ALL IN THE DETAILS: Quilted Jackets

Jackets are a necessity for everyone’s closet during fall and winter. These essential pieces have taken many different shapes and forms this season. We’ve seen everything on the runway! Some predominant styles are double breasted jackets, quilted, metallic, pale pink, bomber jackets and bright colored fur among many others. One of the trends that caught my attention was the quilted jacket. Although this trend has been around for a while now, it has persisted in popularity. Some of the designers applying this recently are Ulla Johnson and Christopher Raeburn. They both had a relaxed approach to it making their looks effortlessly chic.

Recently, I came across someone incorporating this particular trend into her outfit. She was wearing a Barbour, red quilted jacket that caught my eye. What I liked about this jacket was its versatility. It could be worn in any season, making it the perfect investment for a student. She was also wearing black leggings, brown boots and an animal print scarf. Her look was perfect for the library or just a casual day in town. I also noticed she was wearing small accessories that gave the outfit the perfect finish. She was wearing a brown Fossil watch and a silver ring with a decorative stone.

After seeing the Barbour Jacket, I decided to research a bit about the brand and the product. To my surprise, I found that this model has been around for a long time now but the brand keeps adding one or two new colors each season. This is something we should keep in mind for future shopping sprees. So try this trend! Buy a quilted jacket for this winter and make it an outstanding detail in your casual outfits.
