1. The leather jacket is an all-time staple; throw this reworked classic (with a grey hoodie inspired lining) over a crisp shirt or an elegant bat wing tee and jeans combination to add a bit of edge into an outfit when it isn’t quite cold enough for a coat.
TIP: Try rolling up your jeans if wearing buckle boots to really draw attention to intricate Western detailing.
2. A great transitional piece, a floaty black dress can be paired with tights, statement boots and a clutch bag for the evening, or completely relaxed with bare legs, trainers in the warmer seasons to channel an effortless sports luxe feel.
TIP: To add a bit of grit to a simple black dress, throw on a leather jacket and keep accessories minimal; let the statement of block colour outfit do the talking. Alternatively, take sports luxe to the next level by adding a padded jacket to the mix – this will add texture to your outfit, when in reality it’s just a simple addition.
3. For instances where you want to balance a relaxed look with smartness and comfort, wear a boyfriend style cardigan over a staple white shirt and black jeans complete with a statement black bag; a muted colour palette and trainers keep it fuss free and understated, with a zip detailed bag is an easy addition of glamour.
TIP: This is a great transitional outfit, so why don’t you switch the trainers for buckle boots to inject a little bit more glamour into a laid back look, or create a softer feminine look with metallic silver pumps?
