Hey Crohnies and Lucky Coiners!
I thought it was about time I did a post about my favourite guys and girls clothing items this season. It’s all about warmth to keep those bugs at bay, the warm autumn colours I just LOVE and practicality and although I can’t personally say I’ve tried the menswear I’m including reasons why I believe it would be handy for people with scars/burns/ostomys.
I’ll do ladies first so Crohnies here’s your bit…
Here’s my favourite lose fitting Cami top that is ideal for someone with a stoma, the V front V back Vest from Oasis, (£25) is absolutely gorgeous, it is fitted at the chest and lose around the tummy and I absolutely love the design, I plan on wearing it with high waisted black jeans and a pair of lace up black booties and a blazer for a chic look at meetings or worn with high waisted black jeans and studded biker boots as a cool uni outfit with a leather jacket and oversize tartan scarf. (I’ll also add that Oasis has a 10% student discount at the moment I took total advantage of!)
Next I have to admit I’m currently a jean junkie, I have every high waisted style and fit and I currently love these New Look high waist super skinny jean, Asos (£22.99), they have a great high waist that covers a multitude of sins and the slight stretch in the jeans also allows for maximum comfort and would look great either dressed down with a pair of original black and white vans and a tucked in band T Shirt or dressed up with a casual blouse such as this one I got from Asda £18
Lastly here is my winter boot of the season, are these gorgeous Blowfish Octave Texas Coffee boots (£51) I’ve had these in black before, it was actually Duncan who got me them in black and they were my favourite boots of all time. I’ve been dying to find another pair so I’m unbelievably tempted to buy them, although with being a student and saving up as much money as possible, I’m torn between buying them and leaving it for now. They’re so comfortable and they’re very good at supporting your ankles, which is perfect for someone like me who tends to go over on their ankles a lot!
And now on to the boys and you Lucky Coiners!…
I absolutely love the design and how cozy this Topman Burgundy Multi Cable Knit Jumper (£32) looks. It also is very fitted so should help any of you guys who struggle finding clothes that fit properly and well, it’s one of the things I’ve heard from Duncan that Topman does very well.
Next I’ve found some jeans that look to be a higher waist fit than most other jeans I’ve been looking at online and seem to cover any bags for ostomys, although I can’t confirm it completely the H&M skinny fit nearly black jeans (£24.99) seem to encompass everything I look for in a pair of jeans for myself and I love the colour of the jeans.
I think the outfit combined with the Topman Jumper and the H&M jeans is completed with the classic look of Vans Old Skool in Black from Office (£51) and all that’s missing is a leather jacket for the perfect autumn look.
The outfit as a whole is covering any uncomfortable parts and anything you’d feel you want to hide while also being warm enough to hopefully avoid catching any bugs and also being supported and comfortable in what you’re wearing!
