Nothing makes us go green with envy quite like when you spot a girl rocking a beaut handcrafted jacket only for her to tell you, ever so coolly, that she picked it up from a market stall on her last (no doubt Instagram-worthy) holiday. We hate thatgirl.
However, thanks to the influence style mavens Olivia Palermo and hold over fashiondom, the once hard-to-come-by cover-up is now one of the hottest buys on the high street. Both ladies have been rocking heavily embroidered jackets of late, and the emerging must-have hasn’t gone unnoticed by our fave affordable fashion hotspots.
The key to nailing the bazaar-found vibe is to look for styles with hyper-bright needlework and authentic mirror embroidery. However, if you want to ease yourself into the trend, snap up a jacket with a dark base colour – you’ll be surprised how much it’ll actually go with.
Use it to give an edgy twist to your after dark outfits or elevate your casual staples to chic new heights. All this without any of the awks market haggling? Boost!
Here’s our fave 3 from the high street…
