The key to creating a sophisticated look with short-length jackets lies in layering and showing a glimpse of the hem!

Short-length jackets come in a wide range of styles, including blousons, jean jackets, and riders, so it is difficult to narrow down the key to dressing them, but the technique of creating a cozy look by letting a mid-layer or inner layer peek out from the hem can be applied to any style of short-length jacket. However, this technique can be applied to any style of short-length jacket. This technique can be applied to any style of short-length jacket. By emphasizing the layered look, this technique creates a sophisticated impression and makes the most of the short-length jacket’s unique qualities.

Key point (1): “Use the same colors to emphasize the contrast between the short-length jacket and the coordinating coordinate, which is the main feature of the outfit.

In order to accentuate the presence of the short jacket as the star of the outfit, it is a good idea to combine the innerwear and bottoms in the same color. Of course, it is essential to use colors that emphasize the contrast with the short-length jacket. As shown in the sample coordinates picked up here, white is the color of choice for a good start, while black is a receding color that can be used to create a tightening effect.

Dressing Point 2: “The silhouette of the bottoms is vital for short-length jackets!

To emphasize the silhouette of the bottoms and differentiate them from the long overcoats and warm outerwear that are the mainstay of winter coordination, short-length jackets are a good choice. For a stylish look, aim for a straight, loose silhouette that falls straight down from the armpits to the hems. For a smart, urban look, aim for a slim tapered silhouette like the one worn in the coordinate below.

Dressing Point 3: “Add a mid-layer insert to the short-length jacket to give the styling a twist.

To refresh the look of a short-length jacket, add a down vest, cardigan, or flannel shirt as a mid-layer. In particular, the difference between zip-front and button-front jackets will help to dispel any sense of monotony or drabness, and will add a stylish touch to the look with a touch of intonation. The key to selecting a mid-layer jacket is to choose one that is close in length to the short-length jacket.
