Need some weekend outfit inspiration?
How about try this favorite classic weekend outfit equation:
Denim + Stripes + Bomber Jacket + statement boots = Fresh & effortless!
So my love of nautical stripes has gone beyond obsession. Shamefully, I may have over 10 items of clothing that are navy & white striped inspired in all different variations of length of sleeves, fabric, texture, neck line cuts etc.. can you ever be over striped? A' HOY no. I just love the fresh look it brings.
Aje does a very nice spin on the nautical tee. You get the subtle stripes as they are further apart and a touch of dark bling on the branding for 'zhooshing' any outfit. Wear it over sized with denim for a relaxed look or tucked in to a high waisted mini for a glam evening out.
In this blog post I team up my Aje nautical T-shirt, with COS jeans, Alexander Wang boots and a khaki bomber jacket from French Connection.
I have acquired many compliments from this bomber jacket! I have found it to be the perfect shoulder warmer that goes with most of my wardrobe. This khaki number has certainly gotten a lot of mileage over winter and still going strong into the beginnings of spring, adding a touch of military style to break any black staples and grunge up an outfit during the cooler evenings. It has been so popular that they have run out of the stores like hotcakes, but never fear I have spotted a similar version at TOPSHOP recently!
Moving down to jeans, here is a HOT TIP.....
COS is a fab store for classic cuts and basics. I got these slim fit, mid waist, cropped cut denims from COS for under $100. Say what?! Yes, they are affordable and super comfy and most importantly....simple with no obvious branding. I love my ACNE and JBrands etc.. but on a dancers wage you've got to be savvy on the cashola if you are a jean freak like me!
These WANG boots are my all time favorite statement boots! I have worn them with absolutely everything, from rocking up a pair of jeans or grunging up a Maticevski skirt at Fashion week! The architectural hardware heel details are a hero to any outfit!
Happy weekend readers!
