That is the question. Well for me there is no question, I love a two piece / coord ensemble hanging around in my wardrobe, especially when it’s so versatile. A great item to take you from day to night too, and that’s exactly how I wore it when I was in Barcelona last week as you may know from my insta stories.
I have posted about the jacket before (here), and mentioned the number of different ways that I’d get my wear out of it and this was one of them!
As it’s quite busy, I’d only wear it with something plain, a grey or black tee, a white shirt, or a cream knit (this is a knit vest I bought for a trip to Ibiza years ago but similar is available here – that said any knit will look great, even a turtle neck!). Or, as mentioned in my previous blog, I’d wear the jacket done up without anything underneath or an evening look. for an on-trend “out out” option.
I do love mixing in a knit with something more formal as it brings it that rule of opposites to give an outfit a bit more of an edge, then I tied the colours together and mix in additional textures I opted for these Topshop lace ups (old, but similar available here) and this Zara hide clutch bag (available here).
