Practical but polished

A quilted jacket adds a bit of texture to your outfit, without bulking you out as much as a puffa. Keep the jumper closely fitted to avoid fabric bulges.

Add a highlight

To contrast with your all-black outfit, throw in a white shirt for a much-needed highlight. It's also a lot more flattering to have a flash of white by your face.
