If the pictures on the left are making you wonder what has jackets to do in this weather, take a note from international designers such as Matthew Williamson, Antonio Berardi and brand Mulberry, all of whom showcased some cheerful jackets and summer blazers on the spring-summer runway 2012.
Indeed, this summer, designers, both international and back home, seem to have discovered a newfound love for stylish jackets made of comfortable summery fabrics. Recently seen sporting summer jackets with short dresses were actors Malaika Arora Khan, Bipasha Basu and Jacqueline Fernandez.
Talking about the trend, designer Sanchita Ajjampur says, “Cropped and boxy summer jackets, short-sleeved jackets, zipped jackets and lace jackets are in vouge this year. Pair them with summer dresses, girly rompers, shorts and sheer tops or basic blue denims.”
Agrees Jaypreet Kaur Sawhney of Trendy Divva. “Jackets made of nets, linen, muslin and cotton are popular choices this season. For a party look, pair a peplum-styled jacket and a lace top with a slim-fit jeans,” she says. For a casual look, try jacket in neon colour.
