These days I can be quite picky about adding pieces to my wardrobe and I always try to think carefully before parting with my cash, as I want to ensure I’ll wear something for more than just a season—even if it is just a high-street buy. But when it came to putting together my autumn capsule, there was one clear winner: the fringed jacket.
The look is a continuation of my A/W 18 penchant for anything Wild West–inspired, and I have been fawning over these cowboy-inspired jackets for weeks now, particularly after spotting one on Monikh Dale. To make sure it had longevity in my wardrobe I asked myself: Would I buy this even if it wasn’t technically in fashion? I concluded that I would, which hopefully means I’ll love it long after the style disappears from Instagram feeds.
Either way, I could not recommend this jacket enough: It comes in a very convincing faux suede fabric and a flattering boxy silhouette. I also think it’ll look just as good with jeans and boots (as pictured) as it will thrown over a midi dress. If that’s not enough, it also comes in at a seriously budget-friendly £40. What are you waiting for?
