Make a Statement This Summer

This summer is all about statement (also known as trophy) jackets. From sequins and bows, to embellishments and bold prints, these jackets instantly add the 'wow' factor to any outfit. Team them with plain body con dresses and skirt/vest combos for a glamorous look and opt for lightweight, short sleeved versions to keep you cool throughout the summer.

Many designers made these jackets the centrepieces of the Spring/Summer collections, such as Balmain (above), Stella McCartney and Luella.

This military denim jacket from Your Eyes Lie is gorgeous and perfectly affordable at £90.. find it here

For those of you with deeper pockets, this floral armour jacket from Matthew Williamson is truly stunning, £1,495. Find it here

Personally I opted for this bow crop jacket from Topshop, as it's also nude so it hits two key trends in one.

And here it is on it's first night out..

Fearlessness and balance are the keys to statement jackets: don't be afraid to wear something a little more bright or detailed than usual BUT make sure you balance this out by keeping the rest of your outfit as plain as you can - block colours if possible. I plan to wear my new jacket with a black vest, black hareem pants, my trusted Mulberry Bayswater (also in black) and tan gladiator sandals.

Happy shopping!

Lots of love, Miss Colley x
