Button Up
Remember the trim Virat Kohli in the famous clothing commercial? Go traditional with the Nehru jacket. “Jackets look best on loose silhouettes to add definition,” says designer Chandni Sahi. “Go for khadi, or satin, leaving the first button undone for a cooler look.” Designer Natasha J says, “Button up for formal events. For a sangeet night, keep the buttons open and show off a contrast kurta.”

Colour Code
Says fashion designer Kunal Anil Tanna, “Powder blue, lemon, peach or pastel pink make for an elegant look during the day. For parties, choose midnight blue, rich purple or emerald green. Jackets look sharp in ivory or shades of beige, but avoid contrasting colours with the rest of your attire.”

Style File
“Slip on raw silk, khadi, bamboo fabrics... in vogue in lighter shades. The shirt jacket is popular, with leather jackets hot on the winter circuit,” says Lina Mane. “Shimmer and metallic shades work beautifully for parties,” says Natasha. “Choose linen, men’s suiting fabric, cotton variants... Go with a bomber jacket; or a single or double-breasted jacket with a twist of lace/ print for quirkiness.”

Sharp and Chic
“For day wear, stick to cotton or linen or spun silk in light textures and then for evenings, heavier textures in patchwork, quilting, smocking. Raw silk or jute in a classic button down or embroidered buttons looks stylish. A bandhgala, or a waistcoat bundi jacket works great. Jackets look best on a kurta and Aligarhi pants, in off-whites. Try shirts with pleated pants, short kurta with flat front pants…” says Kunal

Length Matters
“Your jacket should sit at your waist line. A longer jacket makes you look shorter,” says Natasha. Says Anoli, “The jacket should sit right on top of your hips. You can wear it longer if you want,but never shorter.”

So, take your pick and add a spot of charm to your winter dressing.
