A Lesson in Spring Layering : Part 2

Continuing with spring layering, we can navigate this tricky time period together – when the weather itself doesn’t know what the hell it’s doing so how on earth should we? I was sent this laaaaavely long coat recently and wanted to style it up for a while but I do like to keep my outfits relevant ish to the weather.

Spring Layering

For me it’s all about the layers. Hence the name – Spring Layering – duh? But in this case I’m not talking about for warmth, I’m talking textures and fashion people.

Yes, the leather jacket is a necessary layer that will keep you warm in this outfit, but that flash of black leather from underneath the lightweight coat just gives your look that certain – je ne said quoi. Combined with the croc leather bag (my must have until the Gucci is mine) it just gives a classic look a tougher edge and a little somethin’ somethin’ different.

Obviously these glove shoes were a must and I’m trying to get someone to buy me a black pair from Topshop for my birthday next month. Unfortunately everyone I know hates them and refuses to buy them  . . guess they’ll have to be a gift from me to me.

    I would have thought such a long coat would be hard to pull off, but it looks great on you 🙂
