For me, this season has been the season of the shearling jacket. Ever since the Acne Velocite jacket obsession started last fall, I’ve been head over heels for them and constantly searching for the perfect shearling jacket on the high street. You might have already read my blog post on the black Zara version (here), but now I’ve also found the perfect tan version too thanks to Bows Boutiques! Between both of them, my Winter wardrobe is sorted!
I love a good statement jacket. If you look in my wardrobe, it’s honestly probably over 50% jackets rather than tops or anything else. A little bit ridiculous (and hella impractical) I know, but I just can’t resist them! I figure it’s okay at this time of year though because, really, whatever I wear underneath is going to be covered up by the jacket I put on top anyways….right?! Help me justify this please…! Anyway, onto this jacket and outfit – I was asked to style up some pieces for Bows Boutiques from their latest collection. They’re an online store that I hadn’t heard of before but I was pleasantly surprised to see so many great pieces. This jacket was an amazing find, often a lot of websites seem to stock the same products but I hadn’t seen this one before! It’s really good quality, good thickness and texture (there’s nothing worse than a thin jacket that won’t keep you warm!) and I love the buckle detailing (a great dupe for the Acne version). I often find that with these kind of jackets on the high street, it’s the faux shearling material that lets them down, but this one is great! I styled it really simply here, partly because I’ve reverted back to my lazy all-black winter uniform and partly because I wanted to let the jacket do all the talking. I layered it over a side-tied knit, also from Bows Boutique (a better post on that will be coming soon!) and some trusty black skinnies and boots. Simple, but hopefully it works!
