Spring layering sleeveless jacket

It is that time of year when it is in between seasons. I have not yet unpacked my lighter summer wardrobe from their winter resting pace in our garage. It can be sunny one minute then raining and windy the next. Layers are the answer. So this very flattering navy boiled wool sleeveless top by Hopefashion is just the job. I can wear it now over my navy roll neck sweater (similar) and when the weather finally turns warmer team it with a cream or white top or T-shirt.

Do we consider some brands too young

I had always considered Topshop to be more suitable for the young and lithe than us more mature women. I think I might have been wrong.

I had a good internet browse the other day and to my surprise found several items that I liked very much. So in the spirit of exploration and trying new looks out on your behalf I ordered a couple of coats that I consider would suit any age.

I am wearing the Topshop pink coat (Can’t believe this is also now sold out. They do have similar styles in a brighter pink). I also found one at Boden. I am wearing it with my Winserlondon cream sweater from last season similar (reduced) and Winserlondon straight black trousers. Grey felt hat some years old similar at Nordstrom and John Lewis.

How I work the oversize look

How I work the oversize look. What do you think of the oversize trend? Definitely for the tall and well built amongst us. Also a bit 80s with the large shoulders. According to the current autumn 2017 runway shows we will seeing much more of this silhouette for autumn. Maybe we need to get our eye accustomed to the changing “look” after so many seasons of skinny jeans and leggings.

I thought I would experiment with the new silhouette. This oversize mac is from Topshop. They offer a good range of similar styles . Teamed with my NYDJ jeans at JDWilliams and Nordstrom. Plus my Stan Smiths for a relaxed look.
