The pocket jacket is a Chanel classic. For the runway shows it is done in a large amount of different shapes, fabrics and colors season after season. Let s take a closer look at 3 of the most beautiful and versatile jackets from the Chanel Dallas 2014 collection!
A dark brown leather like jacket stood out for me. The silhouette is simple, the mens wear inspired lapel works with all imaginable shirt collars and the single breasting allows to wear the jacket open or closed. The vintage looking material is very interesting! In fact it isn t leather. Its a coated cashmere! Except very curvy woman almost every body shape will look good with that style of jacket. A-line body shapes can combine it with a pair of flared pants. Boxy shapes can wear it with slouchy jeans or boyfriend style jeans.
A little bit of a similar shape was also made in burgundy tweed. This one is especially great for the evening worn with a skinny or boyfriend, black leather pant.
Plaid jackets made of coated cashmere were another standout. They came in a collar less and a lapel version. Both looked great online and reminded me a little of the fabulous Saint Laurent plaid shirts from last fall. Although those jackets seem to be quite timeless they are not only in line with the cowboys and indians trend but also with the current tendency towards grunge inspired fashion.
