URBAN OUTFITTING: PIETER AND JOERI HARDWEARING

September 16, 2015

Autumn has arrived while August has slipped quietly out the back door. We’re thinking about layering up and dressing for the changeable weather that plagues us at this time of year. We wake up and it’s cold, by lunchtime it’s sunny and by afternoon it’s raining. It really is enough to make a fashion conscious person mad. Luckily for you, fashion bloggers Pieter and Joeri Hardwearing are on hand with their autumnal styling advice. Joeri styles the Farah Harrington bomber jacket while Pieter shows us how to go from ultimate casual to fancy evening dress with the Cheap Monday grey sweatshirt. Take it away guys…

A bomber jacket is a staple item for every man. They’re super easy to style and add a contemporary, timeless edge to your look. We love the vintage feel to this jacket. If you’re not a fan of thick winter jackets, a bomber will definitely last you through autumn and a good part of winter. (Although it wouldn’t be particularly useful during a snowstorm!)

Joeri styles the Farah Harrington jacket

Outfit 1



Bomber jackets are so comfortable to wear which makes for an all-round comfy styling solution. Some ripped jeans and a slightly oversized T-shirt and you’re ready for your day off.

Joeri wears:
Farah Harrington Jacket
Shore Leave by Urban Outfitters Benny Navy Tee
Urban Renewal Vintage Destroyed Denim Jeans



Outfit 2



The summer is ending; certainly in Belgium it’s getting way colder already which means you’ll probably need a jacket to go out. We fell in love with this linen shirt – when paired with the jacket makes for an ultra minimalistic look.

Joeri wears:
Farah Harrington Jacket
L’Homme Rouge Linen Short Sleeve Shirt in Washed White
Cheap Monday Tight Stretch Black Jeans



Outfit 3



Champion always has a range of good basics to wear with a bomber. This season, this sweatshirt and the jacket will do everything when – in a few months – the days will be getting colder.

It’s no secret that we love our fashion like our lifestyle: easy-going. When getting up in the morning and you haven’t had a cup of coffee yet, it can be a bit too much like hard work to pick out an entire outfit. If you choose neutral pieces that be easily paired with the majority of your wardrobe, you’re on to something. I chose to style up this grey Cheap Monday sweater because it goes with almost everything and is suitable for every occasion.

Outfit 1



This look is perfect for when you have a busy day ahead. Whether rain or shine, you’re sorted for all weather conditions. When it’s just a little bit colder, you can zip the jacket and when it’s hot you can easily take it off and carry it with you.

Pieter wears:

Carhartt Black Coach Jacket

Outfit 2



This sweater is easy to combine with a statement piece. I only ever go for one statement piece per outfit. Since this sweater is so serene, it won’t be too much.

Pieter wears:

Cheap Monday Grey Sweatshirt
Levi’s 501 Spitalfields Jeans
adidas Originals Stan Smith White and Blue trainers



Outfit 3



If you’re heading out to a fancier joint, you can easily wear this sweater over a shirt to give it a more classic feel. While this outfit is also comfortable, you can easily style it up.

Cheap Monday Grey Sweatshirt
