There are so many reasons to invest in jackets for your wardrobe. Jackets like these are so good because they can be thrown over something light, something slightly warmer or worn under larger and thicker coats. The jacket is a fast way to update your outfit or create interesting layers. I personally love wearing a leather or smaller blazer under a coat when it’s bitterly cold and in doing so it opens up the option of taking your coat off and feeling more comfortable with just a jacket on whilst keeping the chill at bay.
The leopard print faux fur does not exactly fall into the smaller jacket category but I thought I’d add it to this line up as it sure is versatile, brightens up any dull wardrobe and will be around for many years jazzing up your outfits.
Wherever you are in the world, I think February is a bit of an odd month! Shopping wise your’e neither here nor there.
If you are in the Northern Hemisphere, you’re desperately praying for signs of Spring and warmer days. You can’t bare the thought of purchasing another jumper as you feel that summer is around the corner (although it’s not!) but you find yourself holding out for the Spring essentials which will start popping up around the stores as early as Feb/March.
In the Southern Hemisphere, you’ve done your summer shopping, you’ve had your beach holiday (December/January). Easter is coming up but that can be so touch and go weather wise so you never know what your’e going to get!
This is a great time to revisit your wardrobe and go through what you have used this season and what you have not touched, if there has been something that you have not wanted to wear, be ruthless and chuck it out while it’s all fresh in your mind . Once you have done a major (or minor) cull you know you can pack your wardrobe away, knowing that when this season comes around again you’ve sorted it already whilst it was fresh in your mind. At this late stage in the season whatever you buy should be transferable to the next season. Examples below are two items I would pick being in a summer country.
This raffia clutch is great for a summer lunch with denim shorts and a kimono and would work brilliantly with a pair of black jeans and shirt in the winter.
