All Saints Kit Biker Sweat Jacket with Grey J Brand Skinny Jeans
Time to start layering! That’s how I felt with this outfit on Saturday. It was cold enough to layer up and it was actually fun planning out what I was going to wear. I’m going to start with this All Saints Kit Biker Sweat Jacket as I bought this a couple of weeks ago from their website. It was a bit of a drama actually as I originally tried it in a UK 8, then a 6 and then a 4, and still the 4 was too loose in my arms and shoulders! They have done something with their sizing as they are now stocking a UK 2 which is a US 00 I believe and I’m fitting into that for this All Saints jacket and a leather one of theirs too when my usual size is a 6-8, so I had to send my originally choices back and get the 2, which seemed ridiculous, but it fits perfectly so I’m finally happy!
The Kit is made from a sweatshirt/jersey material, yet it has all the details of the classic All Saints cargo leather biker jacket, so it’s incredibly comfortable, soft and gorgeous! I can definitely see myself wearing this jacket all the time! I didn’t want to stretch out or misshape the sleeves on my biker jacket though, so instead of wearing a normal sweater, I chose my Bishop + Young Sleeveless Sweater to give the effect of knitwear, but without the sleeves so it fits me well still. It’s a great combination! For my jeans, I chose my J Brand Maria Skinny Jeans in Dove that you saw a couple of outfit posts ago. I’m addicted to the grey wash on these, it complements the grey of the sleeveless sweater nicely and it’s the perfect base for the biker jacket. I’m also glad the top is long enough to cover the back pockets on these J Brand jeans too. To keep with the monochrome theme of grey and black, I went with my Zara wedge boots that I’ve had for a couple of years now as they are really comfortable for walking and then finished it off with a subtle pop of colour with my pastel yellow 3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli Bag (similar here).
On a side note, I attended a really cool Ted & Muffy fashion bloggers event on Thursday and had an amazing time. I’m sure you have seen via my Snapchat and Instagram (@LornaRaindrops), but if you haven’t, I will have a post coming soon on the boots I chose and the store event. In the meantime though, what do you think of my outfit? I’d love for you to comment and let me know what you think of the All Saints Kit Jacket with the grey jeans and other pieces!
