Style Theory: Tailoring was featured heavily on the A/W14 catwalks. Suits in fluid fabrics, tailored trousers and jackets dressed down with black/grey t-shirts or cashmere jumpers. This season, it is all about mixing tailoring with casual to create a laidback but sophisticated look...
Here are a few ideas how work the tailored look:
|Tomato red is a huge colour this season, throw a tailored coat over your shoulders when wearing a dress for a structured look.|
|Trousers look great with a simple white tee|
|Adore this Zara jumpsuit, works just as well with heels as it does with converse.|
|A white blazer, a tailored, timeless classic.|
|A smart jacket looks great with leather shorts or skirt.|
|Just adore everything about this J Crew look, the shorts, the jacket, the jumper..perfection.|
|So elegant with a white blouse.|
Now for the best on the high street:
|Asos Peg Leg Trousers now £21|
These are the trousers I am wearing below as recommended by Alex from The Frugality, she wears them beautifully dressed down with trainers or sliders, adds a cool edge. They do come up large so size down.
|Mango Soft Tailored Jogger £34.99|
I have been looking for a tailored jogger that I can wear with heels, these Mango ones look perfect, wear with statement heels in the evening and a grey t and tailored black jacket, comfort and style!
|Asos Cigarette Trousers in Crepe £28|
Cigarette trousers always look sophisticated and these are crepe so would hang well and such a good price.
|J Crew Collection Wool Shorts £138|
Adore, adore these shorts.....
|Zara Fitted Blazer with Pleated Sleeves £69.99|
|Zara Blazer with gathered sleeves £49.99|
These Zara blazers are great basics, wear with boyfriend jeans, a breton top and heels for a laid back going out look.
|Topshop PU Asymmetric Skort £36|
These skorts would look great with a long camel coat, black tee and flat pointed shoes.
|Zara Trousers £29.99|
|Zara Epaulette Top £39.99|
These tailored trousers and top really caught my eye in Zara, the colour is beautiful and a with a pair of nude pointed courts create a very 'put together' outfit.
|Zara Button Jumpsuit £79.99|
|Me trying on the jumpsuit, love but will have to wait until next month to buy fingers crossed it doesn't sell out!|
Having lived in jeans for the past 7 years it is so nice to get back into trousers, they are surprisingly comfortable in comparison to my normal thigh-squeezing skinnies and can be dressed down so easily. This is a dressed up look, I be wearing these trousers dressed down for the schoolrun, follow me on Instagram @schoolrunmum for daily outfit ideas....
|Blue Coat: M&S|
I am officially converted to a slightly more tailored look, not sure how long it will last before I am back to my sloppy best! Are you swapping your weekend jeans for trousers?
As always I would love to hear your thoughts and comments, until next time, Frances xx
