Suddenly a jacket is required… a sweatshirt or single layered top is no longer enough for nipping out and about.
I have a slew of jackets in my wardrobe that have been gathered over the years. Some slip in to take over the job of a previous loved jacket that has become too tired, some jackets come in to add a little, I was going to say pzazz but, in my wardrobe where the jackets are more likely to be black or khaki, pzazz might be a sparkle too far…
So, amongst my predominantly, but not all, black jackets I am needing something else, that isn’t indigo (denim), or khaki. Of course black would go with all of my other black…
So whether you might need an update of an easy go-to jacket (or a more subdued pzazzy number), these could be of interest, to add that now, much needed extra layer.
A military jacket never goes out of style.
Mango Military Jacket £69
Another blazer that I love… this blazer keeps calling out to me when I’ve been looking at the New-In section; I love this styled with the slogan tee under neath. (This would be a loud colour for me… but I do think it’s a pretty easy shade really to incorporate – it’s also very good if camel tones wash you out, as they do me. Imagine this colour with a white or cream top… black trousers, or winter white jeans – leopard print something? Boom. Hello.)
M&S Double Breasted Blazer £79
A corduroy jacket feels perfect for autumn… this ecru one would fabulous for now, and for spring, and layered under a coat in the winter… and so cost per wear…
Hush Cord Jacket £89
I am a big fan of the denim jacket but sometimes variations on the classic are needed. This belted jacket would work year round… (this with a black polo neck underneath come winter?) – it’s sort of formal but in a dressed down way.
& Other Stories Belted Workwear Denim Jacket £79
Khaki Jacket. Say no more. Always always look for the Gap discount codes – they have some bonkers ones. This jacket is a great length and I love the shoulder sleeve detail.
Gap Slub Utility Jacket £64.95
It’s not really big coat weather yet… but on a really chilly morning… this looks so cosy.
H&M Pile Jacket with High Collar £49.99
Finally… this rust shade again… I’m definitely seeing the appeal of it; this colour would look great with other brown tones, navy and black (naturally), and this coatigan – throw on, bum covering and easy. Job done.
Next Lined Coatigan £48
