Things I am now obsessed with: outrageously tactile textures, side splits in everything, flowy sleeves and statement jackets.
To be fair, my love for a good statement jacket isn't anything new. I really rely on a jacket to pull my whole look together some days. If you've got a fabulous coat then it doesn't matter if everything underneath it is all black/a bit past it, you'll still be turning heads.
The fluffy colourful one at the end of this edit is my obvious fave, but I'll gladly come up with reasons to justify buying all of them.
1. Kimono Jacket by Zara - £59.99
Bamboozle friends with your wily new shapes. Who says a jacket needs to feature boring ol' zips and buttons?
2. Jumper by UNIF - £83
Not the cheapest, but quite possibly the softest.
3. Tee by H&M - £12.99
Want the Markus Lupfer sequin tee effect without breaking the bank? H&M has a whole range of sequinned tees in at the mo and they're all £12.99.
4. Skirt by Oasis - £45
Again, I'm just loving these slightly more interesting shapes at the moment. The wrap effect of this one makes it stand out and it looks ace with a simple white blouse or a polo neck - choose one in any of the colours featured in the skirt for a superbly co-ordinated outfit.
5. Jacket by Warehouse - £79
You know when you're wearing your coat on the tube and you're really hot and you think "OH GOD I WISH THIS DIDN'T HAVE SLEEVES"? Well...look no further.
6. Stole by Topshop - £15 (was £32)
Brightens up any outfit and is a talking point as people will want to stroke it.
7. Catsuit by H&M - £14.99
Judging by the time of year I think this *may* be a Halloween outfit but I would like to suggest you wear this anywhere, any time. IT'S FRIKKIN FABULOUS.
8. Blouse by Pins & Needles - £18 (was £42)
A great sale price but also ticking a lot of trend boxes. It's a bit of a shame it's so sheer (consider what you'll wear underneath!) but I love this blouse.
9. Jacket by Zara - £39.99
Cheap. And warm. And gorgeous. And in the basket.
10. Jacket by Jakke - £99
Ridiculous but brilliant. I want this so very much.
