“Curly” Jacket

Hello everyone,

Have you yet spotted the perfect boucle jacket that will protect you against the summer breeze or the office chill? Boucle (from French “to curl”) jacket has been re-invented and has made a comeback with a bang.  Boucle refers to the yarn the jacket is made of and specifically the two-three threads used to create this yarn.  One thread is usually looser than the others, creating a bumpier look. That multidimensional texture has inspired fabric makers to come up with new fabrics that will fit everyone’s taste and budget.

1) “Too conservative for me” – No way. Pair with cropped skinny jeans, a simple tank top and flirty ballet flats for a more relaxed look. Or take it to the next level by pairing with 4-inch heels and a pearl top. This is my “having fun with the girls” look. It is definitely girly, right?

2) For the office – If you wish to keep it stylish for the office, yet cool, replace the knee – length skirt with an acceptable miniskirt. By keeping the shirt out, I was trying to achieve less structured and formal look.

3) Casual Friday – This is my Casual Friday go-to outfit. Dark wash boot-cut jeans, paired with a dress shirt and topped with a boucle jacket. Sounds plain? Not when you are creating a layering by combining similar colors and contrasting textures.

As you can see, I have a weakness to monochromatic (one-hue) pastel pairings. I can wear mint, lavender, and pink all day, every day. How would you pair a boucle or like-boucle jacket?

    Such lovely looks with the same jacket! 🙂 I have two boucle jackets and although it has been too warm for them recently it will cool down enough for me to wear them soon 🙂
