4 office-appropriate, long jackets that make you look slimmer

Here are two ways to wear a long-line jacket, and four such jackets to buy now.
 

HOW TO WEAR: KEEP IT SHARP
If the cut of the jacket is boxy, pair it with a pair of slim, cropped pants to sharpen the look. Choose a jacket with interesting details, like brocade or embroidery, to spice things up.

Try this look (above):
Brocade jacket, $256, cotton knit three-quarter sleeve top, $76.90, and checked pants, $103, from Warehouse
Leather shoes, $76, from Pedro
Metal choker, $11, from Forever 21
Assorted beaded bracelets, $35, from Aldo
Stackable rings, $255 (set of three), from Swarovski

 

HOW TO WEAR: BALANCE PROPORTIONS
A lengthy jacket could overwhelm layers to make it work better. Or pair it with wide-legged trousers to balance proportions. If you're petite, heels are a must.

Try this look (above):
Polyester duster jacket, $213, and cotton knit pullover, $76.90, both from Warehouse
Polyester wide-legged pants, $69.90 from Topshop
Leather and neoprene pumps, $79, from Pedro
