More AllSaints and ASOS in today’s look – I like to keep you guys on your toes. Real edge of your seat stuff, this is. I would apologise but I can’t help the fact that everything I could possibly need from a wardrobe can be found from a handful of retailers. I do like to branch out sometimes, I promise – I’ll do the next outfit post with no ASOS or AllSaints in whatsoever. No, scratch that, all of my jeans are one or the other – could do it in my boxers, I suppose…
Maybe not. Regardless, today’s post is a celebration of the best of ASOS. I spotted a frosted-grey, acid-wash denim jacket hung up in my wardrobe, between folds of black leather and thick flannel, and genuinely couldn’t remember the last time I’d seen it, let alone worn it. I remember picking it up in an ASOS clearance for maybe £18, and then it getting lost and seemingly only recently resurfacing. Anyways, I’m glad I did see it, because this jacket is so great; it comes slim-fitting at the waist, and it’s surprisingly warm, making it appropriate outerwear for the next couple of months – though, I wouldn’t wear it past November, it’s not that warm. What I love most about the denim is how worn-in it looks; the acid-wash of the grey has left it with a cold finish. To complement the jacket, I paired it with a black-and-white Breton stripe t-shirt by AllSaints. The icy hues in the top half of the look required obsidian contrast to couple with; black skinnies were, of course, the first port of call, and my well-worn leather monk-strap shoes by Religion seemed most suitable to finish the look. The way I’ve styled the jacket in this outfit is probably about the most versatile way I can think to do so – it could be worn in autumn as easily as it could in spring. Layering the look up for winter wouldn’t be too difficult or expensive either; a plain smoke-grey jumper over the t-shirt would look great, as would a thick black scarf.

This is definitely a look I’ll be wearing more often, now that I’ve rediscovered the denim jacket. Hope you enjoyed the read, and the photos – this is the last time the red brick wall is going to make an appearance on your screens (until I go home at Christmas). I know you’ll be shedding a tear or two. I’m going to find a couple of locations in York over the next few days, and try to find a photographer, so outfit posts may be scarce until I do. However, the next post featuring a handful of budget picks will be going up this weekend, so look out for that. Get excited. Or don’t, it’s not that exciting.
Please do leave a comment (here, or on Instagram) letting me know your thoughts on the look, and how you’d style this yourself. Cheers.
