The girls over at nowistyle do know how to spoil me! I always get cute surprise items with my collab parcels (thank you so much, girls!) and when I opened the most recent one that arrived last week, a cropped winter jacket was the first thing that caught my eye.
I really liked the idea of a warm cover-up in the shape of the iconic Chanel box jacket; kept in classic clean black and adorned with tweed trims for added elegance, reminiscent of its famous ‘big brother’.
The day we shot these pics was a very sunny one thankfully – I really can’t stand the cold – but I can perfectly imagine wearing this cropped winter jacket even when temperatures drop once again (and they will, there’s not even snow yet).
In case someone insists on dragging you outside into the cold and you’re like me and just can’t bring yourself to put on ‘practical clothing’: just add a pair of good thermal tights under your jeans, layer tops wisely underneath the jacket – I really love bodysuits for extremely cold days – and you’re ready for some winter action in style!
