As you can see, there are different types of jackets available. Finding the one that is right for you can seem difficult.
Here are some tips to help you find your type of jacket.
You can start by thinking about your own body. Are you comfortable in a leather jacket?
Are you looking to draw attention to a particular part of your body?
Leather jackets can make you look more muscular or bulky. However, because they are usually mid-length, they might make you look shorter than you are.
If you wish to appear taller and sophisticated, trench coats could help you achieve that. Their longer cut can give the impression that you are taller and slimmer than you might actually be.
However, the most important aspect is that you feel comfortable and confident when wearing your jacket.
Select a jacket that suits your needs, your lifestyle and matches the impression that you want to give.
You can look to celebrities who have worn iconic jackets, as mentioned earlier, for inspiration. Celebrities and influencers can keep you up to date about the latest fashion trends.
After looking to these celebrities for ideas, make sure to try on those jackets to find the one that suits you. Pick one that makes you feel comfortable, confident, and self-assured.
