The time has finally come. It’s getting darker earlier, and we can now dig out all of our Winter coats. With the recent weather conditions, I can actually say that I’ve finally got the ‘Autumn feels.’ The whole of September was shockingly warm to the point that I could get away with wearing just a T-shirt and denim jacket draped over my shoulder. Although the weather is slowly changing and getting slightly colder, I’ve still got most of my outerwear tucked away. However, whilst I was out randomly window shopping, I came across this beautiful faux fur biker jacket in Whistles. Even before I had tried it on, I had fallen in love with it over and over again in my head. So I tried it on and my gosh, I didn’t want to take it off. I love everything about this jacket – the colour, shape and fit. Just sheer perfection. I purchased it around September but whenever I tried to wear it out, I was absolutely roasting in it. The first time I wore it was actually on the day of this shoot in London. It’s the perfect Winter coat amongst the many on the high street, and I’ve simply just paired it with some straight jeans, a turtleneck and my metallic silver boots.

When Burgundy is worn with metallics, it transforms it from a wonderfully understated colour into a rich and regal tone. Silver gives you a perfect and cool contrast to deep red. I’ve kept my accessories quite simple just opting for some earrings to avoid throwing off the rest of my outfit. This jacket is definitely a piece that will take me from chilly October evenings right through until the unbearable temperatures in February. As I mentioned in my previous post, I’ve toned down my wardrobe this season, playing around with some key staples, incorporating some colour pop textures. If you’re looking to inject a little fun into your wardrobe without being OTT, then this faux fur biker jacket in a subtle burgundy tone, is exactly what you need. What outerwear pieces are you investing in this season?
Until next time,
