How to style up that summer jacket

My personal style is pretty classic. I mostly wear black, white and denim. I have a huge collection of plain t-shirts, statement t-shirts, shirts and jeans. I love a good jacket too. They are such an important investment piece. So, here is my edit on the key summer jackets for 2017.

The denim jacket has become a real hero piece in my wardrobe – it takes me through all sorts of looks. At the moment, I am massively in to an oversized fit, with vintage detail, I can just chuck it over my shoulders and wear with pretty much anything. Paired with my pleated metallic skirt and simple heels, it is the perfect meeting look for me. I feel really put together and can ease my way to drinks and dinner in the evening.

A bomber is a great ‘day-to-night’ piece too. I like the idea of wearing a gorgeous lacy dress with trainers and a bomber. It’s nice to play things down a bit sometimes. A bomber can ground an outfit nicely whilst still feeling on trend and edgy.

The tuxedo jacket – a structured shoulder is super flattering on any shape and can really draw the waist in. This is a staple outfit for me – trainers, jeans and a sharp jacket is always a winner. It also looks ultra-feminine over a dress. I love the fact it is becoming more acceptable to wear jeans for work and this jacket finishes your look. Pop a silk shirt on underneath and it looks like you’ve made an effort but it’s still easy and comfortable to wear all day.
