An Understanding on Jackets & Its Multitude of Uses

Jackets are used to describe attire which reaches the hip or waist section of the body, and is made up of long or short sleeves, with fastenings or buttons on its front. A jacket is usually made up of a lighter fabric compared to that of a coat, and is slightly less insulated apart from also being a tighter fit to the torso. Whatever it may be, the jacket is definitely an article that has been making waves as a fashionable clothing piece, though it can also be used as a means for protective clothing.
When you go about and make your own jacket, the first thing which you would need to do is decide on the type of jacket you are looking to customise. An arctic jacket, for example, which is best used during chilly winter seasons, can be personalised with your own name or favourite graphic design, and be made into unique personalised jackets. A blazer, on the other hand, is a simplified version of a suit jacket as it is more casual in nature, but it can also be personalised with unique trimmings on its jacket.
Did you know that the denim jacket is also fondly called the Levi’s jacket? This is one kind of jacket which could be used to define your own personal style whilst you go about and make your own jacket. Denim jackets are generally made with buttoned band cuffs, similar to that of a men’s shirt. Its waistband, on the other hand, can be easily adjusted using the buttons that are available on the denim jacket itself.
Leather jackets, on the other hand, are usually made out of the tanned hides of animals like antelope, lamb and sheep. You can make your own jacket with a beautiful piece of a leather jacket, and have your name studded onto the back of the jacket for a biker chick look, or alternatively have your favourite image emblazed onto it to represent what is uniquely you.
Another favourite among ladies when it comes to jackets is the trench coat. Although its name suggests that it is a coat, the fashion statement it makes as you wear a trench coat and pass a door is definitely something which is spectacular. A trench coat usually consists of a minimum of ten buttons. This double breasted coat can be made with fabric that is tan, khaki, black or even beige in colour. The cuffs straps of a trench coat are often found on its raglan sleeves, belt as well as shoulder straps. Despite its initial purpose as a windbreaker, a rain jacket and even shelter for one’s body during a winter storm, the trench coat is now a great outfit to personalise and wear during autumn seasons.
