Bella Hadid loves outerwear. When she’s not rocking super revealing dresses on the red carpet, she can be found getting off-duty dressing right in a collection of jackets—‘90s-appropriate track and denim styles being her favorites. One other thing about the model? She KNOWS how to make an item that essentially covers up your body look downright sexy. Here are tips we’re picking up from her:
1. Use it to frame your décolletage.
Create a killer v-neck look that draws the eyes upwards and gives off a sexy AF bombshell vibe. Simply wear it wrap-style around your shoulders, then add statement necklaces to keep the focus right there.
2. Balance it out with a barely there top.
As is the case with other pieces that tend to cover your shape, keeping proportions in check is super important. We love the idea of a roomy denim jacket styled with a midriff-baring crop top—but slinky camisoles and plunging bodysuits totally work, too.
3. Zip it just so.
Zipping up may make sense when you’re in frigid temps, but if you’re just nagpapa-cute (like we all are in this tropical country), leave your jacket open around your midsection. Otherwise, refer to the first picture.
4. Wear it falling off your shoulders.
Now this is the way to style your jacket in 2016. Expose your shoulders and arms by just half-wearing it—Gigi Hadid and Nadine Lustre are also advocates of this look, so get on it!
5. Give luxurious textures a go.
Rugged denim and sporty nylon aren’t your only options, of course. Transition to night with jackets in spruced-up fabrics like jacquard, leather, neoprene, and even lace.
