The jackets got a new look this spring summer of 2013. For those who love to wear jackets but avoid it in summer time, the solution will be to grab scissors and cut out the sleeves. You might be thinking: Finally an easy DIY project! isn't it?
So, which are the jackets that you should take into consideration? According to the runways there are three essential pieces: Tailored blazers, denim jackets and bikers. You probably have one of these in your closet, therefore, don't hesitate to give them a new shape.
The tailored blazer is a classic piece but sometimes it could be boring, unoriginal, uninteresting, monotonous, lifeless, ... etc (Oh My God! I didn't realise that 'boring' has a lot of synonyms). In order to grant it a modern appearance you can alter it removing the sleeves. To style it, wear a white shirt or go for a plain tshirt, and pair it with staight trousers.
The denim jacket, or the democratic jacket, is a staple in everyone's wardrobe, whether you're seventeen or 40 something, you can rock it equally. Feel free to combine it with everything, from a tshirt dress to a skinny pant and why not a pleated skirt (an early back-to-school look), you might keep in mind that pastel colors suit perfectly the summery season and adds a juvenile aspect.
The biker, even though it's a no-go area in summer because of the insupportable heat, but you can try it on once the weater softens. To alleviate the grunge side of this article allow yourself to change the register with ladylike details, such as wearing a lace dress, or instead bring out your inner olympic spirit picking a jogger and pairing it with a crop tee.
Would you dare to cut the sleeves of your favourites jackets? How would you style them this summer?
