HOW TO WEAR 2018 JACKETS

By Lakeisha Goedluck, 20 April 2018

The time has (finally) come to add your winter layers. Say farewell to your failsafe T-shirt stash and weekend singlet, because it’s all about stocking up on 2018-ready jackets. From a classic Harrington to a steezy overhead style, here’s how to rock autumn’s most popular outerwear silhouettes.

Over and out

If you’re a fan of streetwear, you’ve probably already got a few overhead jackets in your arsenal. A silhouette plucked straight from the 90s, whether in a colour-block design or a rave-ready glow-in-the-dark version, the overhead jacket is the wavy, waterproof layer to see you through autumn’s temperamental weather.

To sartorially transition into the season nicely, go for one in a subdued colour palette. Then, team your overhead jacket with indigo slim-fit jeans to add a little contrast to your ’fit. On foot, continue paying homage to the 90s and pick a pair of old-school kicks: Nike Air Max 95 Ultra trainers in a dark colourway should do the trick.

Traditional touch

For decades, the Harrington jacket has served as the ultimate smart-casual layer. First introduced to the menswear scene back in the 1930s by UK-based company Baracuta, the G9 jacket, as it was originally known, was a favourite amongst golfers before it was later adopted by various subcultures in the 50s and beyond.

Now, a mainstream fashion mainstay, the Harrington is guaranteed to add a refined element to any getup. Go for one in a heritage check pattern to give your ensemble a grandadcore edge, but choose streetwear cuts to make up the rest of your look – think side-stripe joggers, chunky-soled kicks and a cross-body bag in a standout colour.

Laid-back layer

As soon as autumn hits, it’s time to get out the striped garms. And what better way to include the staple pattern in your outfit than to layer up with a slick pinstripe coach jacket? Similar to the Harrington in the fact that it lies somewhere between sophisticated and chilled, wear one to add some structure to your getups.

A staple navy number should seamlessly slot into your wardrobe, so rock your coach jacket over a multicoloured half-zip top for a look with some flavour. On your bottom half, carry on the hype for stripes with a pair of adidas joggers. And, to finish, don light-blue sneakers to give your aesthetic a touch of tonality.
