No idea why I haven't blogged about this jacket sooner! Or even why I haven't worn it with these trousers sooner! When I think of some answers I'll let you know. This isn't a current season Topshop jacket, but I feel for all the monochrome seen in store recently it would sit perfectly in their AW14 collection. The stark cross stitching all over the jacket gives such a luxurious detailed finish to the fabric, and the oversized fit is a style I could wear all day every day. I thought I might get bored of the pattern but it seems to fit with anything - although I guess loving to wear monochrome just about every day helps with that! I love the graphic crosses sat next to the mottled acid wash of the raglan tee underneath. I love print on print like this, they feel almost like part of the same collection even though the differing brands clearly show they're not! *thinks of print collections and realises I should be doing something with my degree!* #postunilifecrisis
I finished off the look with simple silver accessories. The necklace is from Pandora, which I got on my 21st birthday. I was always so anti-Pandora thinking all they did was cutesy animal and heart charms so was surprised to find this rhodium silver geometric charm. To me it didn't seem to fit in with the brand, but I guess that's why I liked it so much! The chain of the necklace itself is also rhodium silver and I like that it can be worn as a long necklace or twist round twice for a shorter piece depending on what suits your particular outfit. I also quickly need to mention about the chunky ring from & Other Stories! This, as well as the rest of their jewellery collection, is just so completely and utterly gorgeous! The minimalist style in differing shapes and textures makes the finished pieces look so much more expensive than their price tag (although they still turn my fingers green!) and I just love love loveee them all!
What do you think of this jacket and the rest of this monochrome look? Have you come across & Other Stories jewellery? Let me know in the comments!
