    All the basics, now what...?

    Right. I need a top layer to go with my collection of basic items for the bank holiday.

    I have a good collection of basics but never know how to finish them off. This weekend i plan on wearing my white oxford, indigo slim jeans and brown leather desert esque boots. How to i finish this off to create a smart casual look?

    Ta.

    Some kind of blazer, no?

    I'm jealous. Would love to have all the basics covered.

    All the basics but nothing interesting is the problem.

    Blazer is the obvious choice but i just never think they suit me. I'm 6'2 and skinny so there is always something badly fitting about 'off the peg' ones.

    Varsity jacket? Contrasting denim jacket? Blazer? Bomber? A thick-jacketish shawl cardigan? Loads of options.

    Why not try an unstructured blazer? Bit more casual and might fit a bit better also.

    How about a lightweight blazer? Might find the softer material fits you better than a cotton fabric.

    What's the occasion? Could swap out the desert boots for loafers if it's a day time jaunt and the sun is shining.
