When it comes to outerwear, having a variety of jacket styles in your wardrobe is essential. Not only do different jackets serve different purposes, but they also allow you to mix and match your outfits to create a range of looks. Let’s take a look at five jacket styles that every man should own.
- The Bomber Jacket
The bomber jacket is a classic coat that has been around since the early 1900s. It features a fitted silhouette, zipper front, ribbed cuffs and hem, and pockets. Bomber jackets are usually made of a durable, water-resistant material such as nylon or leather and are perfect for those who don’t want to overthink their outfits. If your goal is to take a casual approach to style, the bomber jacket is a must have accessory. Simply pop one on over a t-shirt and jeans to achieve maximum, effortless, cool.
- The Denim Jacket
A denim jacket is a wardrobe staple that every man should own. It is typically made of blue denim and features a collar, button front, and pockets. Denim jackets are durable and work well as a layering piece, making them perfect for cooler weather. They, like bomber jackets, are a casual option, but unlike bomber jackets they take a bit more effort to style. A good rule of thumb to remember is blue denim jacket on blue jean pants should see the darkest denim on top. (Hint: fashion rules are meant to be broken. Feel free to experiment to suit your taste.)
- The Chore Coat
A chore coat is a type of work jacket that is designed to be functional and durable. It is usually made of heavy-duty fabric such as canvas or denim and features a front button closure, pockets, and a boxy fit. Chore coats are popular for their versatility and rugged style, making them a great choice for both casual and business casual occasions – depending on material/how you style them.
- The Harrington Jacket
The Harrington jacket is a classic style that features a zipper front, ribbed cuffs and hem, and a collar. It is typically made of a lightweight, water-resistant material such as cotton or polyester and has a slim fit. The Harrington jacket’s claim to fame seasons are spring and fall. Great cool weather options that work well to maintain clean silhouettes in trendy fashion.
- The Camel Coat
A camel coat is a stylish and sophisticated outerwear option that is perfect for cooler weather. It is typically made of a soft, warm fabric such as wool or cashmere and features a neutral camel color. Camel coats are incredibly versatile. They can dress up jeans and a hoodie, add stylish flare to 3-piece suits, and tackle everything in between.
