The Perfect Weekend Jacket: Fifty Plus Style

I bought this Uniqlo jacket last season and it’s one of the most versatile items in my wardrobe.  It literally is light as a feather and squashes down to nothing, so you can pack it easily. It layers really well, so I’ve worn it in both warm and cooler weather.  It’s great for shopping in town because once you get warmed up, you can stuff it in your shopping bag and it doesn’t weigh you down.  It was £59.99 and I’ve definitely had my cost per wear out of it.  I’m wearing it here on a short break in Jersey when it was only about 10 degrees and I was warm and cosy as well as looking ‘pulled together’. I’ve accessorised it with a scarf from Primark and the little black bag is by Faith at Debenhams.  The sunnies and the jeans are from Next.  There’s only one downside, and that’s waterproofing, but you can’t have everything!  I have a similar one from Gap in black which isn’t quite as light, but still useful.  I have a feeling that I’ll be buying another one soon, not sure what colour to get though!
