In the year of 2009, most of us couldn’t create an outfit without wet look leggings. However, the New Year wiped the slate clean and we waved good bye to the leggings that had us all smitten. Even Grazia urged their Fashionistas to never wear leggings of any kind as they were tirelessly overdone. As expected the wet look has come back around already but this time, in the form of coats and parka jackets.
This Fashionista has combined a classic, feminine look of skinny jeans and knee-high boots with her quirky wet look jacket. It is important to wear contrasting textures with this nylon material. Clothes with a matte effect like denim jeans and matte leather boots are perfect examples of this.
Wet look jackets suit both Fashionistas and Fashionistos so it’s no wonder that they are popping up all over our campus at the moment. You can find loads at shopstyle.com or if you can’t break yourself away from fur, try this wet look jacket with a fur trim from French Connection.
Hint: Always buy a coat to match your current wardrobe, never change your wardrobe to match the coat. You’ll save money and be a lot happier leaving the house every morning in an outfit that is complimented by your new, gorgeous, coat.
