the sleeveless jacket

If there’s one item of clothing I’ve been well and truly lusting over this season, it’s the sleeveless jacket.

In every highstreet shop, they’re the ultimate layering item and having browsed more than enough, I decided the tailored ones were my preference. I picked this one up from New Look last week after trying on a couple. I gave button up ones a whirl but opted for a fasten-less style that was straight up and down with a lapel. I actually downsized by two sizes to get the fit I want on this and it still fits great over the back and on the arm holes. I didn’t want a whole load of excess material at the front, and wanted it to be form fitting and silhouette enhancing!

Deciding what to team it with for this post was tricky – it goes with so much! We all know I’m the queen of black skinnies, but I opted for a fittted ribbed roll neck which I think is the best accompaniment for a more tailored casual look. I’ve also worn it with an oversized neutral jumper and Converse for a really relaxed look.

As we’re having such a mild winter, it’s the perfect piece!
