Today my outfit includes a blanket scarf worn as a jacket, which was a huge trend last year that I really embraced and thought I would re visit it this autumn.
All of the items in this post I have had for a while, and I wanted to make the point that you don’t always have to buy new to be stylish.
I love fashion and do follow some trends, but most of the time I do like to stay classic, and invest in items that will last more than just one season. This doesn’t always mean designer products either. Some of the low-priced items I have in my wardrobe have a classic style. I have had them for seasons and they never date. I’m always a fan of quality and style over quantity, and do wear a mix of designer, high street and lifestyle brands.
Today I am wearing some black trousers and a black tee both classic high street items that can be worn in various different ways casual and dressy. I have used a tweed effect blanket scarf which was purchased from ZARA last winter and have belted it to make into a jacket / cardigan in some pics and unbelted too more like a wrap. My shoes are from Prada and handbag is by Vivienne Westwood. The necklace is from Joules clothing. I have had the Joules Tara Necklace a while now. It is still available online in the outlet section. This is my must buy item as it is a classic necklace that will never date and is amazing quality and weight for the price. It’s also raining cats and dogs today so I’ve had to bring out the brolly in true British style.
