Swing jackets have fitted shoulders, varying sleeve lengths and the fabric widens at the hemline. When left unbelted, a swing coat or jacket will move when you do because of the extra fabric at the bottom. Another way to wear this classic jacket is to belt it. Belting the jacket restricts its movement and flatters your waistline. Pull an outfit together by adding a belt that matches your shoes, boots or other accessories. Belt trends may vary from wide patterned belts to thin textured ones.
Put on the jacket then button it up.
Wrap the belt around the waist or at the smallest portion of your upper body. This area is usually found slightly above the belly button.
Tighten the belt to a comfortable but snug position.
Arrange the folds of the swing jacket. Some bunching may occur because of the fabric.
