New Look recently asked me to get involved in their Man Crush Monday campaign and style up a, er, man in their new season range. Of course I obliged: I even decided to get a little bit style happy and put a his and hers collection together because the couple that dresses together, stays together. Or something like that. The bee-eff and I often co-ordinate outfits accidentally on purpose anyway so here’s what I came up with:
Green Cable Knit Crew Neck Jumper, £13.49 – I ADORE a good cable knit jumper and you know it. In fact, any jumper is good. I think men go one of two ways with knits in the winter: a) avoid like the plague – which is what often happens with E – or b) just rock that preppy Chuck Bass kinda look. Any Chuck Bass style inspo is good in my book and this one would also look amazing with a shirt and leggings. … On me.
Blue Denim Faded Straight Leg Jeans, £19.99 – Straight leg jeans need to be more of a thing. So classic and I assume comfortable with a New York City vibe about them.
Tan Lace Up Hi-Tops, £29.99 – And to finish the look off, I really like the whole polished lace-up hi-top look. Desert boot inspired footwear is my favourite on men and I’m forever trying to persuade the men in my life to ditch their trainers once in a while for these.
Black On Wednesday Crop Top, £9.99 – Need I say more? Mean Girls inspired slogan tee: always good for off-duty days.
Green Check Zip Front Mini Skirt, £19.99 – To co-ordinate with the mens’ look, I picked this super-cute green tartan skirt. It has sweet zip details for a tougher look and is so perfectly Clueless. I guess if you were super brave you could switch the tartan skirt out for a leather one and wear a matching turtleneck cable knit jumper in bottle green.
Black Leather Block Heel Chelsea Boots, £59.99 – And to complete this look, a chunky block heeled Chelsea boot takes you through any autumnal occasion with stylish ease.
