Winter Must Haves: The Humble Padded Jacket

If I was to choose one signature piece of clothing to get me through the cold, winter months, it would undoubtedly be a classic padded jacket.

Of course, there’s plenty of other must-have winter wardrobe winners too but I reckon this is the one item that I’d be lost without. It’s a real go-to of mine.

I just picked up this smart black Barbour International hooded style from the mens zone at Very. It’s a modern take on a fairly classic style and features 2 integrated welt pockets for extra warmth and comfort.

At the moment, I’ve been teaming it with a pair of black sweats since I’ve not been anywhere much but you can style it up with some dark blue jeans or a shirt for a slightly smart look too.

A simple quilted coat is the ideal thing to throw on whether your heading to pick up the shopping, for a weekend walk or (rules permitting) are off to meet a couple of mates down the pub.

Every year it seems the price of clothing continues to go up more and more, but the good news is there are many cheap clothing stores that carry a number of well-designed clothing for anyone in the family. If you’re in a position where you cannot afford to shop for the name brands, then there are many options available.
