These days there are plenty of options for fashion-forward gentlemen when it comes to outerwear, specifically jackets. Alternative fashion trends abound, and it has never been easier to find stylish garments that help you look the part on every occasion.
So when you are planning your vacations for next year, whether you are looking at the best places to cruise or packing for a chic European city break, here are some of the best casual jackets for 2022 to keep you looking your best.
The Bomber Jacket
A timeless classic, the bomber has been a style hit since the 50s and takes its influence from military fashion. With a wide variety of styles, from varsity jackets to the iconic Alpha Industries bomber, it is a uniquely flexible fashion choice, perfect for spring or autumn when the weather is mild.
Bomber jackets should fit well, allowing some layering but without being baggy. They work extremely well in conjunction with casual sportswear or with a button down shirt – they are truly one of the most adaptable jackets around!
The Leather Jacket
A leather jacket is a seriously must-have piece for any gent who considers themselves any sort of a fashionista. A true statement item, it conveys effortless cool, a devil-may-care attitude, and a rakish, adventurous sense of style.
Leather jackets work well for more casual affairs (although a sleek bomber style with formal trousers and a pressed shirt can be quite smart), and can be worn light, for spring, or heavy, for winter.
The Denim Jacket
Denim jackets feel extremely contemporary, but they have actually been around since the late 19th century! Originally designed as a hard wearing material for workers, denim jackets are now a style classic, popularized by the iconic Levi’s brand.
Denim jackets can be paired with almost anything, thanks to the versatility of the wash and fades. As an inherently casual garment it works best on relaxed, informal occasions, combined with a t-shirt and dark trousers. Daring fashionistas might attempt the denim-on-denim look, which can work incredibly well if done right! While predominantly a light jacket, suited best for spring or autumn, a denim jacket can be worn as a mid-layer, under a more bulky parka or overcoat.
Picking the right jacket to compliment your own personal style doesn’t have to be a chore, and with the above guide you will be able to look stylish all year round.
