Coco channel broke the norm in her early days when she was in love and wore her lover’s jacket and trousers and immediately it became an instant hit.

Even though she later designed ladies jackets which had a resemblance to those of men. Up until now, famous designers have come up with different versions of the boyfriend jacket.

The boyfriend jacket is supposed to be a ladies jacket with a touch of masculinity. It is a little bit longer and usually has white and/or stripped material sewn at the sleeve, where it is supposed to be rolled up.

The boyfriend jacket has reached the same levels of popularity as the two fashion trends which influenced it: boyfriend jeans and the boyfriend shirt.

But the boyfriend jacket has found new sophistication and is still seen gracing the catwalks this season.

Boyfriend jackets are a hot trend right now even more than they were last season, because they are very versatile: they can easily be worn casually during the day, or can also be dressed up for any event with very little effort.

Celebrities like Kim Kardashian, Mary Kate Olsen and Kate Moss have all been seen wearing their versions of the boyfriend jackets, and don’t they all look hot? Well, it’s all the better since these jackets come in a wide variety of styles, cuts, colours, and patterns.

Whether going to office or on a night out, the boyfriend jacket can save the day.

The versatility of the boyfriend jacket is that it can be worn on top of a dress whether short or long, skinny jeans, baggy jeans, shorts, three quarters or even ankle length pants, it does not matter.

Nothing looks better paired with a boyfriend jacket than a white blouse. There is something about white blouses, they all look very classy.

A boyfriend jacket paired with white cotton buttoned down blouse looks every inch of an office wear. A white frilly chiffon blouse looks more like a party outfit; depending with the occasion one can choose between the two.

Any lady wearing her boyfriend jacket should know that, this piece of fashion clothing looks better, when the lady is in high heels. Whether it’s the laboutin, high heeled gladiators or high heeled boots- all these can give the lady wearer the classy look she’s been yearning for, and not forgetting a big tote bag to complete the entire look.

It is also necessary to properly accessorize the boyfriend jacket since it almost looks exactly like a man’s jacket. Accessories like a scarf, a long necklace with a large pendant or simple pearls can be a statement piece on a boyfriend jacket.  

And since the boyfriend jacket is usually worn when folded at the sleeves, wearing bangles or bracelets mixing thick and thin sizes together can be a fashion statement on its own so that the hands don’t look too bare.

Whether you are going for a meeting or an evening out, don’t shy away from trying out the boyfriend’s jacket to complement your outfit just for a change, the boyfriend jacket is still a hot cake on the fashion trend this season, so grab yours today and be in the technical know-how bench in the fashion scene!
