Tried It On: Boucle Beautiful

My name is Laura Schofield and I am addicted to jackets. Tweed ones, ruched ones, waterfall ones, ones with pretty shoulder details. I think they really add interest and texture to a tall frame and are particularly fab for this in-betweeny weather.

Please don’t think I’m a total blazer-brat. Most of them come from H+M, Primarni and — ahem — Asda, and I do wear them almost every day for work. 

I usually buy cropped sleeve blazers so that the length doesn’t matter, but I was delighted when ATTT reader Fi got in touch to share this pretty Warehouse boucle that actually hits her wrists…

“I found this jacket (£65) in Warehouse at the weekend and immediately thought of your Tried It On feature when I saw how long the sleeves were.  I looked on Warehouse’s website and they say that their models are 5’10” (though they must have short legs as the 30″ inseam jeans seem to fit them OK….) which is a refreshing change from stores that use girls around 5’6″ and it might be worth your readers checking it out.  I’m 5’11” myself and you can find me blogging about tall style at”

Nice one petal, and thanks for sharing your brilliant blog.

If you’ve got a long-length clothing find to share, then drop me an email to

  1. Yeah! Feel the blazer love. I have one from New Look Tall range that I wear all the time. They smarten up any outfit so are pretty handy : ). X

    Thanks hun. Are you liking New Look’s new-look Tall range?!x

  3. I’m on the prowl for more blazers/jackets. I’m having some serious bratty jealousy issues looking at your fabulous blazer collection, Laura. Haha…just kidding. I think I’ll follow your advice and look for some cropped sleeve “non-tall” ones. And I love Fi’s find! Great cropped fit
