As per my last blog post, it is time to up the level of my content on Instagram and my blog to another level and one way to achieve that is to be more risky with my styling. I've also shot in a new location with a new photographer, keeping things fresh and interesting. If you follow me on Instagram, in the future I'm going to try to add more lifestyle content rather than just fashion. I want to show my fun side and that not everything is as perfect as my Instagram life. I have ups and downs like everyone and sometimes with Instagram and blogging it is hard to portray anything other than perfect, which I'm far from. I want to post more in the moment type of posts and write about everyday events in my life.
In trying to be a little more risky with my styling, I've spent a lot more time researching exciting menswear brands that offer incredible statement pieces that you can style an outfit around. And with London Fashion Week Men's around the corner, it is time to start thinking about outfits to wear. I'm so glad that I've found Natural Selection as their SS17 collection is incredible, full of lightweight jackets, floral tropical shirts and a whole load of khaki, off-white and navy pieces.
This jacket is a statement piece of clothing that I will have in my wardrobe for years to come as something I'll bring out on special events. I wouldn't say it is an everyday jacket, it's way to special for that! The jacket is a bold indigo colour, collarless and slim slim fitting. It's cut from Italian jacquard denim and the pattern is designed to resemble an atlas and washed to a soft mid indigo finish.
I've also styled this outfit with a piece of men's jewellery, something that is quite new for my style but I adore this long length, arrow chain finished in ruthenium (also available in silver & gold), made by a new, exciting men's jewellery brand Alex Orso.
So if you like what I have done with this styling, it would be great if you could let me know what you think or how you would improve on what I have styled here. Of course, as always - if you like it, shop it below.
