Autumn/Winter 2017 jacket trends

Autumn/Winter 2017 jacket trendsAs much as I love #dressingthebump and all the stunning maternity styles that I’ve been showcasing, I’m actually looking forward to my post-preggy days when I’ll be able to squeeze into my favorite outfits again. (Operative word being “squeeze”) I think the real score is that baby Jo will be joining us at the end of May, which means that I can start shopping for Autumn and Winter gear now! I spotted some really fab Autumn/Winter 2017 jacket trends on Superbalist – six styles in all – and I have to have one of each! From puffers to bombers, super svelte parkas and military styled coats to over-sized biker jackets and elegant faux furs, there is something for everyone. Yep, even you Margaret. Check out these style ideas and you could win a Superbalist voucher to get that jacket that you’ve had your eye on!

puffer colThe Puffer
I love everything about this trendy Tahoe puffer jacket. It’s lightweight and comfy, yet elegant and chic. I like that it’s slightly paded and that it has a high neck and slit pockets. Plus how could you not love a jacket that can pretty much be paired with anything?! From blue denims and heeled boots to leggings and sneakers, the puffer jacket is an easy way to glam up any outfit, no matter the occasion. (Price: R599)

bomber colThe Bomber
If you’re as old as I am (and we’re both quite young, aren’t we?) you’d remember the classic bomber jacket. I love that this beaut is back in season and found a really pretty quilted bomber jacket on Superbalist that I want to need! This bronze-coloured gem has the classic bomber jacket silhouette, with a feminine cut and ribbing on the cuffs and hemline. You could pair it up with heels or even active wear, and you would still look on point. (Price: R699)

parka colThe Parka
If you’re the outdoorsy type, you’ll fall inlove with this dusty olive, big pocketed parka – a definite must have for the colder Winter months. This jacket is padded for warmth and has a big, detachable hood that features faux fur along the edge. I mean, I would go to the Grahamstown Festival JUST to wear this. But you could pull off this trendy look pretty much anywhere, paired with a pair of skinny jeans and ankle boots. Very cute. (Price: R600)

biker colThe Biker
The biker jacket is a edgy statement piece that is a must-have this season. I love the cropped fit of this faux-leather jacket. It makes me feel like I can be a ‘rock n roll’ AND super mom all at the same time. The jackets enlarged collar, snap-button closures and zipper pockets gives it that biker-style edge and the beautiful tan colour could work with just about anything. (Price: R849)

coat colThe Coat
Mom, do yourself a favour and invest in a high quality Winter coat, like this beaut from the brand Selected Femme. Tip: coats with longer silhouettes, like this Zanna wool coat, adds length and gives the appearance of a longer torso. I would definitely go for a basic black, double breasted coat, like this one. I like that it has a button up front and a lined inner. Classy and easy to wear. (Price: R2199)

faux colFaux Fur
Faux furs are all the rage at the moment. If you’re not into the over-the-top glam that a long faux fur jacket could bring, how about a shorter styled jacket, like this one. It has a comfortable fit, and a beautiful colour variation, that is not too bold yet still makes a statement. Simply stunning! (Price: R1299)

  1. Ooooh those Iris Parka’s come in SO MANY colours! The sort of rusty brown one is so nice. And the cream coloured one. Why do I have such a thing for hoods with faux fur? I love that length of jacket because if you wear them with a short skrit/dress and boots I think it looks too hot. Thanks for the intro to Superbalist! I’m collecting online clothing stores these days. They keep me from having to trek to the shops!

  2. I have a ‘thing’ for jackets! I don’t know why. I love the Jamie Seoul wool coat in black, because it’s so versatile..

    And is slimming!! Bonus!!!

    Would love to win xxx

  3. Ooooh. I love the Sierra short down jacket. I’m always outside and have permanently cold hands and feet during winter because I don’t ever have a warm enough jacket that I’m not afraid to get dusty. This would be totally perfect…I’d look hot and stay warm!

  4. Wow spoilt for choice but if I had to choose it will be the Maggie lightweight coat I like the fact that is light , which is comfortable and perfect for me, I prefer something lighter, the length is perfect for me. Versatility can be worn with my casual and formal wear . Thank you for the introduction to these beautiful collection definitely going to treat myself .
    Great review.

  5. Embroidered front tie jacket…beautifully boho!
    I’m really impressed by Superbalist and the wide range of coats and jackets available.

  6. Freya faux leather biker jacket a bargain at R649.I can pair it with everything…stunning colour that’s a perfect match to my new boots.

  7. I also chose the tahoe jacket as one of my picks (but the one with the hoodie). It’s such a stylish jacket!

  8. As I get closer to the nigh 3 0 I find that I’m trying to hold onto my youth even more. Haha I’ve always, always wanted a super cool faded denim jacket. I love the one by Viper that is sold by Superbalist. It’s been sitting in my cart for ages. Please help me checkout by passing on that voucher to me.

  9. I love the simplicity of the very pretty Missguided Soft Touch Bomber Jacket. Also, it’s really cool… because, you know, we’re still really young! 😀

  10. There are so many stunning jackets and coats I’m obsessed with trench coats and faux fur ones and the mint green Teddy faux fur coat really stood out. Loving it.

  11. Omw 🙂 I LOVE them ALL 🙂 but would love the white Iris Parka… so soft & stylish ne… but I am also picturing myself wearing the Milla Blazer to the office or even rocking the million puffer jacket on a chilly nite out…..

  12. I absolutely LOVE the green parka jacket – it’s great for any occasion . It’s something that can easily be dressed up or casual . One will always look super stylish and chic in this and ON point 😉
