Your man’s pants, shoes and jackets are no longer safe next season. ‘Cause chances are you’re leaving the house in them. Especially the masculine jacket is an easy, stylish fashion item you can throw over almost any look. Whether you combine it with a cocktail dress, a pair of pleated pants or a pencil skirt. You can never go wrong with your man’s jacket.

The so called boyfriend jacket was already popular this summer, yet for fall it has become even manlier. The shoulders have broadened and the length has increased.

At Sonie Rykiel the jacket was part of a suit and seemed to belong to some kind of giant. Preen, Dries van Noten and Bottega Veneta showed large pieces as well. Also, quite a few designers opted for a double breast version.

In case you’re afraid to look too masculine in these jackets we have a few tips to make the jacket appear more feminine:

  1. tuck or roll up your sleeves
  2. wear nothing underneath or at least something with a low v-neck (like Michael Kors showed on the runway)
  3. wear a small belt over your jacket, around the waist to accentuate your silhouette.
  4. add accessories like a brooch on the collar of the jacket
