The Autumnal Jacket You Need In Your Wardrobe

I'm aware that I said it was officially Autumn in my latest Mac review but scratch that, today it's officially Autumn as I've been gifted with the first cold of the season *sighs* While Autumn is my favourite season for many reasons {15 things I love about A/W blog post} I'm most definitely not a fan of the ol' cold and flu season. But in today's outfit post we're throwing it back to last week when I was more energetic and singing this jacket's praises! 

If you're a regular around here then you might've spotted an outfit post recently about my Missguided biker jacket. This was my summery take {well, sort of summery. You know the drill in Ireland!} on how to style biker jackets but today I'll be sharing the Autumn edition with this one I picked up in Vero Moda.....

| 3 Reasons To Own A Wine/Burgundy Jacket This Autumn |


1. To Brighten Your Wardrobe: Burgundy and wine tones are a classic way to add a splash of colour to your Autumn wardrobe. Mustard and rust aren't for everyone but burgundy & wine are safe colours that suit all skin tones and hair colour.

2. It Goes With (Almost) Everything: Black, grey, white, denim, cream, navy, you name it! For this look, I chose to wear multiple colours and I think the whole look tied in really well together. 

3. To Make A Statement: Not everyone is into florals, printed pieces or bright colours but burgundy or wine toned clothing is a simple way to make a statement for anyone who likes a minimalistic wardrobe. And if you're style isn't minimalistic then fear not because it's still a great colour to make a statement. Take this outfit for example, which piece stands out the most to you? Although there is a lot going on in this outfit, it remains the statement piece of the look and your eye just can't help but be drawn to the jacket.

| Why I'm Obsessed With Biker Jackets |


Recently, I've fallen in love with biker jackets, and since purchasing this wine faux leather version I've been trying to pinpoint why I love this trend so much. I've narrowed it down to three reasons: 

1. They're versatile meaning they come in all different styles ranging from (faux) leather to (faux) suede and they even have fleece-lined versions as well {swoon!} So there's one to suit every type of weather which is perfect for us Irish gals because we all know that we can experience all 4 seasons in one day here on this little island. 

2. They're edgy. I mentioned this in The Best Biker Jackets On The High Street blog post but I just love that they add an edgy feel to a girly outfit. 

3. They add texture to an outfit. If you've been reading my outfit posts for a while then you'll know how important texture is to my style. My style is far from minimalistic as I like an array of different textures to spice up my outfits and biker jackets are an effortless way to do this. The zips, the button detailing and the layered structure of the jacket all provide texture to an outfit without even making an effort with the rest of your pieces.
