I feel like I haven’t posted outfit snaps in ages, but it’s because I was waiting to get these ones done! I’ve teamed up with Jigsaw for this one as part of their Lived Not Modelled campaign and it’s one I can totally get behind. The concept is that the clothes are actually wearable, not viewed on a model or a catwalk, but something that is part of every day life. I, of course, am totally behind this. As someone who needs clothes to be functional yet stylish, comfortable but classic, I always shop with a longer term goal in mind and rarely buy something I will only wear for a season. So, the clothes I pick out have to last, fit properly and have to be, as the campaign suggests, lived in.
After trying out these Jigsaw pieces and looking through their website, I can see how the brand really takes this concept on board. I always thought Jigsaw were a brand for the professional woman who needed smarter wear for work or drinks after the office, but their collection is full of pieces that totally capture my style. Everything is a bit minimal, structured or well tailored, using beautiful fabrics with a range of wardrobe staples to one off must-haves. I can 100% see myself going back to Jigsaw – they have trousers and blazers that I am obsessed with!
I decided to style this jacket and top two ways; one to show how it could look with heeled boots and a skirt in a more ‘dressed up’ kinda way and one in a way I’d run around town doing errands in. The top is a great update for Spring and a lovely way of injecting some colour into a wardrobe, something I’m usually quite shy to do. The jacket is such a staple and would look great with absolutely everything, from trousers at the office to a dress in Spring, trainers to heels – it would work so well in every wardrobe. I think everyone needs a good pair of plain white trainers, so these leather ones are the perfect way to add this classic style to your wardrobe – plus the leather means they’ll last way longer and be easier to clean off any scuffs, too.
Are there any pieces you’re after that fit the Lived Not Modelled bill?
