In Tuesday’s post I was dressing for the hot and humid weather in shorts and a vest; since then the heat has dropped away to be replaced by cooler, wet conditions. While it’s by no means cold, it serves as a reminder that Autumn is just around the corner. That means I’ll be getting plenty of wear out of my jackets, especially lightweight biker jackets.
I like them because they go with almost anything – trousers, jeans, a pencil skirt or even a dress. The fact that I can buy them in a multitude of colours just makes them more appealing. As well as this khaki one (previously seen here) I also have one in bright blue, plus a thicker one in mustard for Winter, which I’ll feature in due course. The red lifts the muted tones of the khaki faux suede biker jacket and cropped grey trousers. The last time I wore this jacket on the blog I paired it with red…maybe it’s time to think of some alternatives!
This type of outfit will serve me well as we transition from Summer to Autumn. I can’t help looking for jackets like this in other colours; they’re just so comfortable and versatile. Unlike real suede, this faux suede fabric is slightly stretchy and feels much softer. As it’s lightweight it would be ideal for travelling in, and the elasticity means it can easily accomodate a thicker layer underneath if required. That said, I’m hoping I won’t be needing chunky sweaters for a good few weeks yet, maybe months. I never did put my Winter wardrobe away though…it’s always good to be prepared!
