This season has been privy to a fair number of trends. At Shonamac, we’ve seen several of the bigger trends coming through the store but one look that stands out has been the use of versatile cropped jackets styled in a wide variety of looks. From Alaia to Valentino, we’ve noticed our cropped jackets collection being increasingly picked up by ladies who are looking to create multiple looks, adding just enough coverage without any heaviness. Perfect for summer.
Thought about adding a chic cropped jacket to your luxury collection?
Whatever your style, jackets are a versatile item that should be able to partner with a range of different looks. Whether you style them with tailored shorts and wedges for a summer evening dinner or add some coverage to your arms over your favourite maxi dress, a cropped jacket is the summer essential, even we didn’t realise you needed. Until now.
The best thing about a simple cropped jacket? You can even throw it over your most comfortable jeans and a crisp white tee to update and dress up the simplest of looks.
Here, we’ll take you through just a couple of our current cropped jackets.
Keep It Neutral
These pure silk jackets from both Chloe and Valentino are the perfect neutral hue to allow you to style with a plethora of palettes, giving you plenty of options for wear. The beautifully simple, collarless and cropped styling keeps the look neatly tailored, lending itself perfectly to a more formal occasion look as well.
Make a Statement
Adding a bold print to a simple look is a great way to make a style statement with a cropped jacket. Unusually cut with an asymmetric fasten at the neck, this preloved Dries Van Noten silk and cotton jacket has a simple palette with a stand-out print. Easy to add to anything from a simple black dress to your favourite denim, this style exudes versatility, giving you the extra coverage you’re looking for with a soft, luxe and lightweight fabric finish.
For a bolder monochrome look, this stunning black and white Alaia jacket adds some stylish geometry to a simple outfit. Complete with a cape detail through the back, it’s just as easy to dress this jacket up as it is to wear with anything from denim to wide-leg, white linen trousers.
Play with Utility
The utility trend has been huge this season from all-in-one jumpsuits to high-waist cargo trousers and this edgy Saint Laurent cropped safari jacket ticks all the boxes. Perfect to style with white or cream linen, denim or even simple black, this military-style jacket exudes a runway-ready look. With cropped, cuffed sleeves and a cinching belted waistband, you could even style this over a maxi dress for just a touch of extra coverage and added shape.
Style them up or dress them with your most casual outfits. Give your wardrobe a summer-ready update with a versatile cropped jacket. Come and take a look at the full Shonamac collection for preloved designer fashion from anyone from YSL to Chloe and so much more.
