Is it Spring yet? Can it be Spring, like now? I’m all set for a new season and statement jackets are where I am starting my new season wardrobe. I’ve completed the initial wardrobe clear out to decide what I need and one common theme each year is how I invest in jackets and shoes. If you are a fan of jeans and a jumper, like I am, the easiest way to change up this look is to swap your jackets.
I’m all about statement jackets right now, and it’s a great time to start your collection as we are just at the beginning of new stock on the shop floors. Animal print might seem a little Autumn Winter to you but I actually think it’s a universal print that is quite timeless. As the weather gets warmer, you can swap the jumper for a t-shirt and style in some trainers or slip on mules instead of the cosy winter ankle boot.
The main thing to bear in mind is to not be scared of anything that is colourful or printed for the new season. It will dramatically change any every day outfit. Even if it’s over a suit on the way to work. Go up a size so you can layer in a blazer and add a little oomph to your work wear wardrobe.
Now, if you like this kind of jacket, but you’re not sure, I’ve started to film my outfit posts in video form too, so you can see how the outfit moves in real life. It’s one thing to see it in a picture or on a hangar but once you start to walk in it you get a better view on if it’s for you. My current video is on my Instagram feed, and on my Facebook page so you can click these links to check it out!
My outfit is currently available from Primark and in stores now!
