Let’s face it: jacket season comes around a little too quickly every year. Fortunately, winter fashion is cute AF, so there’s no complaints here. Jeans, chunky knits, scarves and ankle boots – the only thing missing is a warm statement jacket to finish the look. And at Billy J Boutique, we’ve got plenty of jackets that are guaranteed to turn up the heat no matter the weather outside.
No doubt if you’re living in cities like Melbourne or Sydney, it’s almost always a good idea to carry a jacket around with you when you leave the house – even in summer! After all, you never know when the weather will turn. In the beautiful Sunshine Coast, we’re pretty lucky with year-round warm weather. But, even we can’t escape the cooling sea breezes, which can leave us experiencing chills that we feel in our bones. Bottom line: no matter where you are in Australia – or the rest of the world, for that matter – you need a good jacket (or seven) that will carry you through each season.
The 6 jackets that deserve rack space in your wardrobe
From desk to drinks, brunch to bar, there are endless choices when it comes to jackets. And with so many different styles, it just makes sense to have one for every occasion. Here’s our top 6 faves that you just have to add to your wardrobe (you can thank us later).
The Denim Jacket
The denim jacket has been around since time immemorial (or so it feels), and there’s no way this list would be complete without a mention. Coined the ‘summer jacket’, a denim jacket is extremely versatile: wear over a casual day dress, match with your jeans or throw on over a crisp white tee and skirt. If the look you’re going for is cool, sharp and understated, then a denim jacket will tick all the boxes.

The Black Blazer
When you’re attending an upcoming formal event, nothing looks more luxe than a structured black blazer. While we’re still waiting for the day when denim will be elevated to “black tie”, we’re happy to settle for the black blazer. A timeless staple, it’s the perfect item that adds a sophisticated touch to your outfit. Whether it’s a boxy silhouette, a double-breasted front or even made from velvet, your blazer will be the piece that pulls any and every outfit together.

The Printed Jacket
For those days or nights out when you’re feeling a little bit extra, make a statement in a printed jacket. Dare to stand out in a hot pink jacket or go for gold in a pretty floral cropped coat. Our favourite? You just can’t go wrong in a leopard print jacket. We hate to be a walking cliché but it really does bring out your wild side…

The Motorcycle Jacket
Release your inner Sandy (without the cig) in a faux leather jacket. Seriously, if you don’t have a biker jacket in your wardrobe, what even are you doing? Maybe it’s the edginess or the air of attitude that we love about it, but we somehow score additional street cred when we throw a motorcycle jacket over our shoulders. Whether cropped, with ribbed arms, featuring zippers and buckles, spikes or studs, the motorcycle jacket really does pair well with anything else you can throw on.
The Cape Blazer
A distant cousin to the structured black blazer, the cape blazer is an elegant piece that manages to stay in place without restricting your arm movements. Need we say more? Truly, it’s a look to die for.

The Windbreaker Jacket
It’s never been easier to look cute while going for your daily morning jog with the windbreaker jacket. Designed to combat the wind chill and light rain, a windbreaker jacket is defined by its lightweight feel and slick, synthetic fabric. Snatch one with adjustable drawstrings at the bottom and a cute hood for the ultimate in luxe activewear.
