Those that have been following me from the start know how addicted I am to coats & jackets. If I fall in love with a jacket, I HAVE TO BUY IT no matter what! I really can’t leave the store without getting it lol. I just love how a cute jacket can turn a boring outfit into an outstanding one. Since so many of you have asked me where I get my jackets from I thought it’s a good idea to make a blogpost about my absolute favorite ones for this years A/W season…
1. THE SHEARLING COAT
If you follow me and follow my style then you know the shearling coat is this seasons must-have! My favorite thing about this coat is that it looks just as cozy as it feels. Also, you can have on the most simple outfit but trust me, i can guarantee you all anyone will be focusing on is your coat. You can combine it with some skinny or boyfriend jeans, a simple top and some sneakers for a casual look or some heels for a night out!
2. THE DENIM COAT
Even though it’s way too cold outside to wear a denim jacket, it’s still a nice piece to have for early Autumn days. I wouldn’t recommend a normal denim jacket during this time period but I love the fact that the two I selected are longer than your average. What I like most about them are the distressed details. Pair it with an oversized tee and some thigh high boots for a chic look or some ripped jeans and sneakers if you like it more laid back!
3. THE PUFFY JACKET
Puffy coats were a thing of the 90’s but I think it’s safe to say they’re back in fashion! I feel like we’re reliving the Spice Girls era when girls wanna dress with more attitude. I chose the Tommy Hilfiger one because it reminded me of my childhood. I obviously couldn’t afford it then but when I walked into Urban Outfitters the other day, it had to be mine! The jacket is quite loud so I like to keep the colours simple. I wore this with some blue jeans, white top and red suede Puma trainers. The khaki puffy coat on the other hand is more simple but a stylish winter coat that allows you to wear less layers because you don’t have to worry about getting cold.
4. THE FAUX FUR COAT
Every girl should own a (faux) fur coat! It’s just a perfect statement piece for the colder days. They’re not only affordable but good value for money as they keep you really warm. I’ve worn the beige colour more casually during the day, majority of the time with jeans and sneakers where as, the dark green colour is better for evening wear. I say this because the style of this particular coat looks better with heels.
5. THE LEATHER JACKET
Leather jackets will never go out of fashion! We definitely have evolved from your standard black leather jacket to different colourways and styles. With a leather jacket nowadays there’s something for everyone. For a younger look you can go for eye-catching colours and details or for a more elegant look, a simple less complicated style is recommended. I selected these two because I wanted something vibrant this year. I’ve already expressed my passion for shearling coats so when I saw this biker with the fur collar I fell in love instantly. The cozy look is just this season’s thing! My second choice is the pink leather jacket because the details are minimal but the colour is lovely. As you know I keep my outfits very simple so I like to have an item, preferably a jacket, that stands out. Biker jackets really look good with anything. Jeans, skirts, dresses, heels or sneakers – it’s really up to you!
6. THE OVERSIZED COAT
Who doesn’t need an oversized coat in this cold weather? Answer is: we all do! I know we’ve seen the camel coat on every blog and social media platform but truth is, without one your wardrobe is struggling! I love this camel coat because it’s very long in length and the shade is slightly darker than your usual one. Good thing is with a camel coat you can wear it with near enough anything and unlike other jackets, it’s suitable for school, uni, work and nights out. This faux sheepskin coat on the other hand is something you rarely see. More often you tend to see the shorter version, so when I came across this one I had to look twice! I describe this coat as coziness at it’s highest level. It’s so huge that you can barely see what you have underneath which makes it easy to combine. If you still have problems finding something to wear it with then I suggest some simple jeans, boots or sneakers. Make sure your top is light otherwise you’ll sweat buckets!
