The cold weather is on its way which means out comes the long thick coats and wooly scarves. I know many people dread the winter season as it’s not as easy to dress for work and evenings out. Especially, as summer is so simple, just throw on a shirt and some shorts.
I thought I would share one of my favourite winter looks that is perfect for a cold winters evening or even to wear to work. Whichever you choose.
I absolutely love this classic look, because as a rule of thumb it works really well. Whatever colour clothing you decide on, as long as the theme is the same. Long coat, scarf, shirt, skinny/slim trousers and smart shoes.
However, I wanted to step outside of my comfort zone and try a different array of colours that aren’t usually my go to. My wardrobe is full of a few staple colours, blue, grey, black and white. Therefore putting together a ‘nude’ colours look was interesting.
So for the top half, I worked with white dress shirt as a base. I feel everything can be built up from white. Throwing over a long dark caramel long coat from Hammond & Co contrasted really well but there was something lacking. I needed some blue. This lovely Ted Baker scarf has a couple of lovely shades of blue but also adds some grey (another favourite) and some plum to add to the autumnal look.
I especially love the detailing on the Hammond long coat, i’ve had a few people complimenting it saying it makes the coat look even more elegant and expensive than the price tag at £145.
For the lower half, I wore skinny cream chino-like trousers from Topman to keep the ‘nude’ look going throughout but I felt the lighter blend balanced out the darker tones from the coat and chelsea boots nicely.
Finally, pairing it with a smart pair of tan leather chelsea boots from Hammond & Co, which are perfect for the A/W season and never go out of style. Another true classic.
I accessorised the look with a smart Daniel Wellington watch with a tan strap and a dark brown bag from Kurt Geiger to complete the look.
What are your go to winter looks, ladies and gents?
Also a huge thank you to Em from Catch 52 for doing this shoot for me.
Until next time…
