Fashion Blogger Styling Black Tuxedo JacketGrowing up, I remember teasing my mum about the sheer volume of jackets and coats she'd amassed.  Well, the jokes on me because I can barely breathe these days underneath my pile of jackets!  No complaints here though, and especially not when it comes to the dilemma of transitional styling.  I'm trying to think ahead right now for the sake of March, by finding ways to bridge the gap between Winter and Summer styling.  My favourite realisation so far?  Tuxedo Jackets are (still) pretty amazing.

Handmade Velvet Embellished Black ChokerI have a big fat issue with dressing separately for day and night, and by this I mean I love bringing elements of 'night dressing' into daytime.  Needless to say, tuxedo jackets totally play into this.  Add a pair of statement earrings and heels, but then tone it down with a casual printed/graphic tee and you've successfully blurred the line!  The umbrella seen in this post is another head-turning accessory that playfully refreshes a tuxedo jacket and I love it.  Designed by Lulu Guinness for Fulton, it features a lightweight frame and recognisable Lulu Guinness branding - which I matched with a DIY velvet choker (anyone else addicted to making chokers?!).

With love,
