Ethnic Embellished Jackets

We're in that transitional period over here in the UK at the moment, in between seasons. Not quite summer anymore and heading into the cooler, autumn months. It's still warm enough that you don't need to reach for your woollens just yet, but sometimes a little jacket to sling on on those breezy days is needed. These embellished jackets have that ethnic-folk-tribal inspired summer vibe paired with chic functionality (they're also begging for a little DIY project or two). You could adopt an all-over statement look or just focus on certain areas if you're feeling more demure. I've always loved the style of jackets that look pretty plain and simple from the front, but have that un-expected design element blazoned across the back (you know, that whole 'business in the front, party in the back' vibe). You should be able to source some cheap, second hand jackets at your local charity shop. It's then just a case of sourcing some textiles that you like and attaching them to your jacket. I have a DIY project that I will be sharing with you very soon,  inspired by some of these amazing pieces.
