Daxon Parka Jacket Review

Daxon the fashion company have some great outfits for the Autumn/Winter season.

Part of the third largest home shopping network in the world their tagline is "The secret to flattering style" and you can see that in their clothes.

As a VIP Daxon blogger I was asked to pick an item to review for my blog. I like the padded jackets that are so popular at the moment so I picked this navy jacket available in standard and petite length.




Expert Design ladies Padded parka £55 

When I first got the jacket out of the packaging I was impressed with the softness of the fabric and the style of the coat. 
Being lightly padded but still warm for an autumn's day it looked like it would be a great staple to my wardrobe. So often coats are not cut flatteringly but this jacket with the belt gives you the illusion of a waist and nips you in, even if you are an apple shape like me. I like the gold coloured buttons and the pockets whilst not large are a very useful addition. The press stud storm flaps and the metallic looking zip all add to the detail.

So I took the jacket out on a crisp autumn day in my little seaside town. What I didn't realise is that this jacket has a water repellent coating so can deal with light showers. Well that was lucky! I was caught in a rain storm and wasn't sure how the jacket would cope, but I am pleased to tell you it coped admirably in the great British weather, keeping me dry (although the rest of me was not!) . Walking around it also kept me warm yet was still lightweight.
 After my venture out I can honestly say I am really pleased with the jacket. 

So I had a look at how easy it was to clean. Looking at the washing instructions it can also be washed at 30 degrees so that's a plus point, no need to take it to be dry cleaned. Don't you hate it when you realise your favourite coat has to be dry cleaned? 

To sum up this is a super addition to any wardrobe, water repellent and flattering this jacket has the style and looks of a much more expensive jacket, and at £55 represents fantastic value for money. Also available in other
 colours including taupe and red you can ring the changes with your mood if you don't want navy. I particularly like the red coat, but then again I like bright colours as they cheer me up.


One last thing, If you need to return items they also offer free returns and do a next day delivery service if you want that new outfit at the last minute. I think if you have a browse at the Daxon site you will be pleasantly surprised. Besides women's clothes they also do menswear, homeware and health care. Let me know how you get on.

What do you think of my jacket? Have you ever ordered from Daxon? Would you be likely to in future?

    1. There are some lovely pieces on their website. In the past they have aimed at the mature market but as you can see this jacket is quite trendy.

  7. I love this jacket! I've got a very similar Barbour one which isn't really warm at all, this would have been a much better purchase for a fraction of the price.
