Keep cool and look great with the help of this season's must-have - the sleeveless jacket...
There’s one trend that just doesn’t seem to be going anywhere this season. Sleeveless jackets are making a serious comeback – and we couldn’t be more happy about the resurgence!
Perfect for days when you have absolutely no idea what the weather will do, the sleeveless jacket offers more warmth and protection than your average cardigan, but will keep you cool when temperatures are up. No longer will you be resigned to taking your jacket on and off throughought the day – just add one of these versatile buys to your wardrobe, and your outfit will look great all day.
Perhaps our favourite thing about this style is its versatility. Choose a smart option with buttons that will replace your work blazer, or try a more relaxed design that will add a fashion-forward edge to your simple t-shirt and jeans. If you can’t bear to have your arms on show, display your fashion prowess by layering a sleeveless jacket over a long sleeved top, or even this season’s must-have boho blouse.
No need to worry about feeling and looking frumpy – sleeveless jackets have the power to shrink your waist in an instant! Just choose a style that you can belt up and you’ll instantly feel and look slimmer. Apple shapes should go for a structured style worn unfastened – this will create a small panel along the middle of the torso, resulting in a slimmer looking figure. Pear shapes – try a longline style that can cover bums, hips and thighs – and be sure to belt up!
