Jigsaw: My take on tailoring

Denim jacket and shirt: J Crew. Flannel trousers: Jigsaw. Trainers: Adidas
We know tailoring is a big deal (see my A/W Trends list here), but how to wear it now? Yes, you can wear a full suit but I like to deconstruct the pieces and wear it my way. Tailoring and trainers is a big yes in my book and I always like anything that can work well with a shirt. The key to the new shirt style? Try not to roll up the sleeves, let your sleeves peek out from under your jacket for a grungey take on the look...

Trousers: Jigsaw. Clutch: Baukjen
Tailoring is not just for work - I love a tailored look for the weekend, too. Especially now the cold weather seems to be kicking in...

3. Faux pony-skin bag, £49, Atterley Road

4. 'Hayden' jeans, £42, Topshop

5. Cashmere jumper, £140, Iris + Ink at The Outnet

6. 'Whistable' watch, £115, Shore Projects

7. Cable knit socks, £4, Gap

8. Leather monk shoes, £65, Office

...and here's a little video of my outfit (just for fun!) - follow my YouTube videos here (it's all pretty new to me).


  1. I love the tailoring trend, it looks great dressed down. I bought the black Asos trousers you blogged about and they are fab, perfect fit, thank you! X

    1. So glad - love those so much - can't believe we're bringing out the trousers already, though!

  2. I love this too, gives me the chance to wear some tailored pieces a bit more casually, that wouldn't get worn so often otherwise.

    1. Exactly, we always wear tailoring to work and jeans on the weekend - good to mix it up!
