Fashion Me Now | Tailored Staple - 02

Forget Camel, grey and pinstripe, nothing makes you feel as pulled together as a classic, black crombie coat.

Despite being such a staple, it’s weirdly the one kind of coat my wardrobe’s been lacking for a few years. So when Armani Exchange invited me to be an ambassador for its #NewJacket campaign, I tore myself away from the camel coats and biker jackets (I think I just about have enough of those for now) and pumped for this tailored, longline coat instead. And it’s quickly proving itself as one of those pieces that makes you wonder what you did before it…

I’m one of those people that likes to focus one one or two key items and strip everything else back to a serious nondescript level. This is especially true when it comes to wearing the most statement-y footwear currently lining my hallway. Thigh-high boots from Russell & Bromley and Stella’s patent, rubber, flatforms can feel quite ‘LOOK AT ME’ if they’re not pared down with a whole lot of black and neutrals. And now its getting a little too chilly for a biker jacket, this new black coat is filling that ‘goes with everything’ hole.

Armani Exchange are inviting others to get involved with the campaign. When you buy a new coat or jacket this season, post a picture on instagram with the hashtags #NewJacket #ArmaniExchangeUK (it doesn’t need to be an Armani Exchange coat) and A|X will be selecting ten winners who’ll receive a jacket of their choice from A|X’s new season collection. Time to find that perfect selfie mirror….

    This is going to sound like such a silly question but have you managed to “wear in” your Stella’s Lucy? I have a pair similar and just cannot bare the pain. I know you mentioned they hurt in a past post so was just wondering if you had any tricks?
    Absolutely love your blog and your wonderfully varied posts. One of very few bloggers who seems utterly unpretentious and down to earth! xx

    • Hi Emily,

      Firstly, thanks for your lovely comment – so glad you like how varied/random my posts are!

      And yes, these shoes are killer aren’t there… I think my problem was because they were too big, I stuffed insoles in them which made them blister my feet like nothing else. Now I wear them without insoles so they’re pretty loose and aren’t tight to my feet like you’d usually want a loafer or brogue… Hope this make sense! Although I will say, twisting your ankle is a bit of a problem with this technique!

      Good luck xx
