the anorak and why I love to wear one!

the ultimate jacket for on the go...

I love a good anorak.   They can really lift an outfit!   I love how they are lightweight, however heavy duty.   You can scrunch them up into a bag and twist or tie them around your waist.   They are sort of military, utility, cargo-esque.   They are fun!

The perfect thing to throw an anorak over, is a simple denim jean and tee.   It gives you an extra layer and is generally longer, which I love because it covers the back.   Haha, you know I love to tie things around my waist!

I’ve chosen some really cool jeans for today.   They are a high waisted straight leg with a really strong uneven hemline that has had quite a serious amount of distressing taken to it.   Being a darker denim, it accepts a lighter denim jacket easily which gives more depth to the entire outfit.   A bit of double denim is always a good idea!

For today I added boots and a black bag to give it a slight trans seasonal feel.   However how gorgeous would the outfit be with flat sandals and neutral accessories on a warmer day!   I would even throw it over a summer dress…

All in all, I think an anorak is a must have jacket item to own for those days you just want to throw something on with out too much stress or worry.   It’s a super comfortable item to wear and creates a great weekend or street style outfit.

I love how you can treat it like a bit of old rag too, haha… The scrunchier and wrinklier the better!    Perfect for busy mummas on the go!   Not to mention a traveller’s dream… These jackets are great to take on a plane or for long drives.

What are your thoughts on the anorak!?   I love them!!
