Start by choosing a silhouette you'll feel comfortable wearing all day, such as a tunic shape, which can be styled in multiple ways e.g. layered over roll necks or jeans. Then look for details that will elevate it for evenings. Rich colours, textured fabrics and demure necklines all exude after-dark refinement.
This is the piece that has the power to transform any outfit, instantly. Whether you prefer timeless or contemporary cuts, opt for a jacket that's immaculately tailored in a neutral hue – brown, navy or camel – to increase your options. Because it will lend polish to everything, from work day dresses to knitwear to denim.
