Styling a collarless jacket

A Chanel style collarless jacket is a classic for a reason. BUT it is not ageless.

If you are new to this style and looking to buy one, here are our styling tips.


We suggest avoiding the tweed styles if you are older, opt instead for a cropped leather version.

Style a leather jacket with jeans or cargo pants.

A cropped jean, trainers and collarless leather jacket is an excellent trans seasonal option.  

Add it to a maxi dress with an up-to-date pair of sunnies for effortless cool style.

Denim is also a good option for this style.

A semi cropped denim jacket will work beautifully with a maxi skirt.


For the office choose a short or longer version.

The longer version should be worn with pants.

Choose a bold colour and a cropped pant to avoid looking matronly!

Pair the jacket with a tailored slim line pant for a polished corporate style.

Highly tailored collarless jackets look incredibly stylish teamed with an over over-sized shirt.

If you are younger, style a tweed version with a tailored pant.

casual style

Create a casual look by wearing the tweed option with jeans or a mini skirt.

A sailor inspired look is a classic way to style this type of jacket when going casual.

Look for jackets with brass buttons down each lapel.

The sailor style collarless jacket looks amazing with 70 style flares and bell bottom pants.

Try a relaxed fit style.

It will look more like a cardigan and is ideal for combining with a floral dress or skirt.

Making a statement

If you are tempted to add a collarless jacket to your wardrobe, consider what you will wear it with.

They often look better with a collared top.

Having said that they look fantastic with a white crew neck t-shirt.

A collarless jacket lends itself to wearing statement drop earrings; scarves and bold statement necklaces.

It is a wonderful option if you are looking to make a statement with your style.
