A) Puffer with a twist

“This is a beautiful quilted faux leather, and it’s a great colder weather jacket with really classic styling.”, $2,340

B) Sunny days

“It’s vegan leather and such classic styling. The trench is never going to go away. We’ve all been having this love affair with these shades of yellow: these bright, happy shades are just a positive statement.”, $325

C) Cool and comfortable

“Very sporty, very cool, and this is a great alternative to the moto jacket.”, $425

D) Shearling chic

“It’s cool, it’s cropped, it’s got a lot of style to it, and it’s a really unexpected colour.”, $750

E) Statement shoulders

“This is a nice antidote to all the black leather jackets around and could be dressed up or down.”, $445

F) Collars up

“This is a really clean, modern type of jacket with nice minimal details like these little slash pockets.”, $141
