What Are The Types of Bolero Jackets?

Bolero jackets are usually worn with different types of dresses. They can be short bolero jackets, long bolero jackets, bolero jackets with sleeves and some even have a slit. But what you need to decide first is your body type.

Wear a fitted dress with a short bolero jacket on top of it if you have a small waistline or wear them if you wear tight clothes because it will make your waist look smaller. It depends on your preference.

Long Sleeve Bolero Jacket

A long sleeve bolero jacket is good if you want to cover your arms because they are long and it will also make your body look longer. It’s a great option for tall people because the length of their body is already considered too lengthy for them not to add anything else.

A long sleeve bolero jacket can also be worn with a dress that has a tight bottom part or if you want to accentuate the length of your legs.

Neckline Bolero Jacket

Neckline bolero jackets are usually worn on different types of collars but can also be worn on dresses with sheer fabric because it will help cover some parts of your body like very short dresses.

Neckline bolero jackets can be a sexy option, especially on V-necklines. It doesn’t make you look larger as if it gives perfect size because the opening is very narrow. It’s a good choice for those who want to cover parts of their body that they don’t like or even show off some parts they love.

Waistline Bolero Jacket

If you want to cover up your back, the waistline bolero jacket is ideal for you. It will definitely draw attention to your waistline even if it’s not that thin or small. They are especially great for formal events that have semi-formal or casual themes.

Note: Neckline bolero jackets and waistline bolero jackets are usually made of the same materials like satin, lace, and silk. They can also be combined with different fabrics like fake fur or even the finest leather-like Lambskin leather. Lambskin leather is smoother and softer than many other types of leather that’s why neckline bolero jackets can be a good combination.
