Hello you beauties, some of you may have seen me post this on instagram last week, I've been lusting after the River Island Tartan Coat for quite some time now. It is however £85 and having a print on a coat I feel can be a little restricting on what you can wear with it. What If I want to wear some tartan trousers and I've already splurged £85 on a coat which will look silly paired together. Basically I've taken and old coat and a shirt to recreate a similar style jacket:
|You will need an old coat/leather jacket.|
|An oversized shirt|
|Faux Fur Stole|
All you need to do ladies is simply cut off the sleeves of you shirt! If you want a more finished look you may want to stitch the edges
Now you have a sleevless shirt which you can pair with many coats and the fur stole covers up any mismatching edges at the front of the coat/shirt. I've created a little video to show you a few examples:
(apologies for the fuzzy section, something is wrong with my video editor at the moment!)
So it's not as incredible as the River Island one, I am aware of this but it is a pretty good alternative. I'm sure plenty of you have a leather jacket you can throw a shirt over!
