3 Ways to Style: The Louche Koto Stripe Chambray Jacket

Introducing the newest addition to our jacket collection: The Louche Koto. A modern twist on the classic denim jacket, this striped chambray number is the statement outerwear piece you need. A patterned jacket may seem daunting to style but we have put together three simple looks to showcase how versatile the Louche Koto is.

Brunch with the girls is the perfect time for your Louche Koto’s debut. You can experiment styling the jacket without judgement and reward your efforts with a massive stack of pancakes with a side of bacon. We styled the Louche Koto with the Louche Cathleen Dog Print tea dress for an adorably laidback look. The bright red of the tea dress compliments the bold blue and white stripes gorgeously and the cute pooch pattern adds playfulness to the outfit. Pairing pattern with pattern can be risky but we think these two prints work well together. A general rule of thumb when pairing patterns is to pair a larger print with a smaller one. The graphic stripes paired with the daintier pooch print contrast well and the scattered dalmatian pattern mirrors the silver circle buttons of the jacket tying both prints together nicely. Stick to minimal accessories like the Louche Interlinked Studs and Louche Luxe Emily personalised necklace in gold to let the Louche Koto be the star of the show. Style with a pair of on trend chunky trainers - perfect for your post brunch roll home.

The best day of the week is finally here. You’ve done it. You’ve survived another working week. Putting any effort into your appearance was forgotten about by Tuesday and you have happily embraced slob life ever since. However, Friday is different. Friday is your time to shine. Prove to your colleagues (and yourself) that you can look nice – when you can be bothered. The Louche Koto Stripe Chambray jacket is a great statement piece that epitomises that ‘Friyay’ feeling and can be dressed up or down. Let’s say you’re going for cocktails after work. Plan ahead and wear a pair of smart Louche Meredith Cigarette trousers to transition from day to night seamlessly. We think the navy Meredith trousers work best with the bold blue and white striped Louche Koto. Remember to grab a slinky camisole to change into in the work toilets when 5pm hits. The Louche Yolaine Satin Cami is the ideal piece for amping up any outfit for night time. Statement accessories are key for a day to night transformation and we are in love with the oversized square Matilda earrings for just that. Add a pair of strappy black heels and you’re ready to let your hair down and party the evening away. Enjoy!

The boxy cut of the Louche Koto is perfect for any formal occasion you have in your diary. This look works for a whole host of events. Afternoon tea? Tick. Your Grandma’s 80th birthday? Tick. A christening? Tick. The jacket’s versatility makes styling outfit after outfit a piece of cake. Pair the boxy fit with the uber feminine Fiorella Baneberry midi dress and black ankle boots for an effortlessly smart look. Bright mustard is the colour of the season and contrasts well with the Louche Koto’s blue and white graphic stripes. Mixing patterns can be a dangerous game but we love how these two look together, especially with the Louche Leah floral drop earrings, as they tie the cool and warm tones in the outfit together wonderfully. You’ll look polished enough for Grandma and cool enough for your Insta followers. Win, win.

What do you think of our three looks? We hope that they have inspired you to give the versatile Louche Koto a go and to experiment with your wardrobe a bit more.
