Sports Jacket Trends Winter 2020
Winter in Melbourne is looking a little different this year. As we find ourselves working from home or going into the office less frequently, we also find that our wardrobe needs are changing. Because of this, I have decided to showcase some of my favorite new trends in Sports Jackets. Remember that a sports jacket is a jacket that stands on its own. It does not belong to a suit and therefore does not have matching trousers. This is perfect for the winter season as you can opt for a heavier, warmer, and a more textured fabric that will keep you warm and looking stylish.
In terms of the styling of your sports jacket, remember that with bespoke and made-to-measure jackets, there is a range of options available. These include single or double-breasted, notched or peaked lapels, working buttonholes, and side or center vents. In keeping with a more relaxed style for the intention of smarter casual wear, I would opt for a three-over-two button, notched lapel with patch pockets and an unlined jacket, but we can talk more about that in person.
When looking at trends, I like to look at colours first. Whilst the classic black, navy, and greys are always prominent, this season I love the addition of the more natural shades of brown, burgundy, and green. You’ll see these colours represented beautifully in the images selected for you below.
The next biggest trend is pattern and texture. You’ll see that this season large checks are still very much present, as are textured weaves such as herringbone, boucle, and hopsack. All designed for warmth and a luxurious feel.
