Building your Capsule Wardrobe: Tailored Jackets

THE DRESS JACKET

Be it a summer evening or a wedding outfit, a cropped jacket is the ideal piece to pair with a dress due to its curved and short hem line. Sitting above the hips and tucking in at the waistline, it creates a flattering silhouette. We recommend a cropped jacket over a day dress to smarten up a look or, for a more modern aesthetic, pair with a maxi dress or long-length skirt for a contrasting effect.

For this season, we recommend our Linen Viscose Crop Jacket. Cut from a linen and viscose mix and with three-quarter sleeves, this piece lends itself to the ‘alternative’ jacket category – it doesn’t come with a matching pair of suit trousers nor does it have a classic notch lapel. Instead, a notched collar detail and a single-button closure gives a contemporary finish.

THE STATEMENT JACKET

Our statement jackets have been carefully constructed inside and out, so we suggest letting the jacket do the talking. Wear with tailored separates or pared-back, casual trousers and summer sandals for a refined and contemporary aesthetic.

This season, our Artisan Jacket is the perfect balance between statement and subtle. Made from an Italian cupro and viscose mix, it is tailored for a slim fit and bursting with details. Features include intricate under-rever stitching, an exposed centreback seam finished with a glossy trim and high vents on the back.

THE SUIT JACKET

Dressing for the office and the warm commute can prove a tricky task when leading up to summer. Wanting to maintain style but not compromise on comfort, you need the right tailored jacket… There are a few things to consider when searching for your work summer wardrobe. Solely switching to lighter colours just won’t cut it; the importance of the composition, construction and how you choose to layer your jacket are fundamental in your decision.

Meet our Portofino Suit Jacket. Made from an Italian linen mix, it is cut for a slim fit with a single-button closure and notch lapels. Choose from pale pink or storm grey, or for special occasions, opt for our Floral Portofino Jacket, indigo dyed for a striking colour finish.

THE EVENING JACKET

Separating work from play isn’t always easy with a jacket. If you’re looking to maintain a sleek, structured silhouette but have a point of different from your work wardrobe, we have just the piece…

Created from a wool mix and finished with a fully lined interior, our Contemporary Straight Wrap Column Jacket is a favourite amongst fashion bloggers and press alike. Offering a smooth transition from workwear to eveningwear, features include five working buttons on each cuff and a single button closure. Every feature of this item is polished and feminine. Dress for eveningwear with a metallic clutch and court shoe.
