I could wear my jackets day in, day out! I have to admit, I struggle to dress casual. I've never been a girl able to throw on a hoodie and jeans - i prefer the 'I have made an effort today' kinda look. I've got a little growing obsession with smart jackets at the moment (an obsession my bank balance is not thanking me for!) but I have found a way to incorporate them for every day activities!
I love wearing my jackets with a well cut black/white tee with jeans and converse. This look is my attempt to appear casual - I feel the jacket adds an elegant and powerful touch to such a simple outfit.
I went to the pub with girlfriends on friday and couldn't resist debuting one of my new jackets (it was payday after all!!). My struggle was to ensure I didn't look to traditional, and ahem, dull and boring! My decision? Black disco pants, a white embroided cropped top, black stilettos, chanel bag and of course, the new tweed jacket. I feel the shape of the disco pants and cropped top allows the outfit to be sexy and womanly yet the jacket tones it down. There is nothing worse than people mistaking you for Sandy out of Grease! (Beware with the disco pants!)
