AN OUTFIT YOUR MUM'LL LIKE
By Kasia Hastings, 21 March 2017
You know the drill – last-minute trim, quick shave and whichever clean clothes you can find on your floordrobe. Sure, it’s a formula that’s worked pretty well in the past but, this Mother’s Day, why not raise the bar a little and treat your ma to some fresh SS17 style? Start your look off with a brown corduroy jacket to add some cool 70s nostalgia to proceedings. Even if you aren’t actually seeing her this Sunday, the warm texture and a cosy borg collar mean a piece like this is a smart early spring investment that’ll help you nail dressing for trickier transitional weather.
Next, strike the perfect smart-casj balance by layering a short-sleeved shirt with a revere collar over a long-sleeved tee. Lose the the second layer if it’s too directional for your old dear, but a print-clash like this is a power move that’ll make you the talk of the table. With all that action up top, go for a pair of smart tapered trousers on the bottom with subtle checks to keep things suitable suave. Finish up with a pair of tidy kicks like the Nike Cortez in black leather, and you’re about ready to join everybody and their mum for Sunday lunch.
