The Great British Bake Off: Mary Berry's budget jackets

Published 31 August 2016 by

If you're a fan of the Great British Bake Off (and let's face it, who isn't!) you'll be glad to know that the show is now back to take over your Wednesday nights. While the culinary drama is a good reason to tune in, there is another – Mary Berry's outfits.

Any avid fan will know just how much a style icon Mary Berry has become during her time on the show. So with that in mind, we thought we'd tackle Mary's most prized style accessory – a statement jacket – and see whether we can find affordable versions on the high-street for a fraction of the price!*

Better than cake

Mary's partial to an embellished, printed or colour block jacket – here are our top picks for finding your own GBBO statement piece.

Floral

The legendary baker has become a fast favourite on social media for her love of bomber jackets. One M&S stork print jacket in particular sold out within hours of an episode in the 2014 series.

Looking for a colourful addition to your wardrobe? You could consider this navy floral bomber jacket from Primark. It features a beautiful floral print that makes it look much more expensive than its £9 price tag!

Embroidered

Alternatively, you could opt for something a little more subtle like this black satin embroidered bomber jacket from Primark. This bomber jacket perfectly combines a sporty feel with a feminine floral design.

It's a bargain at just £18 and would put the finishing touches to any basic outfit, Mary Berry style.

Lady in red

We all know that Mary's not afraid to wear a little colour, so why not liven up your office wardrobe with a red blazer like this one from F&F at Tesco. This blazer is recently reduced from £20 to £10, so you better hurry if you like what you see!

Waterfall

Whether you're looking for a cover up on an evening out or just something to wear around the office, this waterfall blazer from New Look could be right up your street. It's lightweight too, so will make the perfect jacket for in between seasons.

Reduced to just £13, it's great value!

Like a bird

Mary always picks bold, vibrant prints to make a statement with. You could do the same by choosing something like this multi-coloured birds and flower jacket from Debenhams.

This bird and flower print jacket has an oriental feel and is incredibly detailed – all for the budget-friendly price of £12!

Jacquard

It can be hard to know what to wear when heading to a formal occasion at this time of year. To make sure you're covered in case the weather takes a turn you could opt for something like this jacquard weave jacket from H&M.

This jacket wouldn't look out of place in Mary's wardrobe – it's chic, sophisticated and practical. It's currently reduced to £17.99 from £39.99!

Think you could give the GBBO contestants a run for their money? Start a new hobby and get baking.
