Last week I was on appointments and popped into River Island.
And then… across a sea of kimono jackets and aztec dresses I spotted this.
Fitted to the waist, a simple design (no buttons or fastenings) and with really cute floral brooch details (that you can take off if you want). The back has a wrap style that adds a bit more interest. I loved it instantly.
And it goes with EVERYTHING.
There are just so many styling options with a monochrome stripe. And with this jacket you don’t even need additional jewellery.
Or mix it up with a mismatched stripe skirt like this one from Reiss, which adds a quirky, could-be-a-suit touch to a work outfit.
It’s not just River Island having a striped moment, I’ve also spotted them at H&M and Zara too.
Buy one, they’ll be the most useful jacket you own.
