When I put together some of my best outfits, they always seem to mix trend led pieces with wardrobe staples. Shopping at Burton this week, I found this perfect winter walk outfit, warm, functional, comfortable and on-trend. My staple items which I'm now going to wear throughout the whole winter season are brown tan boots, stripe knitwear and skinny mid-wash jeans. The trend pieces are the khaki military jacket and diamond jacquard scarf all from Burton Menswear.
On a cold and very windy Sunday morning, just after sunrise, I headed out to London's St James Park to put this outfit to the test! I mean, I've already brought the clothes so it's a bit late to test them for myself - but I do this all for you, so you have every bit of information you require before purchasing.
Although I was a little cold and grumpy during this shoot, it was actually the perfect morning to shoot this outfit as it is a similar environment to the winter dog walks that I have to do on a daily basis. The skinny jeans, thankfully were not too skinny and I would say more slim fit rather than skinny, but I guess it just depends on the size of your thighs! Layering a white button-down shirt with the Burton cream/grey knitted jumper and finally the khaki military jacket kept me warm. This military jacket is now my favourite 'walking my dog jacket', as it is important to have lots of pockets - phone, poo bags, treats, tennis ball (not that Charlie is good at fetch), keys and some change for coffee. Finally I have accessorised with a grey diamond jacquard scarf and Walker Slater tweed lined hip flask.
Since wearing this outfit, I have done more research into the Burton Menswear offerings and have found that they have put together some awesome winter styled looks themselves of which you can view here.
