Yes, you can actually wear a winter jacket in Singapore even when it’s hot out. And there’s no better time to do it than now – during the monsoon season.

Button up a belted coat and wear it as a long-line blouse. This way, you won’t technically be layering up. And yet, you’ll still look super chic as you match it with tights or skinny jeans, a pair of stylish calf boots and a statement purse to boot.

#2: Opt for a cropped jacket

Cropped outerwear pieces will elongate your body when paired with layers in contrasting colours and high-waisted bottoms. Team this denim number with retro stripe patterns with an A-line midi skirt and a pair of tie-up pumps for an Autumn-perfect ensemble that’ll keep you snug come rain or shine.
