The Perfect Evening Jacket....and more...


Style Theory: A black, fitted, longline evening jacket, the perfect addition to your capsule wardrobe, can be thrown over skinny jeans and a shirt in the cooler summer evenings and worn with a dress, opaques and heels for a smarter evening look in Autumn.

I have a black jacket hole in my wardrobe which was filled when Gray and Osbourn sent me this longline jacket. It is the kind of coat that looks just as good with distressed boyfriend jeans as it does with tailored trousers, heels and a shirt. I styled it with leather skorts and a touch of denim for a dressed up/dressed down look. 

Jacket: Gray and Osbourn (Gifted)
Faux Leather Skorts: Zara
Denim Sleeveless Shirt: H&M
Shoes: Zara
Gray and Osbourn have some fabulous brands on their website, generally regarded as for the older lady there really are a few gems that would be fabulous for all ages this Autumn/Winter..including a beautiful pale blue coat (my current obsession!) Here are a selection of my favourite items:

Helene Berman Wool-Rich Coat £190
Oui Wool-Rich Pastel Coat £259
Esprit Mohair-Blend Jumper £55
Seasalt Stripe Organic Cotton Top £30
Gray and Osbourn Duffle Bag £110

There are a lot of fabulous and useful pieces in the collection from varied selection of brands, definitely worth a look
