A womens spring jacket in a flattering color and fit polishes your seasonal wardrobe..
Look for a good fit, careful finishing, and a quality fabric. A womens spring jacket fits you perfectly is more than a fashion statement; it's an investment you can't afford not to make.
A jacket in a classic style can last your many years. This reduces the cost-per-wearing. (See basic wardrobe planning).
Check the seams to make sure they are tight. Threads dangling from button holes, cuffs, collars, and inside seams may indicate a garment that will fall apart after few wearings.
Take good care of your clothing investments.
Air out your womens spring jacket after each wearing, before you return it to the closet.
Get spots and stains professionally cleaned.
Never store a garment for the season without first having it cleaned.
Here are some jacket suggestions for your fashion archetype. Take the Fashion Archetype Quiz to find out what womens spring jacket best suits your inner goddess.
Metis is the perfect corporate wife and a sophisticate. She can plan a corporate party for 50 or score big on the tennis courts or links.
She prefers neutral colors and classic designs in high-quality fabrics. A Chanel suit would appear to Metis.
Metis also has a selection of blazers in various colors for all seasons in her closet. These may be worn with casual twill slacks or a velvet cocktail skirt.
Few things are more versatile than a well-chosen womens spring jacket.
A cost-conscious Metis undoubtedly knows a trick or two about where to find really cheap designer clothes.
A kimono-style silk or cotton jacket is the just thing for arty, creative Hecates.
The style will flatter many body types and be appropriate for a variety of business, social, and casual occasions.
Stores such as Novica and National Geographic offer garments with handmade details, as well as sharing profits with global workers who preserve these crafts.
If you are crafty, you can add such details yourself. Some suggestions:
Jackets are a goddess's best friend if your type is Artemis. A photographer's jacket, with pockets everywhere, is sure to please women who prefer sporty styles.
Other good looks for sporty looks are the classic blazer, the leather scuba jacket, or a suede fringed jacket for the horsey set -- or the woman who wants to look like rodeos are her way of life.
If you are a Hestia type, you sometimes feel as if you live in an SUV. You spend hours in a car, catering to grand-children, going to church events, and enjoying time with the gals. What you need is an easy-to-wear jacket with a floral print to brighten your wardrobe.
Look for neutral colored slacks and skirts that minimize spreading hips to wear with this bright womens spring jacket.
An easy care fabric, such as a polyester microfiber or cotton-Dacron or cotton-Spandex blend, resist wrinkles and looks good no matter where you go.
This year should be good shopping for the Aphrodite style archetype because feminine touches are on-trend.
Look for touches of lace and ruffled edging on collars or cuffs. If you don't find it, consider visiting a fabric store and slipstiching trim onto a jacket you enjoy wearing.
Kali is the destroyer and creator. She's the friend who seems to routinely recreate herself. Expect the unexpected from Kali.
New looks this spring include patchwork designs that integrate lace, crochet, or hidden dimensions. I highly recommend some do-it-yourself touches to get the truly unique.
I'm in love with The Renegade Seamstress site. She offers clear directions for such simple projects as making fabric flowers to adorn your womens spring jacket or a knit ribbon to stitch around the neckline of tee-shirt.
If you have a jacket with a hole, you might consult this tutorial about Japanese mending that turns a tear into handcrafted art.
I post links such as these on the Fashion After 50 Facebook page.
Kali is most likely to wear a sequin jacket to a funeral and a fleece blazer to a formal dinner. Bright colors and edgy fashions charactertize her look. Count on Athena, on the other hand, to turn up in something that is appropriate for the occasion.
A swingy shawl collar tuxedo jacket is perfect for a goddess who needs a short-waisted silhouette.
The simple shawl tuxedo-style collar embodies the grace of the Sophia fashion archetype.
The 1930s fashion illustration shows a shawl collar jacket with a ruffled jabot blouse. The simple lines of a shawl neckline is perfect for showing off a top with pretty details or a necklace.
You can find a womens spring jacket that is just right for your fashion archetype. Or add a jacket that takes you outside your comfort zone and see what happens.
Winter jackets are on sale and new designs for spring/summer are filing the racks. Look for something that is affordable, flattering, and that expands your seasonal wardrobe in a useful way.
