HOW TO DRESS DOWN A SUIT JACKET

HOW TO DRESS DOWN A SUIT JACKET

A great suit jacket or blazer is another must have for your wardrobe, but sometimes I find that they can look a little too smart for every occasion. Therefore, I’ve been trying to perfect the dressed down look, while not looking like I’m wearing my gym kit with my mums old suit… no thank you!

I prefer a long-line blazer that covers my hips as I find this suits my figure better and is much more flattering. Instead of tailored trousers I went for these joggers-come-trousers from Uniqlo which are made in a super soft velvety type material. Whenever I wear these my friends seems to want to touch them quite a bit, hehe. Unfortunately I don’t think they sell them anymore, gutted, but I could be wrong.

Obviously I chose a roll neck to go with this outfit as they have been attached to me all winter. I must have about 10 of them on repeat. I just love them! These pony skin Superga not only added a some texture and colour to the look, but also gave it that laid back feel I was after. What do you think guys?xxxx
