Autumn and Winter, my two favourite seasons of the year. Personally, I think Cape Town is most beautiful during Autumn. The leaves begin to change colour – bright yellow, orange and red leaves are scattered throughout the city and countryside. And as the season begins to change, so does the fashion. We start wearing more layers of clothing, and pulling out those boots we stored away. Even though we are still experiencing scorching hot weather in Cape Town, I handpicked 5 affordable jackets for Autumn.
These 5 affordable jackets for autumn are cost effective and won’t break the bank. I chose 2 affordable jackets from The Fix, and 3 from Mrp. For Autumn/Winter 2017, expect lots of floral prints and metallic. I love metallic shades in gold, copper and silver, they add a touch of sparkle or glamour to any outfit. Floral prints are bold and playful, they are fun to wear and will certainly make a statement. Have a look at the 5 affordable jackets below, I’ve also stated how you can style them.
1.Quilted Bomber Jacket
The dusty pink quilted bomber jacket from Mrp immediately caught my eye. Pair it with a light blue skinny jeans, sneakers, white t-shirt and your weekend outfit is sorted. This jacket is a classic example of a time-less piece that can be worn throughout the year. It retails for R169.99 (found here).
2. Embroidered Denim Rider
Definitely my favourite affordable find. When I saw this jacket, I thought of pairing it with a slip dress and heels. By the way, I ordered this jacket whilst writing this blog post, hopefully it will be delivered soon. The jacket retails for R180.00 at Mrp.com (found here).
3. Military Gilet
The military gilet is perfect for the office, and can be worn with trousers and boots. Weather permitting, the sleeveless jacket can be worn on its own. During the colder Autumn/Winter days, you can wear a long sleeve top underneath. I love the gold buttons and the style of the jacket. It retails for R180.00 from Mrp (found here).
4. Floral Jacket
Since this beautiful floral jacket makes such a statement, you want to keep the rest of your outfit neutral. I have a pleated skirt (very light shade of pink) which will pair well with this floral jacket. I am a huge fan of sneakers, so I’d wear this jacket with a pleated skirt and plain/solid coloured sneakers. This jacket retails for R299.99 at The Fix stores.
5. Metallic Jacket
Personally, I prefer shades of gold for my skin, but I really love this silver metallic jacket from The Fix. I would pair this silver jacket with a black pencil skirt and a pair of wedges for an edgy look. This jacket retails for R299.99 at The Fix stores, they also have the same jacket in gold.
