I have a thing for Jackets and Coats (just take a peek to my past posts), perhaps its because in the UK we spend most of our time hiding under them! I need a printed jackets in my life and my Spring wardrobe. There is no two ways about it! Patience however is not my virtue! Why I sold my pansy print Topshop one I will never know, a total fail on my behalf.
The husband vaguely liked the Zara one that has stole mine and others heart, but I am sure like most men a few others that I have eyed up will get the "Curtain" comment. But what's not to love about the colourful prints that will jazz up any outfit. Even trainers would look ace with this look!
After discussing with my sister we came to the conclusion that I would want a bluey version so I could match it in with more and she's right. A blue jacket matches jeans straight off and if you go for one with a colourful print you can wear a t-shirt of pretty much any colour. Sorted.
Just one thing though, I don't have a designers budget. This half term has wiped me out on savings and our Cornwall holiday approaching next month means I can't really warrant a new jacket. So until then my biker jackets paired with scarves will make do (Sob). I am sure Primark will soon be hot on the quilted collar of the trend very soon but until then I will have my beady eye on what high street, eBay and maybe even what the charity shop has to offer. Convincing myself to be good and avoiding Zara's at all costs.
This Topshop £65 jacket is a beauty, I totally love the geo print which is different to some of the paisley prints you find all over the high street right now. Topshop has a pulling power of me, must resist, must resist...
This Zara £59 jacket is a also different print so if flowers are not your thing fear not...
If flowers are more your thing, then this Free People Jacket Reduced from £102 to £53 is a lovely girly option.
As is this Red Herring £49 which is also available in Red!
If the smaller cropped jacket isn't quite your thing and its too short then have a lookout for a longer printed jacket. With the weather not looking likely to heat up anytime soon they are probably a safer bet just now anyway and will be least likely to go unworn for a while.
Whilst I am distracted by the fact that this model seems to have two stilts as legs and no thighs to mention I like the jacket!
This Zara one below would be great for someone who like's the printed jackets but doesn't want anything too "in your face"!
