Consejos de estilo para la chaqueta Penny

This short oversized jacket with wide sleeves that only just reach the wrist can be tailored to the season. Use a warm fabric or lined, faux fur to make a winter version. For a version that’s a little more summery, use a thinner fabric without lining for this model. Below you can find more style advice for each of the body types.

Full hourglasses / 8-types

The straight shape of the Penny jacket doesn’t make it a great match for these shapes. Still, it is possible to wear the jacket nicely. Make sure that the jacket sits above the widest zone of your body. An example of this would be just over the hips. A shorter sleeve length (3/4) will subtly draw focus to the waist. You can see here, how to shorten your sleeves. Opt for a light, supple fabric. This softens the look and combines perfectly with a slender belt to create a waist.

The wide rectangles/ H-types

Create the illusion of a waist by using color contrasts throughout. For the jacket, for example, opt for a hunter green and combine this with a soft beige top. The lighter color pulls the focus toward the center of the body. 

The inverted triangles/ V-types

Wide sleeves that hang at hip level can provide some counterweight to your narrower hips. Definitely make sure the sleeves are long enough! You can see here, how to lengthen your sleeves. If you want to keep the focus off your upper body, lengthen the jacket where necessary a little past the hipbones. Fabrics with little or no texture are recommended. If you want to detract attention from your upper body, opt for dark and calm colors. You can combine it with light-colored bootcut pants to make a balanced silhouette.

The apples / O-types

This one is fantastic for apples. Without a collar or eye-catching fastenings, this jacket creates vertical lines that create a slimming effect in the stomach area. Opt for a delicate print and combine it with a plain top, or vice versa. Don’t make the jacket too short. Hip length is just perfect for avoiding extra volume around the stomach. Here you can see, how to lengthen the pattern. The jacket needs to be at least hip length, so definitely not too short. The idea is to avoid extra volume around the stomach. As an apple, you're best off going for narrower sleeves and a lightweight, supple fabric. Avoid too much texture and stiff fabrics.

The pears / A-types

If so, make sure that the jacket sits above the widest zone of your body. An example of this would be just over the hips. Draw attention to your upper body by selecting a textured fabric, one with a print, or a light or striking color. Tip: combine the jacket with a pair of wide-leg pants or an A-line skirt. For the lower body go for a darker or plainer color.

The slim rectangles / I-types

Anything that creates volume to your figure is welcome. Obviously that means the wide sleeves are a hit. Go for a textured or printed fabric. And combine the jacket with wide-leg pants or a skirt. By doing that you create a well balanced silhouette.
