Hello, my dear friends! 2016 is almost over but we still haven’t seen lots of signs of winter (not that I am complaining, knock on wood). When I was approach by Farfetch earlier in the fall to create a favorite winter look, I immediately thought about two things: gold and vintage military. When you throw in a vintage-inspired coat or jacket, the whole look get so much more charming.
Long story short, I started with my favorite coat of this year, a reclaimed officer’s coat, paired with a golden velvet dress, then amplified the vintage vibes with a ruffled Victoria blouse. More gold was thrown in via the handbag but keep the balance with block-heel boots.
You can almost formulate this look because a masculine outer layer and a feminine inner layer work like a charm. For example, if I swap out the officer coat to say, an oversized biker jacket, I’d keep the dress but replace the girly blouse to a turtle neck, and pair with edgier platform boots, and the new look is street chic with a side of polished luxury because of the lush velvet.
On the other hand, by changing out the dress to something sporty, such as striped pants and a super romantic, ruffled, chiffon blouse, you will get another androgynous look that will take you easily from day to night.
Even without any added fuss, the coat alone can be a statement and make this winter a tad more whimsical.
Thank you so much for reading! See you in my next post!
