torso.
Go for colour
Next, you want to add some colour to your ensemble. Choose bright vivid colours for your daytime wear. For nightlife or more professional use, go for darker colours. Darker colours also give a sense of maturity and add a sense of seriousness to your look. Lighter or brighter colours give you the young vibe. If you don’t fancy bright colours, why not go for denim jackets. Denim jackets have a rowdy-cowboy look but scream casual at the same time.
Fashion Police tip: Be aware of possible contrasting colours that may send the wrong messages. This is particularly important for men as it may indicate the wrong message.
Check for practicality
Sometimes we tend to get caught up with the fashion style, we forget about practicality. Jackets need to be practical as much as they are fashionable. We cannot stress this more in this country due to the heat and rain. Choose a style that will complement your activities. If you plan to go out in the rain, be sure to get a windbreaker or waterproof hoodie so you won’t be drenched. Going riding on your superbike? Choose a stylish bomber jacket to protect you from the wind as well as make you look rugged as. Pair any of these styles with a pair of jeans (blue or black) and you’re ready to hit the streets!
