Jackets: The Ultimate Transitional Piece

Outwear is key in completing a stylish look, investing jackets and coats opposed to constantly buying basic clothing and just having the odd couple of pieces of outwear will always help you to translate a better wardrobe.

Unlike separates, coats and jackets are that investment piece in which you can actually get a great cost per wear out of as it’s a piece you can team with multiple looks. Jackets in particular are the trusted transitional piece you can really rely on for dressing in-between seasons. 

The key piece to any look is usually outwear, shoes and bags can be introduced to enhance the aesthetic. The great attribute of a classic jacket is that you are not just limited to wearing the piece with casual looks, you can have the option to dress them up with heels and statement jewellery for fashion forward look.

Jackets unlike coats are not as nearly expensive and this season the high street has presented a fine array of uber cool styles. Christmas is just around the corner, so this month seems to be a good time of month to make those investment buys and go full throttle on the splurge because it won’t be long until the pennies need to be saved for all the Christmas shopping, and let’s not forget the Boxing day sales.
