Styling the Zara summer check jacket

Craig shows us what he wore today, wearing a summer check jacket by Zara and shoes from Deichman

With just a white shirt and jeans, it’s possible to still stand out from the crowd by making sure that your jacket and shoes make a statement. It’d be so easy to just throw on a sweater, but why not add a little more of a dapper edge and go for a cool summer blazer and a great pair of shoes? 

As soon as I saw this houndstooth blazer from Zara I had to have it. Half lined, it’s a great jacket for summer and the red, white and blue check is not only fantastically patriotic but also makes a bit of a statement. View Post

The Zara short sleeved summer shirt

Craig shows us what he wore today, including a new summer short sleeved shirt from Zara

As the temperatures rise it’s time for the short sleeved shirt to make its return. With so many available in stores and online, there’s a great selection to choose from. Today I want to show you my latest purchase from Zara.

What I Wore Today #40 – Autumnal Shades

Craig of That Dapper Chap shows us what he wore today, taking inspiration from the changing autumnal landscape and showing off his new boots from Chatham Footwear

Autumn is well and truly here, the leaves have turned a mixture of stunning ochres and deep reds, the nights have got darker and colder and it’s time to pull out your winter coat.

I bought this coat last autumn from Zara while on a trip to London. It’s still great for this year with its slim fit and classic military shape. As often with Zara they added a twist to this classic, and used a very contemporary fabric, making it stand out from other coats on the high street. Unfortunately it isn’t available this year but there is an equivalent in a large black and grey check. It’s also available in a blazer too, and it’s something I’ve added to my Christmas list.

Think of layering I chose a floral shirt with a very autumnal colour scheme and wore this under a cardigan with hues of burnt umber. The tie is vintage and helps to bring the colour scheme together while making a bit of a statement against the floral shirt.

Footwear has to be substantial at this time of year so I opted for these beauties. These are the ‘Stornoway’ tan leather and tweed boots from Chatham. I recently listed my top five pairs of shoes and boots from Chatham and these were number one in my list. See the article HERE
