1 Jacket, 3 Ways

Styling three ways is always a tough cookie because I am, unashamedly, a creature of habit and tend to inch slowly towards my black jeans every time, hoping that no one will notice. However, this H&M badboy turned out to be quite easy to do three ways because it's so versatile. Ha-lle-Lu-jah. It's nice and tailored which, being at the petitest end of the petite scale (a depressing admission), I always look for because I find it stops you looking like you're drowning under a mountain of material. Grey was a good colour for me too because it goes with everything, including my favourite 'colour', um, black. So, without further  ado, here are the three looks (if you want to insert your own drumroll here you're very welcome to).

For the first look, yes, ok, I went for jeans but it's the ONLY TIME, OK. I popped a faux fur collar on over the jacket, which I always find is an easy way to transform a jacket or coat/make it instantly warmer - and dug my good old thigh high boots out the wardrobe to finish the outfit off with because, let's face it, Autumn is well and truly here.

The second look I'm trying hard not to title 'Fifty Shades of Grey' but the urge is there and it's very, very strong. I picked up this dress in H&M a few months back in both grey and black - if it ain't broke, buy it twice.. I think that's how that phrase goes, anyway -  and although I'd normally wear it quite dressed up I thought I'd go for a more casual look this time, pairing it and the jacket with my favourite Senso glittery boots and a slouchy bag.

The thigh high boots make a return for look number three but the jeans don't ('thank god!', I hear you sigh). There's always a risk of looking a bit Pretty Woman-esque when pairing thigh highs with a leather mini, so I went to the entire opposite end of the scale on my top half with a prim and proper polo neck and, of course, the jacket layered over the top.

 So there we have it, three different looks, one jacket (and only one involving jeans - a cause for celebration if I ever heard one). Let me know which one's your favourite if there's a particular one that tickles your pickle, but try and do it out of earshot of the other outfits because I don't want them to get offended. If you're on the lookout for a new coat or jacket before Jack Frost hits I couldn't recommend H&M more; I've had a little preview of some of the A/W goodies coming in and there's some absolute bangers in there.
Yes I said bangers.

I absolutely love that jacket and all three looks. I'm going back and forth between the 2nd and 3rd ones for my fav. I hope that jacket is still available! It's so perfect for fall and all my jackets are black because, like you, it's my favorite "color." ;)

Totally feeling all three looks - each has a USP! the fluffy scarf/dead thing ;) / the beautiful draped dress and the quilted mini skirt are gorge! And the jacket is lush of course x


Unknown said...

I think I'd have to fall in line with everyone else and admit that amazing green fur stole...well...stole the show. Absolutely no pun intended.
