The Topshop Borg Denim Jacket Outfit
This outfit here somewhat became my uniform during the Autumn for running errands and just popping out. Those of you who follow me on Instagram (@LornaRaindrops) will know that I was debating over purchasing this denim jacket from Topshop for a while because I wasn’t sure if I liked it, but every time I saw it, I loved it even more. When I tried it on, I was head over heels in love with it, so I was sold on keeping it and it turned out to be one of the best things I did.
Not everyone loves it though, in fact it was pretty 50/50 when I put the polls up because of the borg design, but I can’t get enough of it, and still love it so much now. Since it’s designed to fit a bit boxy and oversized, I went with a UK 8 to keep that look, and I am glad I did because it means I can wear it with thicker knitwear underneath too, if I so wish. I was worried that it did make me look disproportionate and would overwhelm me with so much material, but much like my teddy coats, once you get the proportions right with the rest of your clothes, it looks fantastic.
So my outfit here is the Topshop Borg Denim Jacket (click here as it’s on sale right now) which I styled with my Topshop Cropped Grey Jumper, and then finished it off with my PAIGE Margot Skinny Jeans, as they’re a similar blue wash. If you prefer a different borg on the denim jacket though, there’s another option that the brand has as there’s two versions (click here for the other one). When it comes to double denim though, I usually only wear two completely separate pieces in different washes, so the fact that I’m doubling up on the same mid blue is a turnout for the books, ha ha, but for me, the reason I did it and avoided the Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears fiasco of 2001, is because the cream borg detailing really makes it unique and different. I don’t think you could overdo the denim with a denim jacket like this as it’s such a wonderful combo, plus, having some skin on show from the cropped top just tones it down even more.
Now again, as I wanted this look to be fully about the double denim combination, I didn’t want to include any footwear as it would detract from the vibe I was going for. For those of you interested though, I’ve just been wearing this ensemble with either my Fila Disruptor Trainers or some different Chelsea boots as it can be dressed up or down. I’ve got a grey pair of Nike’s that I use too and they often match the grey knitwear underneath. It’s an extremely versatile combination though and I can even see it looking good with heels too no doubt. Now, be completely 100% honest, do you like the denim borg jacket and the outfit, or is it not to your tastes? Lorna xx.
