Jacket required

The look of the moment is definitely a jacket – now we don?t mean the sort of souped-up brass-buttoned blazer you?d find in Joan Collin?s wardrobe a?la Dynasty era. The appeal of the jacket now is much more subtle. Whether they?re boxy, boyfriend style or soft and easy, or slim and fitted they have to be tailored no matter what. Don?t just think you can borrow your boyfriend or brother?s jackets? no way! It has to fit you and fit you well. We recommend Witchery for some great styles and Dotti as well. You can always find something in Dotti that fits well and is reasonably priced. Go to www.dotti.com.au

to find out where the nearest Dotti is to you. Once you?ve found the jacket try it over a pair of cigarette pants or layered skirt. The result? The kind of look that will have people asking you all night where you got your style.Jumper Time View the toasty winter jumpers below
