The ZARA faux leather mustard jacket has been one piece that everyone seems to be wearing this past while. I actually tried it on about two months ago and whilst I absolutely loved the look of it, I thought the colour was just that bit too strong for me.. if only it had been toned down ever so slightly, it would have been perfect. This started me on a mission to find an alternative mustard biker jacket that would compliment my colouring and complexion that bit better.
A few weeks on, I'd seen somebody post this Missguided mustard suedette jacket on Instagram, and I knew I had to have it. It just seemed that bit more wearable (for myself anyway) as the colour didn't look as intense as the ZARA jacket. Maybe I'm mad for actually noticing the difference in shade, but I am definitely glad that I waited and picked up the Missguided one instead! I decided to pair it with a slightly longer subtle striped shirt from Warehouse (now on sale) to give a bit of length to the outfit as the jacket is a cropped style, along with my deep blue high-waisted Topshop Joni jeans.
Both jackets from Missguided and ZARA are still available.. and both are £40 each. Items are linked below as always. For size reference, I ordered a size 8 in the Missguided jacket and it fits fine although it is a relaxed fit, so if you prefer a very tight fit then you might be best ordering one size down. x
Thanks so much for reading as always.. I'd love to know what you think of the mustard biker jacket trend in the comments below! xox
