When I first stumbled on this sherpa jacket, I didn’t think that I’d be loving it for years to come. In fact – when I first bought this jacket, back in autumn 2016, I was merely looking for a coat that I could throw on, wear out – and potentially donate a few seasons later. Flash forward two years, and this olive sherpa jacket is one of my most-worn coats in my collection. In fact, it’s probably one of my favourite three.
If you guys have been caught up on my Instagram lately, you’ll have seen the sheer amount of green – and olive – clothes that I’ve been wearing lately. It seems that every outfit could do with a touch of green. And the shade of olive is my favourite for almost anything. From jackets to shirts to chinos and accessories, incorporating earth tones like olive gives depth and ties in really great with other neutrals or earthy colours, too. And bearing in mind that 90% of my wardrobe are either neutrals or earth tones, I can’t find an excuse not to wear this colour on repeat!
As far as sherpa jackets go, this one is by far my favourite. I picked it up from Primark – and although I have two more sherpas. One denim/sherpa from Topman and a sherpa-borg coat from ASOS, if I’m going for a relaxed autumn activity I’m always reaching for this coat instead. It’s lightweight, yet insulated so that you’ll remain cosy no matter what you’re doing.
It’s also quite relaxed – being of a cheaper make, it’s not structured. Meaning that it sits comfortably and cosy on me regardless of whether I’m wearing layers or not. It also packs down really flat – which I love – because I can easily take it on trips with me.
Unfortunately, since Primark don’t hold on to their clothes, I can’t find it online. But I have linked similar sherpa jackets throughout this post, if you’re looking for some outfit inspiration. P.S. They’ve just started stocking this coat, which is very similar.
Have you added a sherpa jacket to your collection?
Pin this for later!
