Daily Street Style – Light Blue Shirt & Suede

street-style-24-october-2016-1

Hey guys!

For this street style type post I decided to wear one of my favourite suede jackets. It’s from JOFAMA a Swedish brand which does a lot of good work with leather jackets, and I picked this up a while back. If you read my blog a lot, you’ll have seen it before, I wear it a lot in Autumn and Spring when I can (when it doesn’t rain!) and as you’ll know from reading my suede jackets for Autumn guide, I really do love this type of leather. I love the detailing on this, especially the shoulders, biker style collar with button, and the zip details on the sleeves.

I paired it up with a light blue shirt, this one is from Santillo, a family ran Italian independent fashion label which has been in business for over 40 years. Italian shirts are well known for their high level of craftsmanship, and this one is no different. You really can feel the difference in the quality, and I love the fit too.

I am still loving my grey/off-white chinos, and as long as the weather holds up, this colour is fine to wear for all seasons. I like the way that the lighter colours of the chinos and shirt bring out the dark blue of the jacket. As for footwear I went for my black derby shoes from Kurt Geiger. They’re my most worn, and they probably need a bit more love and care, since they’re black I wear these most and are my go to shoes.

Check out more pics below and let me know what you think, and for more of this check out the street style blog 🙂

Suede Jackets For Autumn – This Season’s Trend

As you’ll have read in my Spring Suede Jackets guide, I love a good soft leather jacket. They’re not only perfect for Spring, but they’re a great style of jacket to wear in the Autumn too. As you’ll know, suede is a type of leather which has a napped finish, with lamb and goat most commonly used, with calf and even deer also being used. The jackets are usually pretty tough and thick, which means wearing one of these in the Autumn is a really good go to piece, with a lot of styles and colours now available. The enemy of suede is rain and water, although you can get suede protectors which will do a good job if you get caught out in the rain.

As with every piece of clothing, there’s plenty of choice at all different price-points. Typically with leather jackets, a genuine suede jacket will start at around £100, and from there goes upwards to whatever your wallet can afford! Grab a high street label such as Mango or Topman for under £150, premium high street brands such as Reiss or Ted Baker will come in at £200 – £400, and luxury and designer brands like Burberry and Tom Ford will run into the thousands.

A suede jacket can be looked at as a good investment, and should last you plenty of Autumn and mild Winters to come, providing you look after it well enough. They’re timeless, so you don’t have to worry about them going out of style, one to your wardrobe or expanding it with a different colour or style is something to consider.

Here’s over 30 of the best suede jackets for this season, from the high street and luxury brands, there’s something for everyone’s budget.

Jofama King Suede Jacket

Featuring:

jofama-king-suede-jacket-1

You may have already seen this jacket on my blog, I recently wore it on a night out and I really love it 😀 It’s from a Scandinavian brand which I’ve liked for a while, Jofama. I really love the style, and when I saw this jacket I had to get one.

I am becoming more and more of a fan of leather, and this is a suede jacket with a biker style to it. The racing collar is so cool, as are the silver steel zips throughout the jacket. The zips on the arms cover the genuine leather, and the quilted shoulder detailing is exquisite. I have quite a few jackets which are black or a very dark colour, and my other suede Jacket (from He By Mango) is a light camel colour. This jacket comes in a few colour options, but I wanted to get this dark navy colour because it’s slightly different to most colours I have in jackets, it will go with a lot of the fashion in my wardrobe, and it’s just a really nice colour.

The fit is a bomber length, and it’s cut quite close to the body, giving it a fashionable fitted look (as you’ve already seen!). A smart casual jacket which will stand out but blend in all at the same time, and it is a quality piece.
