Perfect for fall
Now that fall is officially here, it is time to make friends with nifty layering once again. As the mercury begins its downward decline and the weather gets chilly, the annual ritual of digging through your wardrobe to bring the soft cashmeres and flowing silhouettes out from the back is all set to commence. There is an entire world of sartorial possibilities to be explored, and leading the pack are long jackets—with ruffles, flairs and dramatic belt sashes to go with them. Ready to dive in?
It would be unfair to say that this wardrobe basic is back in fashion, because it had never really left the trend charts in the first place. Approved by A-listers and street style stars like, the humble long jacket has earned its stripes as a fuss-free staple to cinch together any outfit. Just ask Sonakshi Sinha, who elevated a basic white tank with a chikankari embroidered jacket, or Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, who left her signature blue denim at home and favoured flowy jackets, fringe, boho prints and motorcycle boots for the promotional run of her latest film, Fanney Khan. Both Alia Bhatt and Anushka Sharma swear by the virtues of slouchy grey jackets when going in for the long haul at the airport too. Still need some celebrity inspiration to ace the trend?
