PINSTRIPE SUIT

A navy pinstripe power suit is a LOOK! I’ve always adored a tailored female suit and this ASOS Design navy pinstripe 2-piece suit certainly commands attention. The oversized pinstripe blazer is a unique extended length and the waist belt wraps around twice to cinch in the waist, creating a feminine waistline. The trousers are the perfect length; having long legs is a blessing but a curse when trying to find trousers long enough. These trousers brush my ankle lengthening the leg. I styled the suit with ASOS patent beige heels with ankle-tie. The wide lapel and pocket details makes the suit.

THE CUTEST BUCKET HAT

This cream faux-fur jacket and cream ASOS faux-fur bucket hat are a dream match. The H&M cream jacket is incredibly thick, and the cropped arm length is super cute. The jacket has no collar, which is a unique style feature, I normally dislike no collar on a coat/jacket, but here it works. The jacket is only £34.99; however, it looks and feels much more luxurious. The concealed hook and eye fastening is an elegant feature. The ASOS bucket hat is so darling, I love the current bucket hat trend! Paired together the jacket and hat combo calls for a chilly winter day; which is a daily occurrence in the UK. I wore dotty tights, a velvet mini-skirt and thigh-high leather boots with the faux-fur pieces. I finalised the look with a genuine Burberry silk scarf; the beige and black tones tied the whole look together. A faux-fur moment!
