Fashion is fast and expensive, so I'm forever trying to find ways to decrease the size of my wardrobe and buy pieces of clothing that can be styled in both a formal and causal way. The classic overcoat is one of those staple items of clothing that is so versatile and stylish that you could probably even wear it with shorts and it would look good! As you can see, this is the first way to style the jacket in smart formal attire. Pop back shortly for the casual style.
This light grey hue is an on-trend colour for this season and a perfect transition piece between seasons so if you purchase now, this jacket will survive through Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter...and on into 2017, thats if you don't leave it in a bar (which I'm always doing)!
This photoshoot was taken by Rebecca Spencer and after traipsing around the V&A museum we finally found the perfect place for this shoot, the surroundings were epic as you can see.
For this shoot, I purchased the light grey overcoat from AllSaints and styled it with items that I already had. The white button-down shirt, grey window-pane double breasted suit jacket and the brown double monk strap shoes are all from Hawkins & Shepherd. My watch is from Paul Smith, but you would have seen that before because I wear it all the time! Finally the dark wash jeans are from ASOS.
