Fashion failure: 5 signs your down jacket is outdated (and what to replace it with)
The ability to style a down jacket in winter looks is a real art. You need to pay attention to every little detail. For example, long oversized down jackets with a massive print or glossy material are a risky choice. All these styles visually distort the silhouette and "shorten" the legs. Therefore, they make fashionistas (especially petite or short women) look more like penguins than ladies from the catwalk.
There are also models of simply outdated jackets, so it's time to replace them with relevant ones. Read the OBOZ.UA article to find out which ones.
1. With a belt
If you put on a coat or a trench coat with a belt, it looks aesthetically pleasing and impressive (just like 20-30 years ago). But the combination of a belt and a down jacket in winter 2024 is not the best idea. Designers suggest choosing loose-fitting models so that nothing restricts your movements. The colors of the jacket (milk, powder, light blue or pink) will add tenderness and romance to the outfit.
2. With a fur collar
Forget about down jackets with fur or eco-fur collars. They have long been out of fashion, and they visually increase body volume and reduce height. Replace them with products with a turn-down collar or without it at all. Sheepskin coats or fur coats with long pile look equally interesting and have just begun to gain popularity.
3. With stripes or ribbons
Down jackets with colored stripes of fabric (stripes) or decorated with ribbons have long since disappeared from branded store windows. The fact is that minimalism is now in trend, and such design elements do not fit into it. Let it be plain down jackets without unnecessary elements.
4. With fur pockets
This decor is too infantile. So are hats with ears or neon-colored items with cartoon characters. Down jackets with no or barely visible pockets look more refined and balanced on adult women.
5. With shortened sleeves
First of all, such down jackets are impractical. You will not compensate for the length of the sleeves with warm sweaters: it will be cold. Secondly, they are very difficult to style. Even if you put together a total look, the shortened puff sleeves will distort the proportions of the figure, which will look extremely strange.
