In this article you will find photos of various models of jackets. We will talk about what are the jackets, what to wear them with and how to successfully choose a jacket for your height and figure.
Jacket models throughout their history have constantly changed. The first analogues of the modern men’s and women’s jacket appeared in the late Gothic era, but it took several more centuries for this element of clothing to be finally formed into a modern version. The jacket became a classic element of the men’s suit at the end of the XIX century. In women’s fashion, jackets finally became established after the famous Yves Saint Laurent collection in 1962, although this trend began thanks to Coco Chanel.
Single Breasted and Double Breasted Jacket
Men’s and women’s jackets are divided into single-breasted and double-breasted, depending on the number of vertical rows of buttons. In a single-breasted jacket, there is only one vertical row of buttons, while in a double-breasted jacket there are two. Single-breasted jacket is a more common option for street fashion looks. It is less formal and opens up more possibilities for combinations.
Often, modern fashionable jackets are made from knitwear, leather, jeans or corduroy, and since they are as far from the formal style as possible, they have one row of buttons.
In the photo below we see a burgundy-colored men’s jacket with burgundy men’s trousers. Despite the formal style of the suit, the man managed to create a rather complex multi-layered outfit, which in a strange way combines classic and casual style, combined with a burgundy single-breasted jacket. The jacket is matched with a black T-shirt, a gray unbuttoned shirt, and a blue and burgundy men’s lace-up top. Top Siders can be worn differently, but in this bow a man chose to wear them on his bare feet.
Look, this gray knitted men’s jacket perfectly blends in with a casual image, combined with a simple plaid shirt and a comfortable sand-colored backpack.

This comfortable street look looks very advantageous: a dark blue double-breasted men’s jacket worn over a blue shirt and a sweater to match her tone, as well as classic black men’s shoes – all this is associated with aristocratic closed schools. But a contrasting red backpack and plain jeans make the outfit applicable to the outdoors.
