Fashion has a significant influence over fashion and how people think about it. Many people buy clothes just because they’re trendy, even if they don’t like them. Each trend comes with different clothes. One trend can make polo shirts popular. Another might favour crop tops. People end up buying clothes they don’t like or get bored of quickly, but they want them because they’re part of the trend.

Such is the case with jackets, too. But if you’re in a situation where you bought a jacket just for the trend but don’t like it, you shouldn’t worry. At first glance, it may look like a waste of money, but there are several ways to turn a basic jacket into a stylish one. For example, embroidered jackets are cool and stylish. To customise a basic jacket is not a complex process and isn’t expensive.

Add Prints

Adding a print on any old or basic jacket is a big plus. It transforms a boring piece of clothing into something you’ll gladly wear daily. You can print almost anything you want on a jacket, and your imagination is the only limit. You can print a photo you’ve taken or something from a TV show you like and so on.

Text is also a popular design printed on jackets. A short quote that helped you in life will bring you a smile whenever you see it on the jacket. Customised jackets are cool and stylish because they break the norm. They are part of their owners, an extension of their individuality.

Embroidered Jackets

Another cheap way to make a jacket more stylish is to add embroideries. Unlike printed jackets, embroideries are more durable and give the impression of quality and intensive hard work. You can make embroideries if you have the skills, but printing websites and shops also specialise in this process.

With such jackets, your style will look handmade, not mass produced. It will catch the eye of passersby and make you feel appreciated, especially if you make the embroidery yourself. As with prints, you can make your jacket however you like.

Embroideries make your jackets not only cool but more business or casual-like. You will be able to wear them in formal settings where the dress code is not very strict. With a basic jacket, it may be considered a casual outfit and not proper for business casual events.

Painted Jackets

Jackets offer another possibility of customisation. No matter the material, you can paint them with special acrylic paint. Painted jackets result from your skills and work, and they will always be cool. People appreciate hard work and may even come to you for advice on how to get a fantastic jacket of their own. It makes them think you’re a stylish person who knows a thing or two about fashion.

You can add paintings to improve or extend the design already on basic jackets. If an old jacket is out of trend because of its design, you can customise it to be cool and trending again.
