Flowing coats are one of my favourite outerwear in-between the seasons. This  JAEGER reversible herringbone wool coat has certainly got the air of casual insouciance and it weighs so little, it can be tossed over the shoulders like a shawl – I love its astonishing versatility and flattering fit.

IMG_6400

Cloud-soft and lightweight, the double-faced grey wool coat is perfect for making an easy transition into a warmer season. Designed to a wrap-around silhouette with a waist-cinching belt, this chic piece is reversible – giving you two tones of grey- cloudy and slightly darker herringbone – to choose from.

I wore it with one of my favourite 3.1 Phillip Lim duo: Wool blend mini-skirt and chic grey jumper.

IMG_6495

I love the structured look of this lilac white nylon shell skirt with contrasting flocked wool pattern throughout.

Fluffy lilac grid adds texture and gives the boxy-cut skirt a contemporary spin.

IMG_6499

3.1 Phillip Lim Cash Only Terry Sweater is a cool statement piece for a laid-back style…

IMG_6462

Slim-fitted heathered grey cotton sweater with ribbed round neck, cuffs and hemline, dropped shoulder seams and black raised ”CASH ONLY” textured lettering is a fun way to go about!

I accesorised with Jil Sander‘s sleek and sophisticated and roomy luxe appeal tote. This grape leather tote has been crafted in Italy with a green leather-lined interior and detachable shoulder strap, equipped with multiple pockets to keep your essentials in check, double top handles and protective feet.  Complete with stamped branding and a top zip, your workwear looks will be given an instant lift.

This tote certainly offers an immaculate finish for all four seasons.

The final touches are JAEGER patent grey leather heels with a cute burgundy ribbon and pink sunglasses.

Shearling Wonderland

This season designers have gone gaga over the shearling and fluffy coats in all forms and shapes.

To me, shearling is the autumn’s equivalent of the leather jacket so it has indeed become my winter wardrobe staple. Shearling permeates every major trend this season: oversized, folk ’70s, utilitarian, you name it. So I guess, the question is not if you are going to be wearing shearling, but how you will be wearing shearling this season. Luckily, the answer is – any way you want! If you, like me – love being warm and fashionable at the same time (and it is not always easy) you will most likely be the proud owner of at least a few of these beauties in different colours and shapes.
However, there is always the possibility that the idea of a shearling coat simply does not appeal to you or is just too much for you you. No need to fret, you can always acknowledge the trend via accessories, shearling-lined buckled boots, shearling tote, shearling scarf, everything goes!
In my shearling extravaganza, I went for this gorgeous Karl Donoghue Belted shearling-trimmed leather coat I picked up from theOutnet.

 Karl Donoghue is one of many talented British designers who started his label in 1995, creating super soft and tactile ready-to-wear and accessories from the finest shearling and leather. Inspired by natural skins and their unique qualities, his cozy-chic collection of shearling leather and sumptuous fur has me fallen head over heels for his designs.

This shearling coat has been handcrafted in England. The soft beige and gray hues make it go with everything from denim to tailored trousers. I love the sumptous shearling collar, buckled waist belt and asymmetric zip through front. The sheared shearling interior makes it even more desirable!

Mary Katrantzou – best known for her breakthrough prints – is one of my favorite Birish designers. This Athens-born Wunderkind, launched her eponymous label in 2008, showcasing a perfect balance of flawless tailoring, structured shapes, intelligent use of digital patterns and daring kaleidoscopic prints.
Her creations are truly works of art and this Black MVK Small Verde handbag is no exception.
Rendered in rich tri-tone leather, this small bag is perfect for holding all your essentials and a high-style choice for teaming up with printed separates. Made in neutral earthy tones of nougat, black and ivory leather, it features a square body, front flap close with two internal compartments and a detachable strap so can be used as a clutch. I love the structured design and ultra chic look that oozes sophistication! One of my favourite bags to date! I am slowly collecting her treasured designs in my wardrobe so brace yourself for more of her hyper-real prints and daring designs!

The Coat Season

So we are well and truly into the coat season. As much as I dislike the cold, it is immensely comforting to know that I will be blissfully warm just by throwing a shearling coat on.

Not only are the shearling coats incredibly cozy and practical but they also exude a certain level of timeless luxury and style.
I must admit, I love shopping out of season. You can certainly get more for your money, especially, when like me – you love luxury brands!

I have chosen to go with this gorgeous Just Cavalli green coat I bought from theOutnet some time ago.

Showcasing the fabulous trademark of Roberto Cavalli, sister line Just Cavalli is a riot of vibrant color, print and ceaseless glamour. Dark green has become one of my favourtite colours and I love the way it is juxtaposed with the black lamb shearling collar and cuffs.

One of the unusual features are the hinged fastenings at the front, a funky alternative to buttons, zips or clip-ons.

When in need of turning up the cool-factor of fashion-forward winter looks, put on those super soft dark green ankle boots from Chloé featuring almond toe and block heel.

I love everything about them, the super sleek look, dark shade of green and how comfortable are they!

I colour blocked with this amazing Alexander Wang Rocketeer glossed-leather satchel I picked up on theOutnet.

There is something so mesmerising about the handbag, I could not stop looking at it when I first got it, admiring the beauty of the design, superb leather quality and the complicated curved lines that very much remind me of the forgotten shape of an accordion.

P1070297

The bag features one open central section and two tab-fastening side compartments. The satchel is undoubtedly in the list of my top 10 favourite bags to date.
