Winter is all about loads of hot chocolate, snowballs, cozying up by the fire, and of course, amazing outerwear. A great jacket can be an investment piece that you’ll wear forever, but some people prefer to change it up every season.
Whether you’re looking to splurge on luxe labels or save with cheap and chic options, we have the right jacket to fit your budget. Here are our top picks for this season.
The Shearling Jacket
Luxe Label: Rag & Bone’s Finch shearling-lined bomber jacket ($1875) is simply sheer genius. Featuring a bias zip closure and contrast black leather trim, this jacket comes in a rich burgundy hue. Made from suede shearling, the bomber has side buckle straps and snap cuff closures.
Cheap & Chic: Topshop’s faux Sheepskin Biker Jacket ($126) is 100 per cent cool and at this price, you can still afford a cute knit toque and mitts.
The Fur Vest
Luxe Label: Elizabeth and James’ Woodland goat fur vest ($725) is simultaneously downtown cool and bohemian chic. Fully lined with 100 per cent silk, this sleeveless black fur vest is longer in the back than the front making it perfect for keeping your bum cozy. Fasten the front hooks or wear it open; either way, this vest is fabulous.
Cheap & Chic: The Long Fur Waistcoat Vest ($95.90) from Zara has all the trendy factor without the price tag. We love the chic grey hue and would wear this to brunch or for a night out.
The Cool Cape
Luxe Label: Alice + Oliva’s Emory Cape with Embellished Shoulders ($495) puts a glamourous touch on a classic winter cover-up. With chain, crystal and bead embellishments, this cape has two front pouch pockets perfect for cold hands.
Cheap & Chic: Available in navy and khaki, asos’ Warehouse Wool Mix Military Knitted Cape ($59) will keep you on trend and on budget.
These make us excited for long, cold days ahead. At least we’ll look cute while we stay warm.
