STYLE ADVICE: How can I style my leather blazer to give it a modern spin?

Posted on: February 24, 2014

QUESTION: I have a leather jacket (black single breasted traditional blazer style) is this old fashioned or can it be worn somehow updated? Its a great throw on and quite warm on chilly days out.

ANSWER: I’m having real fashion envy hearing about your leather jacket. A great piece of leather is for a lifetime and of course it can be updated with a few modern pieces.

1. Jigsaw, Jeans now £44:– These straight leg jeans are great for balancing the proportions. They are much more forgiving than skinny jeans but have just as much style. Style with a slight wedge or chic ballet pumps.

2. Mint Velvet, Blouse £69:- A printed blouse will be great under your leather blazer. Tuck into jeans for a smarter to look or leave out for a casual day shopping:

3. Mint Velvet, Trousers £79:– Or why not let your trousers carry the print for a super modern look. The cropped fit will be great with the blazer, style with your favourite pumps:

4. H&M, Blouse £14.99:- This floaty ivory blouse will be gorgeous against the black leather and teamed with printed trousers. A loose top will soften the look for lunch with friends and more. SarahA x
