Fall Wardrobe Checklist: The Double Breasted Jacket

We promise we haven’t been spending all of our time in the menswear department, but borrowed-from-the-boys fashion has been on our minds a lot lately. Hence, today’s trend topic: double-breasted jackets. As seen on Diane Kruger, Jessica Biel, and Miranda Kerr, one thing is clear: the boardroom staple was tailored for the ladies this season.

    At the premiere of Runner Runner in Las Vegas two months ago, the actress surprised everyone—in a good way!—when she skipped the dress and went for a Dolce & Gabbana double-breasted tuxedo, instead.

    Miranda Kerr

    The look can easily go feminine, as Kerr proved during Paris Fashion Week in a Stella McCartney snake-print coat from the Resort 14 collection, Frame Denim Le Luxe Noir Jeans ($209), and Miu Miu’s Bow-Embellished Patent-Leather Loafers ($595).

    Anna Dello Russo

    During Paris Fashion Week, Dello Russo played up the trend’s dapper origins in head-to-toe Celine. We love that the look has a bit of a barbershop quartet vibe.

    For fall, Hilfiger imbued the trend with a collegiate vibe, putting Prince of Wales checks on everything from a Hat ($129, 212.223.1824) to a Double-Breasted Blazer ($599, 212.223.1824), Ivory Silk Blouse ($299, 212.223.1824), and Mini Skirt ($229, 212.223.1824).

    Thanks to a sharply tailored fit and no lapel, Rykiel’s Intarsia Milano Knit Jacket ($1810, 617.426.2033) reads entirely feminine.
