On Wednesdays We Wear Pink
Although I can officially say autumn is upon us, it’s that kinda weird part of the year weather wise. One day it’s freezing cold and requires boots and scarves and hats and coats and the next day it’s skirts with no tights weather. Work that one out?? I always struggle to dress appropriately during this time of the year. I’m either too hot or too cold and I really just can’t win. So as of late, I’ve been on the lookout for light clothes that I can layer up. This way if I’m too cold I can put my jacket back on and like wise if the temperature increases just whipping off a layer will cool me down. I recently joined the pink suede jacket trend and here’s why I’ve been loving it.
- It’s pink. I am obsessed with pink. Not to defy Regina George, but On everyday of the week we wear pink. Why just limit to Wednesday?? The baby pink colour gives it such a feminine feel and adds a little touch of brightness to the autumn season and who wouldn’t want that? Pink actually suits more people than you would think. I think the hot pink days of the early 2000s has really put lots of people off the colour but the more modern toned down version can suit so many different people. Pink is a good alternative to white. White can be difficult to get right, it is either a strange shade or it gets dirty so easily. With pink I really feel like these problems are minimised.
- It’s the perfect medium between hot and cold. This jacket isn’t just stylish but also practical. It is a fine balance to find but this one seems to nail it on the head. Without being overly pessimistic about the state of the fashion community, clothes are either cute or practical. It feels like it’s a rarity to find something in between. Enter the pink jacket. I find that if I need it to, the jacket will keep me warm, but it isn’t too hot so that when I’m legging it for the bus I’m not sweating too much. Well, the sweat can’t be blamed on my fashion choices but more on my lack of physical fitness.
- It goes with so many different outfits. Whether it’s jeans and some converse or maybe a nice top and some heels they possibilities are endless. This jacket can really make an outfit. I have really been enjoying throwing it over my white shirt and jeans which I did a post on here. It gives it more of an edgy look. I also like how the buckles and embellishments aren’t too overpowering or intricate which can often be the case with many similar jackets. Experimenting which this jacket has been so much fun. This particular jacket is also very soft fitting and doesn’t feel restricting whatsoever.
- The price. Who doesn’t love a good bargain? I picked this jacket up from Tesco. Seriously you need their clothes in your life. After having searched high and low for a good quality alternative that didn’t break the bank I found this one and it works perfectly. Primark were stocking some recently but they never had any in my size which was tragic but in a way good as I managed to bag this one for only £15 more. At £35 I really don’t think that is too much of an outrageous price especially considering how much use I’ve already had out of it.
