How To Style The Wrap Jacket

Wrap jacket trend 2016

It’s a style that has been around forever, but has never been more on trend as it is now and the wrap trend is something I just love… throw it over your outfit and go!  

There are many variations of this jacket this season, from more structured styles in leather and suede that make for great investment pieces and are more suited for formal occasions, to more relaxed styles in cotton and denim which are perfect for casual daytime attire. Another variation is the knit or blanket style wrap jackets, which boasts an abundance of fabric and a boho chic vibe that instantly makes you feel more relaxed. 

Cinch oversized styles effortlessly at the waist to create a more dramatic silhouette that resonates with the overtly feminine look of the season.  Keep it pulled tight over a pencil slim skirt and fitted knit, a tailored dress and over the knee boots.

One of the current ways to wear the wrap tie coat is simply not to knot it at all! Leaving it undone allows people to see your ensemble beneath.  Take a cue from the coat, following its clean lines and solid colour; a monochromatic ensemble will always work well.

Mens Longline Tee Trend

Menswear’s latest design obsession: the longline cut.

I am a menswear designer, yet I never do any menswear blog posts. So today I thought I would start by doing a post on men's longline tees.  
The longline has introduced a new, more relaxed silhouette. Inspired by street fashion and the hip hop scene, it has now become the must-have trend in men's fashion.  Longline only means an item that's longer than usual and I think a lot of men don't really understand how to wear it:  it's all a game of proportions.

A longline tee is the perfect way to introduce a fashion-forward twist to your downtime looks and is easier to style than you might think.  It helps elongate the torso and makes you look taller.

Easy to wear, the high-street has adopted this trend offering a number of different variations of the trend. Beginning as a new shape for t-shirt and shirts, the trend has been applied to jumpers, bomber jackets and blazers to give them a reinvention. Still wondering how to wear the trend?  

While this trend might not be for everyone, adding a longline piece to your wardrobe can freshen up your look and the subtle details will complement your overall outfit.  For the best effect, team with slim- or skinny-fit trousers and jeans, which will provide a nice contrast with your oversized top. 

A Zoo York longer length Tee is how you upgrade your wardrobe instantly. Show off this bold print design with hi-top sneakers and ripped jeans. Available here


Here are some street inspirational images that will make you want to wear a longline tee even more:
