I pretty much spent the whole of last Autumn & Winter lusting after the Acne Velocite jacket. There were a few high street dupes around (I had the boohoo version, obv) but not very many, and definitely not any that lived up to the beauty of the original. As much as I wish I could drop that kind of dollar on a jacket that I didn’t know would stay in style, sadly I’m not at that kind of place in my life yet (maybe one day!) so I had to resign myself to missing out on the jacket of my dreams….This year though all that has changed thanks to my high street hero store, Zara! I nabbed this Acne jacket dupe as soon as I saw it in stores (and yes, that meant buying it on the hottest day of the year!) and I’m pretty sure it’s true love. I was actually excited for the weather to get colder so I could start wearing this beauty! Now that it’s chilly outside, I’m basically wearing it every day…and I love it too much to care!
Everything about this jacket is just awesome; the material, the quality, the oversized style, the super-warm fur lining! Basically I just love it, and I love how it can be thrown over anything and look great. I decided to go all out with the leather for this look and paired it with my beloved H&M leather trousers, these super-shiny patent boots from Quiz and my new handbag obsession from Just Fab. Sometimes you just can’t beat an all black outfit, right?! By winter, my wardrobe is 90% black at the best of times, so I’ll definitely be living in these kind of outfits this season so I can keep wearing this jacket as much as possible!
