According to Marc Jacobs, texture is the new colour! Therefore, a boucle jacket (the one that looks like a classic Chanel jacket) is the number one buy of the transitional season. The chic alternative to cardigans and blazers embodies a de-constructed Parisian cool. Perfect for guarding against the chill, this jacket works both thrown over a floor-sweeping dress or sleek skinny jeans.
Frayed, gold-trimmed and boho embellished tweed jackets are currently gracing the backs of many celebrities. Thanks to its just-pull-it-on-and-go attitude, the re-invented boucle jacket is not to be ignored. Here’s the designer (and retailer!) trophy jackets of the season.
Moschino Cheap & Chic
Give your wardrobe a vivid infusion of colour and texture with the Lucky Red plaid jacket from Moschino Cheap & Chic. Designer Rossella Jardini gives the classic plaid bouclé-tweed jacket a 2012 update with silver-tone charms on the contrasting trim and slit pockets. Keep the look quirky-cool with a leather skirt and gold cap toe pumps.
The clean silhouette of this soft and sumptuously textured jacket makes a sophisticated yet relaxed style statement. The neatly tailored piece features a contemporary cropped silhouette, padded shoulders, and 4 decorative welt pockets at front. The frayed trims in front give this piece a soft, laid-back look. Perfect for the office and after hours alike.
Would you texturize your wardrobe with an autumnal-hued tweed bouclé jacket?
