When the winter sets in, we find ourselves digging out our earmuffs, scarves, gloves, boots, and hats. It’s hard to look forward to all the cold and snow, but there is always one wonderful consolation—winter fashion. Just because the temperature dips doesn’t mean that a woman can’t have fun with her wardrobe! Marketplace undoubtedly carries many fun, stylish jackets to choose from that can be worn during the day or adopted to an evening outfit. Junior Board members Vanitha Sivarajan and Sucheta Misra styled two winter jackets from Marketplace that will keep you cozy while injecting some playfulness in your wardrobe.
Reversible Samira Jacket – Sucheta
Almora Jacket – Vanitha
My personal favorite is the Almora jacket. It is the perfect single-layer black jacket that is versatile, comfortable, and can be dressed up or down. The deep pockets are practical and fun with hand-embroidery. My favorite part of it though, is the unique Ikat pattern of the jacket that will be sure to turn heads. Ikat is a traditional method of weaving that Marketplace artisan women use similarly to tie-dye, except the dye is applied to the threads prior to being woven. The Ikat style can be seen in many countries across different cultures including Latin America and Asia, and is said to possibly date back to being one of the oldest forms of textile patterns. This design of this jacket carries a lot of history and tradition behind it!
