5+ Ways to Wear a Statement Jacket: Cheetah Alembika Jacket
Even a statement jacket should be able to be worn in many different ways. Whether that means you change the silhouette of the item or pair it with all different colors, I have ideas for both.
Animal print comes back every season because it is such a versatile neutral. Heck, even the original three models have worn statement jackets on the blog in the past. You would think that I wouldn’t need another one; however, my other one is longer and darker. So I thought this one would be worn even more here in Arizona.
Make sure to check my site for different print mix ideas for styling this jacket too.
Options With This Cheetah Statement Jacket
As usual, I wanted to see if I could wear it a couple of different ways. I started with 3 ways all with my black dress since that would be the most popular color to wear with it.
Worn As Intended
This is how the statement jacket is designed to be worn. It has a one-button and loop closure which closes the front panels nicely to keep you warm. Even though it’s “short” it’s not cropped, as it comes to the top of my hips.
Tie It Up
Since the jacket is roomy, I decided to tie it up as I do with many of my tops and kimonos.
This faux fur jacket is thicker so I used hair elastic instead of clear elastics.
Insider tip: Even though my hair doesn’t use hair elastics, I like to buy them just for this reason. This kind of package is my favorite so I have a couple of different colors that can blend into what I’m wearing.
Button It In the Back
By playing around, I found I could button it behind me to create more of a shrug look.
Insider tip: Button the jacket first, and then slip your arms in the sleeves leaving all of the material in the back. You might try this with other jackets in your closet if they are roomy.
Now Let’s Talk Colors With This Statement Jacket
You’ve seen this animal print with the required black. But because it’s made up of browns and blacks, it’s considered neutral and would pair well with so many colors.
This specific print is a warmer “cheetah” which is why I chose it. Therefore, it can help to style it with other warmer colors to start.
What other colors would work:
1-Mustard yellow would match because that’s the background color. In fact, it reminds me of my mustard jeans which I showcased in 5 color combinations last fall.
5-Check out how I wore it with dark green too in my daily outfit post on Tuesday.
Of course, I opted for a bright red as another option to go with this coat.
Then I wanted to get more creative with this animal print. I have 2 print mix ideas on my site that will surprise you.
Even if you aren’t a big fan of animal print or this brand, I hope you gleaned some fun ideas for color combinations along with getting creative wearing a statement jacket like this.
