The New Jacket Shape For Spring

This post contains affiliate links.

There is a new jacket shape, to add to your Spring capsule wardrobe, that has quietly crept in this season. You may not even have noticed because the difference is subtle, but the new jacket shape can be found in a variety of budgets and fabrics. Have you guessed yet?

The new jacket shape has a tie waist and most don’t have buttons. The best thing about it is that it is supremely flattering and suits all body shapes. If you have a small waist and want to show it off, or if you want to create one, cinch it in with the belt. However, if you are an Apple shape just leave it untied. The shape is more relaxed  and in most cases it comes in a softer fabric, so even I (who hate to be restricted in a tailored jacket) would be happy in one of these jackets.

It works for a variety of events too. From the smart cream version shown below, for occasions or work, to the smart casual leather version or the relaxed denim option.
