Christmas party trend – Velvet jackets – but are you ‘money’ enough to wear one?

The last time that Velvet jackets seriously disturbed the High Street was in the 90s, when inspired by movies like Swingers and clubs like Smashing, dressing up like Noel Coward (and don’t forget that neck scarf) became a must for both gay and straight men. It seems now that velvet jackets are making a return to the High Street now. …

Inspired by this lovely diamond-weave straw hat over at An Innocent Bystander blog, I’ve been hunting out an equally summery straw hat for a couple of weeks now. But from the high street up, most versions around are pork pie style with that rather mean brim. To my mind, this style has become synonymous with English lads abroad, so the more classic options I stumbled on at Marks & Spencer are a welcome relief. My favourite here, wider brimmed with the genuine Panama-style pinched crown and a tasteful striped trim, comes in a flattering yellow-tone and looks much more expensive than the £45 price tag suggest. Who’d have thunk it?
