finding a fitted jacket

Whether working online or returning to the office a jacket is a great way to sharpen you look. While the business suit has gone the way of the dodo, jackets worn with trousers and jeans remain on trend.

The Spring/Summer shift to more relaxed style jackets with a looser fit is going to continue through Autumn and Winter. While the comfort level of these jackets is welcome the silhoutte they can create is not for everyone. The proportions of the jackets is the main issue. Fortunately, desginers and brands are aware of this.

If you are in need of a jacket do over but are not comfortable with the boxier, relaxed style jacket a blazer can be a good option.

Blazers come in a variety of styles but those that nip in at the waist are best for creating shape. A more tailored and/or cropped version is a good option for creating a pulled together look without looking unfashionable.

To create the relaxed look try jackets made from softer fabrics.

Here is some inspiration for your search.

Brands that are currently offering good options include Carla Zampatti and Perri Cutten. They have a classic blazer that is perfect for the office. To stand out from the crowd, try Biance Spender or Anna Thomas. For work to weekend Mos Mosh is a good option as are the New Zealand brands Kate Sylvester and Karen Walker. In the shopping centres and malls try Portmans or Saba, while Cue and Veronica Maine have good collarless versions. Online try the ASOS Pettite range which includes a bright green vegan option that may appeal and The Iconic has some nice doubled breated options.
