Recently, I’ve been hunting for a jacket that’s suitable for Fall weather since I’ll be travelling out of the country soon. ~super excited mode~ It’s been a while since I’ve traveled to anywhere cold so my ‘cold weather’ apparel were either hopelessly out of date or have been donated to charity.
Nothing makes a girl happier than shopping for new outfits! hehe (ok in my case I would be really happy with a decadent chocolate dessert too… but shopping trumps dessert in this case!)
After doing some browsing, I more or less settled on getting a biker jacket (cos I’ve always wanted one and this was my perfect excuse!) Now the next challenge was getting one in my size!
First I spotted this Quilted Biker Jacket from Top Shop and I loved the fur collar (removable) but unfortunately they only had it in size 14 at the store and it was a bit too snug for my liking.
H&M Biker Jacket (RM149)
Next, I went to H&M and found a lot of biker jackets! Very subtle differences between the few styles and they were priced at a more affordable price tag. Some had a thicker lining inside, others had belts at the waist. I had to wear a size 44 for the biker jackets though and only one style came in that size.
I also checked out Uniqlo’s selection and finally found the one! 🙂 I decided on Uniqlo’s version even though its pricier than H&M’s due to the overall fit of the jacket which I found suited me and complimented my frame better. 🙂
H&M & Uniqlo both had a wide range of other jackets (knitted, fleece jackets, coats etc)
Oh and of course I could not pass up this super cute H&M Cat Print Jersey dress (RM79.90)!! <3 I’ts made from a thicker material as well, so should be good for colder Fall weather layered with a jacket and worn with leggings 🙂 Check out other ways to style this dress here and here.
So now that I’ve got the jacket down, I can’t wait to put together more outfits for colder weather (which will also have to be practical enough to be worn in our hot climate! lol)
