Taste of Autumn 

Wool Overcoat - Noose & Monkey   Shirt - Calvin Klein   Belt - Calvin Klein   Jeans - ASOS   Shoes - ASOS   Watch - Daniel Wellington   Accessories - ASOS

We’re moving towards cold weather so this look is all about autumn, focusing on staying warm but still looking sophisticated. 

The wool overcoat is a new purchase of mine from ASOS branded by Noose & Monkey I particularly love the tailoring, it goes back to what I mentioned last week about what to look for in a good suit, a tailored jacket works in the same way; good quality material and solid lines, a classic which won’t go out of fashion quickly. I didn’t opt to get the jacket in black as i did not want to play this look safe, I wanted some of my personality to shine through. As I’ve always maintained fashion is about personality more than anything else, if you don’t feel comfortable you won’t feel confident.

I paired the jacket with a fresh white shirt, darks jeans and white trainers. I cannot stress anymore, if you’re looking to achieve the look of sophistication, white trainers only work if they are just that, white. The same goes for the shirt but we’ve mentioned that previously so we won’t go back into that.

The jacket isn’t the only new item this week the watch is too. The watch can be purchased from Daniel Wellingtons website (Use code ROWANROW for 15% discount)  and is definitely one of my favourite watches at the minute. Their watches come in two different strap styles, the NATO and the leather strap. The NATO strap seems to be a very popular choice, however I wanted something which was timeless, and suitable for any occasion. I opted for the brown leather strap with a rose gold face as for me it matches with the variety of other accessories I paired this look with, and many other of the looks I go for. 

So there we have it, autumn fashion begins with a strong statement jacket which screams class paired with natural accessories and of course sun glasses, everything looks better with glasses, and besides the morning sun hasn’t left us just yet.

Simple but significant 

   Suit - H&M   Shirt - Calvin Klein   Shoes - Base London Chief Derby Shoes   Watch - Emporio Armani Ceramica

Class is more than the clothes you wear, don't get me wrong your clothes help you feel a certain way, but most importantly it is the way you carry yourself.

I picked this classic suit combination to attend a friends wedding last weekend. I find the key to a classy suit is simplicity. There is nothing more attractive than a clean cut black and white tailored suit. As I've commented previously H&M have a great range of suits which have a great textures and cuts. I opted to pair this suit with similarly simple shoes. These were recently purchased from Asos, and compliment the outfit as a whole by adding a touch of elegance. 

However no matter which suit you wear, the most attractive feature is confidence. Confidence transforms any outfit instantly. There is no need to be flashy and bulshy, but carrying yourself in a strong manner makes all the difference. 

So my top tips to pulling of that classic elegant suit hanging in your wardrobe:
1. Clean - Every part needs to be pristine, in particular the shirt and shoes. You may think no will notice your shoes but they do, shoes bring the outfit together.
2. Grooming - its not just your suit that should be clean, you should be too.
3.Classic colours - No overly loud patterns and mix and match jacket and trousers. They make look the same shade of black but trust me there will be a difference! Always buy them in pairs.
And 4. the all important confidence.
