I don’t know if it’s just me, but I’m really feeling the cold lately. It’s freezing! I’m probably noticing it more because I’m out in it a lot more doing the school run. So I’ve been looking at different coats and jackets. I don’t know much about fashion in all honesty. I tend to wear what’s comfortable especially when it comes down to warm winter wear. Apparently, it’s all about layering but I just end up feeling like a big, fat marsh mellow!
Then I remembered a jacket I used to own, it was simple, black and quilted. Quilted jackets have been around a long time, going in and out of fashion. This year they are still going strong and I’ve seen a lot of ladies on the school run wearing them. Ranging from children to elderly women, oh and even men!
A quilted jacket comes in a variety of styles. It’s made up of tiny little pockets that are insulated with material so basically a smaller version of your duvet so you can guess the amount of warmth they provide. The little pockets can come in a range of shapes, the standard being squares/diamonds, but for children the shapes are endless! Which makes the jacket very versatile.
Considering the thinness of these jackets they are extremely flexible. This makes them very lightweight too even on the more bulkier jackets. It doesn’t restrict any movement which is perfect for a mother, father, grandparent, uncle, aunt, dog walker, oh and even children. Despite this they are still very warm.
I loved my quilted jacket. It was such a simple jacket that suited whatever the weather threw at me. It kept me warm in the winter, and I even wore it during colder summer days. It’s definitely a good all rounder jacket. I would even go as far as saying it’s a necessity in anyone’s wardrobe!
I wish I still had this jacket. It was amazing. I have been looking on Littlewoods and they have a fantastic range of quilted jackets and casual styles to suit everyone. The prices are pretty good too. It would definitely make a thoughtful birthday or Christmas present.
