Five Jackets You Need In Your Wardrobe This Winter
We all love a good coat or jacket in the chillier months – insulating, versatile, and the piece we can throw over as the focal point of our outfits. We believe winter outerwear should keep us warm while looking cool, because after all, if we’re going to be wearing something so often, it’s important that it’s as stylish as it is functional! We’ve put together our five must-haves that will carry you through the slumps of the season and beyond.
Whether it’s a blazer or a bomber, wearing velvet instantly creates a 70’s vibe with a touch of sophistication. We’re loving the jewel-tones out at the moment – such an effortless way to add opulence to the wet misery of winter, as well as being an easy transition into colour for those that live in black. A well-cut blazer will take you from the office to after-work drinks with ease while a bomber is perfect for everyday wear.
It’s no secret that buying a leather jacket is an investment, but they are timeless and will see you through countless winters. These don’t have to channel bad kids in a high school movie. Grab your headiest dress or skirt, paired with a scarf, tights and boots, for an edgy-yet-feminine look. The durable fabric will add definition and structure to knits and other soft winter favourites.
If you’re like us and you feel the cold, a puffer jacket or vest in your wardrobe is a must. Runway trends have placed the puffer in the fashion major-leagues, so there are heaps of offerings at the moment – including new colours and never-seen-before styling experimentations. A firm favourite of ours for this season is the longline puffer. That extra bit of length makes an essential difference when it comes to staying toasty.
One word: versatile. The check blazer really does cater to everyone’s needs. Sharpen up your denim and sneaker combo by simply adding the check blazer or enhance your 9 to 5 office outfits with a beautiful tailored edition. Grab a coffee on your Sunday mornings with an oversized version thrown over your shoulders sans-sleeves for an indispensably chic vibe.
Bored of your black anorak? If you’re looking for a way to make a statement, this is it. A faux fur coat in the winter is like walking around in a blanket, which is obviously a crucial aspect of the coat’s appeal – aside from the element of luxury it invokes. Best of all, it’s deliciously lazy – you don’t need as many layers underneath for effect.
