When on the commute for work or meetings, a smart winter coat is an essential item for your wardrobe. You can’t really be rocking up in a presentable outfit layered with an inappropriate coat. First impressions really count so it is worth investing in a solid top layer which will win hearts without saying a word.
This weeks Style Off features 2 coats/jackets from Superdry‘s AW16 range. Carl & I battle it out to see who styled the Arc Bridge Coat and the Real Hero Suede Biker Jacket.
My initial instinct was to go with the white shirt combo but with it being winter, I decided to keep it on the warm front with my burgundy roll neck jumper from Next. I really wanted to showcase the double breast button layout on the coat, and with the buttons done up, I thought it would be a perfect opportunity to get the roll neck poppin' conveying a look of warmth and comfort.
I balanced the smart jacket with casual ripped denim and rustic boots from Topman.
Carl went for the following look:
Really feeling this look from carl, and the Chelsea boots from Debenhams really cements this outfit into the Style Off hall of fame in my eyes, especially with the accessories and hitman gloves.

Now I love a good challenge and this Real Hero Suede Biker Jacket got me on my toes, I can't lie!
When doing my research prior to the shoot, I was thinking hard about what I could wear with this awesome colour.
When you love an item which has an unusual colour, natural instinct is to think, what have I got that is the same as or a similar colour to this?
Instead of trying to find items to colour match, curate a subtle palette that will allow the new colour to pop!
I decided to create a white and grey canvas to let this real leather jacket splash out in vibrancy.
Carl went for the casual look also but I reck snagged it this week!
