What Is The Most Versatile Colored Jacket?
I often have clients come to me in search of an everyday jacket that can go over jeans, chinos and maybe even slacks. They generally want one jacket to do everything, which is a tall order. This can be done only if your wardrobe has a very consistent color palette. Otherwise, you need three jackets: brown, navy, and grey. The brown jacket will go with blue jeans, khakis, and navy chinos. Depending on the outfit, a brown jacket could also go with grey pants. The navy jacket will go with khakis, light wash denim, and grey pants, but it won;t go with blue jeans because they you will look like a blueberry. Lastly, the grey jacket will go with blue jeans, navy pants, and black pants. Depending on your outfit a grey jacket could also go over khakis. With that said, grey would probably be the most versatile color jacket.
What Kind of Jacket Works For Everyday?
A blazer is a beautiful thing, but it can be too memorable for everyday, too sharp for your personal style, or too edgy for t-shirt and jeans. Plus it rarely works for shorts. In order for a jacket to go with t-shirt and jeans, as well as sharper pants and a collared shirt, it needs to be simple and clean cut. A light weight-leather jacket is a good idea. I also recommend a lean bomber style. As you can see below, many designers are making fantastically modern bomber style jackets that can be an everyday jacket.
