To me, although I’ve never really had a black jacket, it’s definitely a wardrobe staple. I mean I’ve had leather jackets and all that, but to me, a black jacket is just timeless, but then so is a leather jacket . . but this isn’t a post about a leather jacket!
I got this piece from Jigsaw and specifically chose this one as it’s more me, as black jacket’s go. I love the relaxed tailoring and loose fabric, I don’t think I’m for ready super sharp tailoring just yet though I am obsessed with Jigsaw’s tailoring section!
I didn’t know how to style it when I first got it, I’m so used to more relaxed pieces that wearing a black jacket, though a wardrobe staple as discussed, seemed foreign to me. I love it with just the jeans and heels, it’s the perfect smart casual look and I’ll be styling it in plenty of different ways soon so keep an eye out!
I’m loving mixing in more tailored pieces with my wardrobe, I feel like they’re timeless pieces that instantly make a piece look smart and pulled together. As my style develops I’m starting to realise the importance of investing in a few higher priced pieces that mix in well with some of my favourite high street pieces! See what I mean in my previous post about how jackets make anything look smart!
These Public Desire heels are honestly uh-mazing. I’ve been lusting after these Topshop ones for a while so when PD brought out their own more affordable pair it was pretty much a no brainer. Just take a moment to appreciate the cuffs on those jeans. . . they deserve it.
