Saving my step brother from a fashion faux pas

Saving my step brother from a fashion faux pas

I have a completely different post for you all today and it was a spur of the moment idea from my step brother Luke (super sass queen) – I was over at their house with Aaron on Saturday night catching up with my Dad and Step-Mum Fran when Luke was getting ready to head out for drinks and asked me if I could pick his outfit for the night because quote “Gab, you need to save me from having a fashion faux pas – that’s what your blog’s all about after all right?! HELP ME!!!!”
And how could I turn him down?! I was wondering what I was going to write for the coming week anyway and this seemed like it could potentially turn into a good series!
So I left Aaron downstairs with my Dad and headed on upstairs to have a gander at what Luke had to offer!

Luke wears a lot of tartan and I wanted to steer clear of something he wears ALL THE TIME and started to rummage through everything else he had on offer. I turned down a lot of stuff as he’s lost quite a bit of weight and I didn’t want to drown him in fabric he didn’t need (listen to me sounding like a bloody stylist over here lol 😉).
It was also quite cold out (the snow’s starting to disappear here thank god, but there’s still a chill in the air), so I wanted to pick something that was easy going enough for the pub, but warm enough for him to stagger home from the pub and wake our parents up later on with his extra loud, drunk self lol.

I found this really cosy cream cardigan which we thought would look great over his all black outfit – plain tee, skinny black jeans and Timberland boots!

And to top off the whole look, we agreed his tan coloured suede jacket would be perfect – not too thick for the pub and would keep him warm enough for his stagger home!

And no tartan in sight! 🙌🏻
A short but sweet post for today – let me know if you’d like to see more content like this. I’ve been begging Aaron to get on board with something like this, but he’s really not on board with it – so let’s try and get some momentum going so he has no option but to showcase his stylish self on here 😉
If you want to shop Luke’s outfit, I’ve tagged some of the items or similar ones below;
Cream Cardigan – Topman
Black Tee – Primark (similar link here)
Black Skinny Jeans – River Island
Black Boots – Timberland
Tan Suede Jacket – Vintage (similar link here)

    My boyfriends fashion was pretty awful when I met him and 4 years later I’d almost let him go shopping on his own now, hahaha! Styling men is so much fun, I absolutely love the boots and the cream and tan combo of the outerwear is such a nice contrast! Gotta say I do love a man in tartan though. You should deffo start a series like this, it’d be cool to see 🙂

      Hahaha!! I always go with Aaron cos he just gets bored unless I’m there making him excited about it all – unless it’s fishing related, then he’ll do that on his own 😂 and I think I’m going to do one, just gotta convince Aaron to play ball with me 😉❤️

    Styling men is so fun, I love helping my boyfriend pick out what to wear or recommending things to him that I think would suit him. The jacket is such a good shout, gotta keep warm during the drunken trek home! Haha. Love the shoes as well x
