Evening all! This week I’ve decided to base the Sitting Pretty Styles feature around the Barbour jacket I got for my birthday back in September. Since I got it a few people have said they would be interested in seeing how I’d style it. I haven’t really had the chance to feature it in an outfit post yet, so I thought this would be the next best thing. Rather than doing a casual and a formal look (I wouldn’t personally wear a Barbour jacket on a night out or to a meal, but each to their own!) I’ve done an every day look, then more of a relaxed outfit to put it more to its use.
THE BARBOUR JACKET – LOOK ONE
This outfit is more of a traditional way to wear the Barbour jacket, think countryside walks, camping and rainy days but done in style! Not a lilac cagoule or hiking boots in sight! I’d wear some skinny fit jeans tucked into leggings, teamed with a chunky jumper over a longline camisole or vest. I’d then accessorise with a faux fur hat, sheepskin mittens and a vintage style scarf. I’d also carry a chunky brown bag!
THE BARBOUR JACKET – LOOK TWO
For the second look I’ve come up with a more relevant way of wearing the Barbour. It now seems to be bought more for the fashion element that the practicality, so this version shows how to wear it in a more style focused outfit. This is how I tend to wear mine too! I usually go for a pretty vintage inspired dress over some thick tights teamed with boots. I’d also snuggle up with some chinky knitted accessories such as a hat and long scarf, and carry a satchel style bag in a complementing colour. To finish off I’d add a splash more colour with a bright lipstick.
Well? What do you think?! Let me know how you’re all wearing your quilted jackets this winter. I’d love to hear how you style them!
