Necessity is the mother of invention – this is how the belt of my ultra-sporty Nike tracksuit bottoms became a perfect companion to the pictured casual-chic outfit. Not only does the belt keeps pace with the belted blazer trend you can spot all over Instagram as soon as autumn comes around – it also adds a cool touch to the outfit. Instead of my usual go-to t-shirts that come with a high neckline I chose a slightly chicer top to wear underneath my beloved blazer. To bring it full circle I decided to put on my casual and ultra comfortable Veja trainers. These came in handy while exploring beautiful Kew Gardens in West London. It’s the city’s largest UNESCO World Heritage Site and the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of the big smoke. With over 50,000 living plants and several beautiful glasshouses there is a lot to do and see. Fancy a visit? Due to Covid, you will need to pre-book a time slot in advance.
Get creative and shop your closet before buying something new.
