The cold weather has caught me and my wardrobe off guard this year, but honestly I feel this way every year. Despite owning far too many jackets (mostly in the denim form) my wardrobe has been severely lacking any coat of substance that is actually going to shield me in any way from this Glasgow winter. Here are some of my favourite picks online this season that are a little different with the added benefit of an affordable price tag!
THE LEATHER JACKET
I feel like (faux) leather jackets are pretty much a staple in most people’s wardrobes, never truly going out of fashion but becoming a little monotonous from time to time. I am absolutely loving these longer fit, boldly coloured leather jackets popping up in a lot of high street stores- a great way to add a bit of colour and edge to another day of mom jeans and sweaters.
WEAR IT WITH
THE VINYL JACKET
Perhaps my favourite current trend! Vinyl everything: boots, jackets, skirts, bags, trousers… you name it, I want it. Any basic winter jacket is instantly cooler in vinyl and I’m loving puffer jacket and trench coat versions in particular.
WEAR IT WITH
THE TRENCH COAT
Continuing on with the vinyl trend, this vinyl burgundy trench coat is what my Burberry dreams are made of. I haven’t included a “wear it with” for this coat as it is incredibly versatile and could be styled up as a statement coat on a night out or styled down as a smart addition to a casual winter wardrobe.
THE SHEARLING JACKET
The first thing that made this Topshop shearling jacket catch my attention was the price: £55 is ridiculously good for a winter jacket, right? My wardrobe always gets a little duller in Winter, running back to the safety net of blacks and greys, so camel is always a welcome colour to brighten up outfits whilst still maintaining my “bleak mid-winter” aesthetic that rolls around every December. Also, it looks incredibly cosy!
THE FUR JACKET
No justification needed, whatsoever, for buying a fur jacket in winter but I’m borderline obsessed with this one in pistachio green. This would look amazing paired with skinny jeans and a basic roll neck jumper but there’s no denying that every girl needs a fur coat for that cold walk home from the bar. I’ve paired it with a statement silver outfit which is perfect for this festive party season; it tones down the silver without reverting back to black.
