Jackets — we all have a love-hate relationship with them. Do them matchy-matchy and you risk ending up looking like you’ve just stepped out of a presentation or job interview. Wear them the relaxed and sloppy way, and you end up looking like you’re wearing something borrowed – and not in an ironic fashion kind of way.
So why exactly do we need one good jacket, stat? Because the street style pack has spoken. Being sharply dressed in one is the look to be seen in this season. We did the math, and the structured Balenciaga houndstooth jacket from Fall/Winter ’16 is the most photographed number.
But as we show in the next few pages, owning one in a heritage British print will go beyond this season too.
