Mini Edit: Trophy Jackets

Back in the depths of winter I wrote about rediscovering outerwear as statement pieces of clothing as opposed to just functional in A Coat Story. I can happily report that this shift has also been activated in my spring/summer wardrobe (my bank balance isn't as happy about this development!). This has opened up my eyes to a whole new array of outerwear possibilities; and means that your outerwear of choice is as considered and as much part of your outfit as the rest of it - not just an afterthought because you felt 'you had to take a coat or jacket'.

Introducing, the Trophy Jacket, which is by no means a new thing. It's a term coined by former British Vogue fashion features director Harriet Quick, who defined them as 'real status pieces that  are assuming the position once held by it bags. They transform outfits and can slick up anything from jeans to tube dresses. They vary in silhouette, but are all highly decorative and have big identities'.
Very fitting for right now, given that there are myriad trophy jacket options are we enter into summer. Choose from embellished shackets, blazers, bikers, trench coats, Chanel-inspired bouclé and tweed numbers, safari jackets and so many more.

I've had a little look and rounded up my favourite trophy jackets, available right now. I think they're all classic styles that won't date, and can all be slipped on to zjuzj up everything from a white tee, jeans and slingbacks and a camisole and chinos to shoulder-robed over a midi dress or paired with a pencil skirt.


1. Embroidered safari jacket, £69.99, Zara | I have this stunning embellished safari jacket - it has such beautiful details and looks equally good over jeans as it does over a dress!
2. Printed open front jacket, £69.00, M&S | Love this Chanel-esque open jacket in a beautiful red!
3. Melissa military jacket, £89.00, Monsoon | Love this military style jacket in this rusty terracotta shade.
4. Leather biker jacket, £119.99, Mango | A perennial style staple, this leather biker is this beautiful pastel pink is definitely a summer trophy jacket!
5. Embroidered denim jacket, £39.99, H&M | I've chosen to show off the gorgeous back of this embroidered denim jacket - denim jackets are back in a big way (did they ever go away?!) and I'll be rounding my favourites up in a post soon!
6. Tweed blazer with gem buttons, £69.99, Zara | Love this gently-Chanel-esque tweed blazer in a cool hue, adore the gem buttons. This jacket is perfect for summer!

What are your thoughts on the trophy jacket? Which one is your favourite?
