Ah, spring has finally arrived and it’s time to put all winter coats back in storage and replace it with cool, lightweight jackets. Today, I am sharing one of the most important pieces in my wardrobe, the classic Barbour waxed jacket. I have been wearing Barbour jackets since I was a teenager and I still love it. It’s my go-to jacket for casual errand running jacket, quick trips to a grocery store on early weekend mornings. But I am not going to deny it, sometimes I also wear it to my business meetings. So it’s one of those rare pieces you own and feel completely comfortable wearing it, in no matter what mood you’re in.
This undeniable piece of classic British fashion, wearable in both the city and the country is the most versatile jackets around, and goes with anything. I love to combine it with jeans, skinny pants, leather boots or hunter boots (if it rains), and a knit sweater for a super relaxed casual look, or simply throw on whatever I have planned to wear for the day. Here I styled the waxed jacket with riding pants. Yes, riding pants are not just for riding only, they can be worn as everyday pants too. I love wearing these pants, when I am bored with wearing jeans. So, it’s a good contrast and they look great in combination with the masculine style jacket. To add a bit of a feminine touch, I accessorized it with a skinny leather belt, so that not only is a nice way to nip in the waistline of a oversized jacket, but it can also totally transform the look of the topper.
