So as promised, this is part 2 of the Winter Essential: Camo Jacket series.

Winter has finally arrived and we’ve been waiting patiently for rain in Cape Town. Even though there’s no rain it’s been freezing outside. There are some lovely coats trending at the moment, but this has to be my favourite. Did I mention I snatched this one right out of my dad’s closet!?

I have mentioned a few times how much versatility you can add to your closet, and how you can instantly change the look and feel of an item simply by changing the way you style it. I‘ve struggled with this the most when it came to putting outfits together, usually only wearing an item one or two ways, but once you’ve figured it out, you’ll feel like you’ve doubled the amount of clothes you own. For me, flexibility in an item justifies any purchase, or in my case it justifies me having never returning it to my dad.

The look in the previous post was a bit more daring but, here I’ve gone with something a little more formal/classy if you will, pairing it with a cute little black dress, knee high boots and a cute clutch purse to elevate the look.


For those of you still looking to purchase a similar jacket, I  have compiled a list of Camo Jackets and the links to where you can purchase them. You’re welcome 😉
