The Anorak Jacket Gets Stylish for Spring (PHOTOS)

By: Tiffany Merritt,

They say what goes around comes around. Well, this season the anorak jacket is definitely making that statement true. Just like the classic trench coat, anorak jackets have been in style forever and simply regain popularity in cycles. Truth be told, my mother even has a cool one hanging in her closet. So how are they different this time around?

A versatile piece that is reminiscent of the '80s, the anorak for 2012 gets a facelift in colour, fabric, and detailing. This multi-talented little number can also take you anywhere day or night, in flats or stilettos.

And last, but definitely not least, the anorak’s nipped-in waist and mid-thigh length flatters any female figure. So ladies, I think we all can welcome this comeback with open arms.
