Is it coat season yet? Well, judging from the sudden burst of sunshine the UK is currently in the midst of, perhaps not quite. But one thing we can definitely get on board with now is the prospect of a new season jacket – and luckily, H&M has just the thing.
Scroll through your Instagram and it probably won’t be long before you stumble upon someone wearing its new herringbone-weave shirt jacket, which is being snapped up by the style set in record quick time thanks to its versatile fit, neutral colour palette and amazing price.
As the influencers who’ve already got their hands on it have proved, the tonal shacket can be styled with almost anything, from your favourite denim to trainers and a satin slip skirt.
You can layer it over lighter summer dresses to get more wear out of them now, and then button it up and wear it as a shirt under a proper cover-up when the temperatures finally drop.
What’s more, some have even gone as far as to suggest that it makes a great dupe for Chloé’s similar cult checked jacket, which Cosmopolitan reports was released as part of the designer label’s AW17 collection for a cool £1,565.
H&M’s dupe comes in at £29.99, making it a much more affordable take on casual checked chic. It’s also part of the brand’s CONSCIOUS edit, made from 90 per cent recycled polyester that means its a more sustainable option than many other jackets, too.
As it’s a relaxed fit buy, you only get two options – S/M, or X/XL, but as its an oversized silhouette, you might be surprised at how many sizes this actually spans.
You can order it online or head into stores to try it on – either way, act fast, as we predict a sellout on the cards.
