Men's Cream Bomber Jacket | Men's Style Edit

This week I've taken my own advice and spring cleaned my life, winter coats have been either packed away or taken to the charity shop. This cleanse was immediately followed by a heightened need to fill those newly free coat hangers. Winter coats are perfectly replaced by lightweight bomber jackets in every colour for the spring/summer season. 

Since I've already got a navy, grey, black and green bomber jacket the next logical choice was something a little lighter such as this cream one from ASOS. I've styled this men's style edit look casually with a pair of dark navy jeans, black trainers and a plain white t-shirt, all brought online via ASOS.

ONE JACKET STYLED TWO WAYS - CASUAL

As I mentioned in yesterdays blog, where I styled the same grey overcoat in a formal way - read it here. 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. Today I'm showing you how I styled this allsaints grey overcoat in a casual way. You might think that summer is the wrong time to be wearing an overcoat, however if you opt for light tonal colours and make sure the sleeve buttons have working cuffs, you can always roll the coat sleeves up making the look summer ready.

In this outfit of the day, I'm wearing from the bottom up. Cayler & Sons white with copper detail trainers which I brought via ASOS. Mid-blue wash ripped skinny jeans once again from ASOS. A plain white tee which I have no clue where I brought this one from as I have so many. The watch is from Paul Smith. And of course the overcoat jacket is from allsaints as I mentioned earlier.

CASUAL WORKWEAR WITH ASOS.COM

These days when dressing for work, it is much more than just putting on a crusty pair of trousers, an over worn white shirt and your only blue tie. You need to think about the type of work environment you are in, where your office location is, if you have any important meetings and the weather of course - as we are living in England! ASOS.com recently asked me to style 3 different workwear looks, a smart, a smart-casual and a casual look and the above look is a modified improved version of my casual look.

Firstly I have worn khaki cropped trousers with no socks and my brogue chukka boots which are the perfect combination. The top half, I have worn a slightly oversized white Granddad shirt done up to the top button, as I think these shirts don't look great undone. Paired with my DKNY Jean denim jacket which I have had since I was 18 and still in great shape (the jacket not me!). Keeping with the causal theme, I have chosen a military style backpack again from ASOS in a burgundy colour which classically goes well with the other dark tones in this outfit.
