How to style the smart jacket

If you've been reading my blog for a while, you will know that I love the classic and timeless look. Part of my style is to incorporate a smart jacket or blazer with whatever I'm wearing - from jeans to dresses. I love the smart look, even at weekends and I have several jackets in different colours to complete my outfit.

The red jacket

Red is one of my favourite colours and when I saw this jacket I had to get it. I was at first hesitant as red can be a risky colour, but after pairing it with jeans and then a few of my other outfits, I knew this would be one of those jackets that I would continuously reach for. What makes it interesting is that it has no buttons on it, but the way it sits is so flattering as it acts as a nice item to finish your look.

Colourful shirt

I don't usually wear too many shirts or tops but recently I've been into trying some new tops. The one I'm wearing in this outfit is from ASOS and I love the print. I decided to wear this under the red jacket as it compliments it really well and makes all of the colours pop.

Skinny jeans

Skinny jeans are my all time favourite. They are comfortable, flattering and best of all they can be worn in both the day and night. This pair are from H&M and they have a slightly distressed look with some subtle rips in them.

Black heels 

These black heels from New Look are flattering, elegant and best of all make me look so much taller! As a petite lady, I find that a pair of heels with skinny jeans instantly makes my legs look longer. Heels are also smart and with this smart jacket I couldn't find a better fit.


As always, the key to any outfit for me is the accessories. Here I'm wearing my Valentino sunglasses and my DKNY handbag. It's all about the accessories and adding your own personal touch to complete your outfit.
