Why you need a windbreaker in your life right now!

When I think of windbreakers I can’t help but to think of the 80s and 90s. Pops of colour, electric prints, and even Will Smith in Fresh Prince of Bel Air comes to mind.

Falling in the athleisure category naturally it’s a garment that catches my eye. I know it’s something that will easily integrate with my existing wardrobe. However, in general think it’s an underrated garment that’s often overlooked.

The reality is summer is almost over we and need to start thinking about trans-seasonal dressing. We all know Canberra has its' moments with gusty winds and sporadic rainfall.

*dah dah dum sound effect* Queue the windbreaker….

Lightweight enough to be crumpled in your bag and pulled out as you need (or tied around your waist as a statement).

Water resistant and protecting against the wind they get the tick of approval from me. While you can get some very minimalistic designs in black and white, I particularly like bold prints and block colours. Who doesn’t I love a vintage throw back?

I’ve styled this jacket with a jeans and crop top. But it’s something I that will translate with a more sporty look such as black tights and gym singlet or event with some trackies and heels.

**Public service announcement** So I scored this Ellesse jacket from the Canberra Outlet Centre at Platypus Shoes. Maybe I am late to the party but I didn’t realise that they started selling apparel! Hosting some of my favourite street wear brands like Ellesse and Ivy Park, this store is sure to tempt me some more #SMH!
