We all need a jacket or some layers in every season – to protect ourselves from the sun, for warmth, and sometimes just for the way they look. Some of them are evergreen and our go-to pieces of clothing for the entire year. Hence, that calls for a checklist – a list of the different types of jackets there are and that every girl needs in her closet. These have become pretty necessary because each type does its own thing in making a difference to our outfit and silhouette.
Now, if you are ready – let’s look at some of them. Ladies, make a note!
10 Different Types of Jackets For Women
1. Trench Coat
A trench coat has to top this list or any other list when we talk about a timeless and classic piece of clothing every girl should own. Camel colored trench is as elegant and polished as it can get, and it goes with any outfit. It keeps you warm on a crisp fall evening and stylish on a breezy winter morning if you need to head to a brunch. Most of them are usually waterproof, and thus, you have your answer for monsoons too. You can wear it over sweaters and other winter clothing, and pair it with anything really to amp up your look. A tote bag and boots with a trench coat is a match made in heaven. Not just camel colored, but orange, red, and yellow are some fascinating choices of colors for a trench coat. Nothing sexier than a woman who struts around in a red or yellow trench!
2. Leather Jacket
Leather jackets come in handy for all those times when you want to wear something edgy yet keep it casual. Or when you want to keep it effortlessly stylish but do not want to put in too much effort. Or for all those times when you just need a layer – the leather jacket is your answer. It comes in more variants than we could ever ask for and they all look equally sexy – be it buttoned, zipped, open or belted. Black is almost synonymous with leather jackets, but brown, red, and gray are other equally stylish choices when it comes to a leather jacket.
3. Denim Jacket
Most of them do not even mention this when they talk about bare necessities and everyday essentials because they assume that you own one of these – it goes without saying. A denim jacket goes with dresses, gowns, jeans, and shirts alike, and how! White, light washed, sleeveless, and cropped style are some incredibly stylish choices when it comes to denim jackets.
4. Bomber Jacket
Bomber or biker style jackets are considered uber chic and tomboyish while being feminine at the same time, which is a combination to die for, if you ask me. And no, you don’t have to wear these only when riding a bike. These have evolved, and they need to be in your closet. They look dapper on pencil skirts, ripped jeans, maxi skirts, and shorts – and everything else you can think of.
5. Quilted Jacket
Quilted jackets hit that sweet spot between keeping you warm, stylish, and edgy all at the same time. These come especially handy during fall and the few weeks of winter where your puffed up jackets are too heavy, and leather jackets don’t suffice. Since fall and spring are all about being fashionable, you need to get one of these and keep it handy.
6. Cashmere Or Wool Jacket
If you are in New York, Chicago or up North, you know you are preparing for a long winter that is going to last more than you would like. But hey, since we cannot do too much about that, we can beat it with fashion, look stylish, and have fun anyway. And, what better way to do that than with a woolen jacket or a shrug that keeps you warm like nothing ever does but also looks elegant?
An overcoat is your winter version of a trench coat – it is long, classy, stylish, and is always thick enough to protect you from freezing winters. It is one of the most elegant outerwear pieces of clothing a woman can own, and the best part about it is nobody cares what you are wearing inside – pair it with a stylish woolen scarf and ankle length boots. You get them in all ranges and wearing a long-classy overcoat with leather gloves and boots to a fine-dining place or a Christmas party will say such great things about your style without you saying anything.
8. Faux-Fur Jacket
Apart from your essential overcoats, you need things like a faux-fur jacket that is stylish and feminine, and sets you and your outfit apart wherever you go. If you are into fashion, you know that pink, blush, etc. are some obvious choice of colors when it comes to faux-fur jackets. But, wine-red, yellow, and whites look sophisticated and stylish as well.
9. Evening Coat
Evening coats are more than just a layer on your outfit. They make you look like someone who knows her fashion game and is on top of things. An evening coat can be anything from a velvet blazer, a black tweed jacket, a long sequined overcoat, etc., that marries your entire outfit either by blending into the gear or by standing out. However, a black blazer that fits you perfectly is a choice of evening coat that will never fail you.
10. Puffy Jacket
From oversized puffy jackets to off-shoulders – puffy jackets have come a long way from just being winter essentials. Designers like Alexander McQueen continue to take these to a whole new level. A sleeveless red puffy jacket or shiny silver full sleeves, cuffed at the hands, is something every girl needs in her closet, especially if you are living in cities that get a little too chilly during winters.
