The Joules Gosling Coat With Balenciaga Race Runners
I decided to name this blog post something along the lines of a quintessentially British look during the Autumn weather, purely because it is. This time of year when I’m out, I always see puffer coats absolutely everywhere and they’re always worn with skinny jeans and sports shoes. It’s somewhat of a completely classic English look for the modern day. We all love comfort and casual, and since most of these padded jackets are waterproof and warm (mine isn’t waterproof), it’s perfect for the weather that we usually have here. Since it chops and changes from cold to hot quite frequently, it’s ideal to wear a lightweight top underneath so you can remove it when you’re too hot.
I can safely say that 95% of the people I know and see around would own a jacket that’s padded. The usual colour is a khaki green, navy, or black, but I went a step further and opted for a burgundy purple shade. This one is by Joules and it’s the Gosling in Burgundy (more like plum). I bought it when I had 25% off from the brand and took a size UK 8, so it runs fairly true to size. I absolutely love it! It’s so comfy, cosy, warm, and easy to wear, I actually grab it all the time and never want to take it off. The faux fur around the collar is also removable if you want to just have it as the jacket, but it really keeps your neck snug. I even ended up with the navy version as well for different days and outfits!
For this particular look, I decided to pair my Joules Gosling with my James Jeans Black Skinny Jeans to keep it neutral, and then finish it off with my new Balenciaga Race Runners in Purple. How amazing are they? I recently bought them after saving up for a pair of amazing sneakers that made a statement, and these are definitely it! They’re metallic in parts and different shades of purple and black in others, plus incredibly comfortable. I will be doing a separate review on these soon for you, so stay tuned for that, but I think they’re the perfect match for the coat and the jeans. Don’t you? It’s a look that I am very fond of and one I wear often for casual days.
I definitely recommend this coat to you though, if you need one that’s warm and cosy, plus stylish, this could be it. It even comes in a longer version too (see here) which might be even warmer, but mine is available in this shade, navy, yellow, and red. Hope you have a wonderful rest of the weekend.
