Chata answers your fashion question
Q: I love jackets but I’m tired of the traditional jacket. What is a fashionable option that still looks smart? Paula – Australia
A: Workdays often call for a sophisticated cover up. Enter the trench jacket, one of the biggest fashion statements of the season. A classic shape, the trench jacket works for everyone. Belt it for a dressed-up look or leave it loose and open for casual chic. The difference this summer is in the fabrication and colour; we’re seeing trench jackets in sheer silk, shiny satin and polished cotton. Style Tip: Avoid a belted jacket if you have a fuller body shape; wear this gorgeous style without a belt!
