The weather is heating up and with Summer just round the corner I’m seeing at lot of the latest trend on Instagram & in magazine’s, yes I still read them! The trend I want to chat about is the Short Suit.  Short suits have came back on trend every decade dating as far back as my favorite, the 80’s. I wa an eighties child and loved it. The power ballads, the films – Top Gun, Dirty Dancing, Flashdance, the fashion – shoulder pads, stiletto heels.  It was the best.

Best get back to the post …….. Tailored shorts paired with a blazer is right up my street.  I love a classic look, chic and stylish.  Keeping it chic with a crisp white shirt for the office or a beautiful silk cami for nights out.

There’s some great choices on the online at the moment, I’m heading in to Glasgow this week so I will also be checking out the high street too.

 

Here are some of my favourites

Hey everyone,  I want to get back basics, wardrobe basics that is.  The staple pieces that I would advise you all to have in your wardrobe – if you don’t already.  Pieces that never go out of fashion, the classic, effortless just put together look that makes you look & feel super chic!

Kick starting this series off with the camel coat – It looks amazing with an all black outfit or even cream!  Worn with chunky knits in the chillier months is one of my favorite looks.

This coat comes in all different shapes and sizes, belted, double breasted, single breasted it really doesn’t matter.  It’s your personal preference and what suits your style.

After searching around I have found a few reasonably priced ones to share with you.  I really like the structure of this one from missguided and this double breasted one from River Island is on sale.  Currently I have this one for my day to day and my best purchase of 2017 was my Jaeger camel coat down from £400 to £100.  It was an absolute steal in the January sales last year.  Unfortunately I don’t have a photograph of me wearing it (yet!)

I’ve linked a few different options down below

If you don’t already have a camel coat and your on the look out for one, I hope this post helped a bit.
