The embellished jacket has long been a runway favourite, with the likes of Chloe and Lanvin often opting to include ornate, embroidered pieces as part of their collections. Created to make a statement, we’ve seen so many beautifully elaborate garments adorned with everything from sparkles and sequins, to jewels and rich threading. The one that I’m wearing here is another Zara sell-out jacket (Sorry- there are still a few floating about on eBay!) and it’s certainly not difficult to see why it was so coveted. A street-style favourite, the texture and depth of this piece gives it a distinct and expensive feel, and the sheer weight of the detail mustn’t be underestimated! I think the trick with the little embellished jacket is to let it make a statement by pairing down the rest of your look. I’ve gone for subtly bleached denim shorts, a casual t-shirt and tanned leather sandals for a relaxed, wearable style. Of course, there’s no denying just how beautiful it could also look with bright-white jeans and a pair of killer heels for an evening of dinner and cocktails. Below, I’ve included my three favourite new season jackets that are sure to look amazing.
