The Best Jacket Fabrics For Winter
From Traditional, Cosy Wool And Sporty Winter Jackets
As the season eases into winter, so jackets (or blazers in the United States) really come into their own as adaptable wear during the day and evening.
Heavier winter fabric constructions work perfectly as sharp and shapely outdoors jackets during the transitional weeks of Autumn. The more casual fabrics can be core components of a layered look thrown over a simple outfit, giving your style a subtle boost and colour.
