As 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!
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)
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)
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)
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)
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 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)
