F*Yeah Fridays – The blanket jacket

Sam from tech girl is gracing my blog again this week. In her last feature she was showing us how to rock a pair of Converse. She’s smartened up for this week’s F*Yeah Fridays look, wearing an on-trend blanket jacket.

Although this item was big internationally last year, we here in S.A. take a year to adopt any trend ha!

Not that I take trends too seriously anyway, but it’s fun to take note of them and see how and if you’d like to incorporate them into your seasonal wardrobe.

What is your favourite piece in this outfit?

The blanket jacket. (I call it my granny jersey but I reckon your term is a little more glam!)

Have you worn this combination before?

Never. I usually wear it more casually but with the blouse underneath it dresses it up a little more for client meetings etc.

What do you think is lacking in this look, if anything?

Maybe a pop of colour somewhere, if you like that in an outfit. So a colourful scarf in royal blue or pink tones maybe.


I love Sam’s casual Friday look today. I like the monochromatic vibe of the whole look, one thing she could try is perhaps a printed black and white scarf – it would be a clashing print to the jacket which could be fun..you know me and clashing prints.

Blanket jackets/ponchos are everywhere in stores right now…Sam got hers from Meltz – nice and easy on the budget 😉
