Each season, a new Zara trend spread accross our wardrobes. I love this shop and how the clothes there are cool and trendy yet affordable, but I usually try to stay away from the very popular pieces. You know what I mean : when you live in a « big » city where you can see the same item worn by ten different persons in just one day, it can be quite boring in the end. Nonetheless, I was quite determined to find a very warm jacket for this season, and highstreet brands were numerous to offer good copies of the famous Velocite jacket by Acne. In September, I had a crush on a H&M one, but I wasn’t really sure yet. I waited until November when I saw that Zara had also released their version of the Velocite, really similar to the original one but difinitely budget friendly in comparison. But right next to it, another jacket caught my eyes : a padded jacket with a very high collar and an aviator vibe that was quite different. Thankfully, Stéphan helped me choose for this purchase and he was right.
2. The beige interior is different than the all black winter jacket yet remains neutral – and it’s as simple as that ! Something else I had in mind when purchasing my jacket was the fact that I weat more lighted color clothes than black ones : if the interior texture of the jacket were to leave fluffy hairs on my clothes, it would be less visible if it were a light color. When I tried the black one I was weating a light blue shirt and as soon as I took the jacket off I saw black fluffly hair all over me ! Thanks but no.
The second main piece of that outfit is of course my jumper dress : temperatures have now drop enough that I cannot live without it anymore. It is from H&M and is so warm that I don’t have to put 40 layers of clothes when stepping out of my house (thank you H&M for those 5% of wool that make all the difference !). To be honest, this one is not really a jumper dress but just a jumper, anyway if you are a bit petite like I am, it will be fine. I am putting some plain black shorts underneath to be at ease and that’s it. To add a bit more details to it I chose to layer a white shirt and to let the collar and sleeves visible so that the whole outfit is instantly more put together. This piece is so versatile that I’m almost sure you’ll see it again on the blog by the end of the season.
Finally, my baker boy hat, which as you know, is one of my favorite piece since autumn, and my trusty over-the-knee boots which are just perfect to pair with short skirts or dresses. And I’m not gonna say anything more on this bag because you’re used to it now : when I love something I’ll wear and re-wear and re-wear it endlessly. Life’s too short not to wear items we love !
I’m very curious about your favorite jacket of the season : did you also decided between a biker one or an aviator one ? Maybe you even got both ahah ? Or maybe neither ! Tell me in the comments !
