A quick blog post to start off 2016…the optimum time to grab yourself a bargain lads!
At the beginning of December I was at Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park, wearing what I thought was a pretty casual set up of clothes. My mate took a picture of me and naturally it became my profile picture across social media…
…Since updating my profile picture, I’ve had lots of people ask me where I got a few of the items from, therefore, as a New Year ‘style it’, I thought I’d let you into a secret, my secret chaps…
It’s a relatively cheap and versatile outfit, suitable for many occasions, so here is a little insight (if you’re even bothered) to where and how to dress for these dark, depressing and freezing cold months at the start of the year.
Plus, you may get a ‘Brucie Bonus’ in the January sales by getting them even cheaper than I did!
Double Button Camel Coat: Primark £30.00
Burgundy Long Sleeve Polo Jumper: Primark £8.00
Black Extreme Stretch Cropped Skinny Jeans: ASOS £12.00
Camel Barbour Scarf: Debenhams £20.00
Burgundy Suede Chelsea Boots: H&M £25.00
Outfit cost total: £95.00
There’s my little cheat for you, if you’re looking for a similar look, whether it be for a smarter event or even a casual stroll around town, it’s well worth a look around!
By twining day-to-day brands with household favourites like ‘Barbour’ you can re-wear, recycle, and mix up your outfits.
Of course, ninety-five smackers for one outfit may seem a bit steep, but remember £30 of that is a coat (wear it whenever) and £25 boots, which are a nice alternative to leather shoes when heading into town on a Saturday night!
