It's no secret that the best thing about winter is the coats and jackets. I'm beyond excited to see the new season feature coats coming through and trying to decide which ones need to live with me! I am very partial to bright block colours and am loving the bold check trend that's coming through but I couldn't go past this jacket from Seed. The khaki colour way comes off as casual, but paired with a smart cut and very shiny gold buttons (magpie alert) it's actually a polished look. This is the kind of jacket you could throw over a pair of distressed boyfriend jeans, your fav tee and either a pair of black flats or heeled pumps, or a long more form fitting knit dress with ankle boots and be ready to go almost anywhere. I've paired it with a crisp white Cue shirt, because I just can't get enough of white shirts. I actually may have a problem, but it's the best kind of problem so I won't be checking into white shirt rehab anytime soon.
Now if you haven't scored yourself some black wax coated jeans yet I suggest you do so ASAP. These guys are from Decjuba and almost act like a leather pant, because of the subtle shine it elevates your outfit the draws the eye into the centre shine line so it flatters your leg. Genius, go get some.
Accessories are one of the easiest ways to change/freshen up an outfit to keep it looking current. The round eye Ray Bans from Sunglass Hut are having a huge moment right now and the mirror lens is a great, slightly unexpected way to add a colour pop. The grown up backpack is also very on trend right now and this glossy Cue bag is right on point.
Now let’s talk boots. Nine West have absolutely slayed the proportions of these stunning thigh highs, the combo of the well rounded toe, heel thickness and length mean they are uber flattering and easy to wear. I've popped them over jeans but they are also a great way to warm up a midi skirt and look fab popping out the bottom. They also come in grey!!
