How to Wear an Embellished Statement Jacket

Zara Jacket *sold out, Blouse Forever21 (this one is a staple!) , Trousers similar here, Heels in Black here

Answer: Keep the rest simple. I absolutely love this fringed/sequin Zara jacket and it took me over a month to stalk it and get it in my closet as it sold out so fast. Then I encountered a problem: I loved this fantastic statement piece but it didn’t go with anything. Period.

As a girl who loves her statement pieces (jewelry and jackets mostly, occasionally a very loud trouser) I reverted back to the best advice you can have when dealing with such a loud piece: Let the statement (jacket in this case) do the talking and keep the rest simple, basic and clean.

The white, black and nude combo were a natural fit although finding the correct neckline under such a boxy jacket was a bit of a challenge. Usually opposites are good in those cases so that necklines don’t compete. In this case pair a high neck jacket with a low cut blouse. At the end of the day no matter what incredible combos you think you could create with a bold piece remember that you bought it to be the statement, so let it be and stop trying to hard. Thanks for reading and have a fantastic Friday. Cheers!

  1. Thank you for the inspiration! I have a black & metallic tweet jacket with chain detail that’s shaped just like yours & in the months I’ve had it, I haven’t worn it because I could never think of what would look right. Looks like I’ll finally get some wear out of it this fall.

    Love the pants and that you kept the back of the shirt untucked. You look fabulous.

  2. Oh this jacket is sooo incredible! I want one O_O It’s an amazing way to spice up a casual outfit, great styling my dear! 🙂
