Amy Zerner’s Fashion Sense: Boxy Jacket Trend

I love a fashion that is easy, comfortable, and practical—and special! I was happy to see that boxy cropped jackets are one of the Spring 2014 fashion trends. Ultra-chic and dependable, these are timeless pieces to add to your arsenal of grab-and-go garments.

Cropped boxy jackets are perfect to wear to work or for an evening out. Mix this shape with a dress, pants or skirts, fitted or flared, while keeping in mind the proportions of your height and body type.

Whether the piece is printed or has a contrast of fabrics and trims, this jacket style makes the perfect statement when worn over monchromatic clothing.

Balance more fitted looks with a flared skirt and bulkier jackets with more fitted skirts. Try this cropped silhouette in a textured tweed, tasteful metallic or a great graphic print to liven up your wardrobe and add some extra special interest to your basic tops and bottoms: tailored trousers, pencil skirts and your favorite jeans.

There are a lot of great versions in the stores right now and I’ve designed many couture versions for Bergdorf Goodman, where I have my collection.

A woman can’t have too many jackets, can she?
