Today I want to share a classic look with items that were a snip of their full price in the January sales, showing that you do not have to spend a fortune to look stylish, and can look good on a modest budget.

For a while I’d been looking for a navy cardigan with a jacket style collar rather than a shawl collar, but one that also had pockets. I’d looked everywhere and couldn’t find one. So when I saw this one at ASOS I had to have it.
In a plain, lighter weight knit, it’s exactly what I wanted and was at a great price. Unfortunately it seems I wasn’t the only one looking for a cardigan of this sort, as it’s now no longer available.
You can still recreate this look with a cardigan without a collar, or even with a shawl collar if you wanted too. Burton (ad) currently have one on sale at £22.50
The striped granddad collar shirt (ad) is by Hammond & Co at Debenhams. Originally at £45.00 it’s now available in store or online for just £22.50. It’ll work just as well with jeans or chinos and under a sweater or waistcoat, making it a versatile item for your new year looks. It’s also available in big & tall sizes.
Also from Hammond & Co at Debenhams are these navy checked ‘Ashmore’ trousers (ad). Available right now at just £22.50 down from 45.00. I really like the rust coloured check which makes them stand out a little more than a plain pair, helping to lift the outfit and add some personality.
Footwear comes in the form of these wonderfully heavy ‘Kingham’ navy brogues (ad). Again from Hammond & Co at Debenhams, they are quickly becoming a favourite. Still available in a number of sizes they are half price at £75.00
I hope you like the look that I’ve put together for you. What are your thoughts? Please feel free to leave me a comment below to let me know what you think.
