Modern Classics with Thomas Sabo

Jumper: Uniqlo U
Trousers: Zara
Watch: c/o Thomas Sabo
Rings: c/o Thomas Sabo 

As I've gotten older my appreciation for quality over quantity has grown too, in all aspects of life. At the age of 27 I've come to surround myself with a few wonderful friends rather than lots of average ones, I've realised that one bottle of exceptionally good wine is better than lots of whatever's cheapest in Tesco (that, and I can no longer handle the hangovers) and when it comes to buying new pieces for my wardrobe I only go for those that I know are going to last and I'll love for years to come. 

This view may come from working in luxury fashion where I can see first-hand the value of buying into quality pieces rather than the throwaway fashion that increasingly dominates the British high street, or it may come from a desire to consume less and appreciate more. Either way, it's the modern, versatile classics that I'm drawn to again and again and the same applies to jewellery. 

That's why the Thomas Sabo collection of stainless steel and silver watches and jewellery appeals to me so much. Clean, classic pieces that I know I can wear with oversized knitwear (like here), with an LBD come Christmas party season or with tailoring when I need to feel smart. I teamed up with the brand to pick some of my favourite pieces, with this men's watch from the Spirit Watches collection and these layered, chunky silver rings crying out to me most.  

I love how big the size of this watch face is without being too bulky, while mixing the larger ring with a slightly more delicate one (this particular style is from the Together by Thomas Sabo collection – look closely as you’ll see it says ‘Together Forever’...perfect for an extra special Christmas gift) is a nice balance of masculine meets feminine style (my favourite).

The New Camel Coat

Coat: Mango (sold out, similar here)
Bag: Zara (similar)
Jeans: ASOS
Trainers: Vans

I tend to buy a new camel coat pretty much every winter because, well, you can't beat it. This season though I've gone for something a little bit different with this oatmeal-coloured one from Mango (wild, right?) It's part of the brand's Committed Collection, which if you haven't looked at already, I urge you to immediately. It's full of masculine shapes, oversized beauties like this coat, and the quality is next level. Plus with 30% off for Black Friday, you really can't go wrong (thank me later).

Styling All Black for Winter

Coat: & Other Stories (similar)
Necklace: c/o A Weathered Penny
Top: COS
Trousers: COS
Boots: Dr Martens 

Another week, another all-black outfit. This kind of look is pretty much my 'uniform': long lines, dark colours and a hint of masculine style, and you'll find me wearing a variation of this most days of the week. I do need something to break up the black though, which is where this necklace from A Weathered Penny comes in. It's simple (like the majority of my jewellery) but the delicateness of it adds a little bit of femininity and a touch of colour.
