What I Wore: Hey, Lover

3rd August, 2019

Sometimes you have to let your outerwear do all the talking and that’s exactly the case with this coat by Lover. I am all about a statement coat and the amazing checked print on this trench is the kind of piece that doesn’t require much else—it’s strong enough to hold its own. I also love the midi length as it’s got a polished feels, whilst the flared sleeves lend a playful touch to the overall silhouette. I could easily pop this on over anything and walk out the door without missing a beat. And that’s something that I look for when it comes to anything I own—versatility is key when it comes to a making something truly wearable. Plus I just have a soft spot for a coat that’s striking and a little bit different.

There’s no point in having the rest of your outfit competing when it comes to statement pieces so I opted to keep my accessories quite minimalist. Simple and sleek is best when wearing anything that’s a little bit bold. I wore black Giuseppi Zanotti strappy heels to add a dressy touch and my fave new piece, a quilted Chanel backpack. I love the balance of wearing something that’s quite utilitarian such as a backpack paired with pieces that are a little extra such as a patterned coat and cat eye sunglasses.

What I Wore: The trench coat

10th August, 2017

Along with a classic coat which I wrote about here I think a trench coat is a fashion staple that can work in so many different ways. It constantly features on many a fashion magazine’s round-up of key wardrobe pieces to have due to its timeless look and enduring style appeal. And no wonder—it can be paired with virtually everything and instantly adds a chic touch to even the most casual of outfits. In this instance I’ve gone for a relaxed day look by teaming it my favourite leather pants, a simple white tee and my go-to Gucci slides. I’ve made it a little more on trend by wearing the sleeves rolled up and tying the belt in the back which also gives it a more nonchalant feel. I can see this trench coat being easily popped on over a dress for the evening or with jeans and a button-down shirt for an elevated take on a casual ensemble.
