Trend We Like: Trophy Jackets

Despite the fact that they sometimes remind me of a Spanish matador’s jacket, I have been longing for a trophy jacket ever since British model Rosie Huntington Whiteley (what a mouthful of a name) wore a Topshop one to the Serpentine Summer garden party in London.

What a great way to jazz up your outfit.  Embellished, beaded or sequenced – these jackets are all about adornment and are worn over your outfit to give you added flair. The end look is retro and not too over-the- top costume-like – so play the rest of your outfit down.  In Rosie’s case, she wore a violet coloured silk maxi dress.

Where to buy a trophy jacket

We suggest that you start your search for a trophy jacket in your favourite charity shop. Look for sequinned 80’s gear or any beaded outerwear/jackets – your Mums wardrobe might be your first port of call!

If you like the designer Matthew Williamson and have money to spend – then this jacket (€609)( from his S/S 09 collection (pictured top right) will add something eclectic to your wardrobe.

Topshop have a  couple of options too.  Apart from the funky one that Rosie Huntington-Whiteley wears here, we love this uber embellished jacket (€99) pictured here bottom right. 

The gold sequinned blazer which Ingrid mentioned back in May could also be viewed as a trophy jacket.

So, armed with our trophy jacket, it’s off to the garden party we go, olé!
