Currently Playing [Jacynthe – Locked Down]

This season, the runway is showcasing a wide range of chic, ladylike and originally styled jackets; designers are introducing various colours, shapes and fabrics to the mix in order to create something fresh, funky and most importantly, wearable.

Styles to watch out for:
Among the most current styles of this season, there are both a variety of straight and sports styles, many of which have been created in short and medium lengths. As well as a number of fitted jackets, there is certainly a style to suit all.

Timeless classic
The denim jacket is one style that is making a comeback for 2013. Similar to the bomber jacket, the classic silhouette of the timeless denim jacket never seems to age, and once again, it is proving to be a wardrobe staple for spring and summer. Double denim looks are still appealing to the masses, regardless of whether you opt for shorts and a shirt or jeans and a waistcoat.

The beauty of the denim jacket is its versatility; you can dress it up or down. Many models were seen sporting the denim look layered over an otherwise classy ensemble, which instantly adds a hit of street flair. Sleeves up! Shortened sleeves teamed with a lengthy coat create an elegant and romantic silhouette and this cut has become one of the predominant styles of this season. When the weather is a little cooler, simply add a pair of fashionably long gloves to the ensemble to finish it off and keep you warm and toasty.

Volume
Volume is rapidly proving to be another key trend this season. Think over-the-top fur collars, solid fabrics and glittering embellishments. The military style has certainly undergone a chic transformation with the addition of jewelled shoulder pads and statement zip adornments.

Animal instinct
Fur jackets have always been adored by women: due to this reason alone, they appear in the collections of virtually every designer. From smooth and fluffy fur styles to overly dramatic visions combining a multitude of fur elements, these jackets make it quite possible to stay stylishly warm this season.
