If there is one trend that has come up through the ranks of my Instagram feed this year, it’s the belted jacket. If you haven’t hopped on the bandwagon, now’s the time to do so – the belted jacket is not going away any time soon.
Its versatility comes in spades – it can be worn with both fitted and oversized blazers and jackets – mixed and matched with existing belts and sashes in your wardrobe. Designers are releasing jackets that come with matching belts and the high street is laden with different takes on the style.
At a short glance of my Instagram feed, you’ll know I’m no stranger to the belted jacket!
Guilty as charged!
I’ve teamed my Scanlan Theodore crepe knit jacket with a thin tan brown belt that came with another Scanlan jacket in my collection. I love the contrasting but complementary colours (and how I can chip away at the CPW of this jacket by adding another styling method to its tally!).
