Styling Inspiration // Kelly Anorak Sewalong

Styling Inspiration for Kelly Anorak // Closet Core Patterns

The Kelly Anorak was so much fun to design since a good jacket is the sum of its details (something I talked about in greater depth on Instagram last week here and here). Like usual, this pattern had an extensive secret Pinterest board, but the real genesis for me came from really paying attention to what stylish women were wearing on the street, and trying to find that balance between chic and utilitarian, practical and covetable.

I like the casual easiness of an anorak with sneakers, or pairing it with skinny jeans and ankle boots for something a little more polished. The choice of fabric has an impact as well. Soft twills look lovely and broken in (especially with wear), while a performance fabric like Goretex or nylon ups the sporty factor. We'll be talking about appropriate fabrics later in our sewalong, but in the meantime I hope these provide some styling inspiration for your own Kelly.
