The Look: 1940's French workwear jacket, Portobello Road. Black Capri Pants; Gap.
Workwear jackets go anywhere, are really durable and improve with age. You have to ferret out the vintage ones by searching market stalls and ebay. New versions are on the The Carrier Company website, T. Burrows do them for men, Margaret Howell and Uniqlo have produced them in the past. Lindsey wears hers all the time, with casual and smart clothes. It's perfect for when she's heading off on her bike to do some shopping for her 'Dinner Tonight' column in The Times.
