Hello everyone! It’s finally starting to feel like Christmas in London, complete with the cold weather to match! This means it is the perfect time to invest in some winter layers to keep you warm and on trend. Kindly my mum has posed as my model and we have selected five of our favourite winter jackets of the season. They are a mix of high end and high street and I have also attached direct links to similar items which you can buy online. Let me know what you think!
1: The Fur Gilet
In my opinion the fur gilet is one of the best investments this season. It is the perfect item as you can layer it with various tops underneath. It looks great over a party dress or simply with a high neck sweater underneath. I love the bright pink of this one, which I will be taking orders for. I think with a fur gilet the brighter the better. If you love to wear black like I do, it can add a fun pop of colour to what otherwise would be a quite plain look. These are some of my favourite high street faux alternatives:
2: The Coatigan
Perfect for days where it’s not too cold or you will be spending most of your time inside…the coat/cardigan hybrid. The one shown is by Isabel Marant and is mink on the front and wool on the back. Although it looks quite thin it is super warm and ideal for even the coldest of days. There are so many amazing high street versions of this look, some of my favourites being from Zara..
3: The Biker Jacket
The leather biker jacket is an item which never seems to go out of fashion. It is another essential piece which you can layer up to suit your individual style. I love it with a hooded jumper underneath and a colourful scarf however there are endless ways which you can wear it to suit your individual style. My top tip is to spend a little more money on a good quality leather jacket (real or faux) instead of replacing it season after season. I love allsaints for their leather jackets as they get better and softer over time.
4: The Bomber Jacket
The Bomber Jacket is definitely an on trend item of the season. It has been all over the catwalks and has quickly spread all over the high street. I love the Japanese themed style and the satin effect of the Topshop jacket shown above. Even better..it is double sided, so it is two jackets in one! It can be paired with simple leggings or jeans for a sporty chic look or over a little black dress for a cool twist in the evenings. Here are some links to some of my favourites:
5: The Military Jacket
I love the shoulders on this Zara jacket and the real military look of it. It is great over jeans and a simple jumper to really smarten up your look. It is a really versatile item and you can dress it up or down dependant on what you are getting up to. There are so many high street versions of this coat, so be sure to have a look around before making your choice. Luckily, I have looked around for you and here is what I consider to be some of the best…
