1960s Mini Dress | £60 | Available at our Brighton store
This gorgeous suit jacket is todays online find. The fabulously over-exaggerated lapels and pocket flaps are toned down with the muted dove grey colour, making this an understated classic rather than another OTT '70s suit jacket. Not saying we dont love the occasional wallpaper print here and there, but this piece is elegant in both fit and tailoring with the beauty being the simplicity. The jacket can be worn with anything, but our boys have been channelling an Italian Riviera style, pairing the jacket with a simple shirt and rolled up trousers with the ever essential polka dot silk scarf tucked nonchalantly in the top breast pocket. Bellissima!
