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.

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.

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.

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

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.

The Wang Way

Alexander Wang is one of the most dropped names in fashion circles admired for mixing cutting-edge designs with a laid-back attitude. I love Alexander Wang’s style for blending classic and refined silhouettes with an industrial edge, innovative cut and urban sensibility. His clothes are at all times luxurious, but also provocative, inspiring and wearable.

I opted for this style-meets-function statement-making Alexander Wang dark-gray wool-blend twill coat with weather-ready collar I picked up at Net-a-Porter.

The utility pocket was a major detail on the Alexander Wang A/W14 runway, and this cargo coat comes fully equipped, designed to hold all your daily life essentials.  It is finished with a neon-green corduroy collar and multiple, moulded pockets and a lightly padded quilted neon yellow lining.

I love the structured shoulders and a boxy cut that I balanced with these show-stopping Lys Polished leather ankle boots also by Alexander Wang.

There is something incredibly satisfying about wearing his heels, not only does Wang create most coveted accessories each season, but this time he also incorporates the runaway’s utilitarian feel injecting a dose of futuristic style into otherwise, daily-wear pieces.
These super cool Lys boots are crafted from polished-leather with an exaggerated, shield-like front panel. Finished with a well-balanced ostrich-effect heel, this backless,  gorgeous pair look best with shorter hemlines.

To finished off my Wang look, I went for Rocco Dumbo textured-leather tote I picked up from theOutnet.

IMG_1252

It is a much coveted and instantly recognisable cult bag featuring a classic satchel form with rock chic style including silver studded base and red pebbled-leather  The iconic bristle studded hardware and duffle-like shape give this fashionista must-have a very sought-after look,
For a hands-free style, carry it by the optional shoulder strap.

Wrap me up

I love wrapping myself up in soft and luxurious fabrics that keep the cold at bay and with this beautiful piece, casual wrap up stole is being taken to a whole new level.

P1050380
Acne Studios Neela dramatic wrap was debuted at the label’s Fall ’14 runway show. this gorgeous monochrome stole is crafted from soft wool-blend and backed in black patent leather. I bought it off NET-A-PORTER, unfortunately it has sold out since then.

P1050323

When I saw it on-line earlier in a year, I knew I had to have it. This jacquard stole is so unusual featuring a single long sleeve, funnel neck, softly gathered front with a wrap around effect. You simply slip your arm into the single sleeve, securing it at the shoulders with concealed snap fastenings.

P1050403

It is definitely a bold fashion statement and will surely get you noticed!

I wore Jeager London black wool boucle collarless jacket underneath. You can’t really see its details so I will save it for the next post but it is one of those jackets that fit in seamlessly with almost any outfit. I have been known to wear it from early spring till late autumn months.

P1050364

I teamed it up with Michael Kors black seamed zipped skinny jeans. I like the combination of black denim and golden zippers.

P1050385

P1050347

P1050344

These stylish MICHAEL KORS jeans definitely add sophisticated versatility to your wardrobe.

P1050339

I finished the look of with my foolproof L.K. Bennett Selina Mock Croc Leather Court Shoes. Unfortunately they are now sold out everywhere, you might get lucky and hunt them down on Ebay though.

P1050288

P1050290

Based on a Shilo classic design, they are exceptionally comfortable for a 4 inch heel! Th famously modern silhouette is reinforced by the fresh take on the classic bow design.

How to wear leather this season

As the cold has indeed settled in for good, the leathers are surely my autumn wardrobe constant and this is my take on how to pull the look off without looking overtly attention seeking.

P1040747

P1040761

P1040765

P1040781

I must admit that this Alexander Wang Leather and brushed-twill blazer has become a staple of my heavily leather-laden wardrobe. I picked it up on Yoox sale but is is still available on theoutnet.

P1040787

The jacket features very quirky leather halterneck vest-effect front with flap pockets and snap-fastenings through the front.

P1040790

Alexander Wang’s designs never cease to amaze me. With the urban separates that are perfect for layering, deconstructed pieces, contrasting fabrics with a spot-on finish, Wang undeniably is the king of downtown cool and effortless chic.

Therefore, there is no surprise that I have also gone for yet again another of Wang’s designs – these uber cool Greyser steel grey Kori Cut-out heel textured leather Ankle boots I got on theoutnet sale

P1040832

I love the wedge cut-out leather heel with metal hardware plate that truly makes these boots unique.

P1040828

The elasticated side panels and a pull tab at the rear create no-fuss slip on and off.

P1040826

I must admit, they are very comfortable as well!

P1040822

P1040819

For the all-leather look, I went to one of my favourite leather labels – MUUBAA whose head designer Christiana Nicolaou continually redefines what is possible in leather design, pushing boundaries to promote style individuality.

P1040895

I chose this Kalu Black leather skirt which is a classic A-line mini made from ultra soft leather, I picked it up on BrandAlley sale but unfortunately, it is no longer available.

P1040900

The central front zip with exposed teeth and double poppered tab fastening certainly give the skirt a modern twist adding on downtown cool to my look.

P1040902

I wanted to mix leather with a softer yet colour-synchonised top so I went for this JAEGER London colour block black and grey wool T-shirt. Leather and wool go together beautifully. The duo creates an interesting variation of soft and tough textures that off-set each other.

P1040907

This is probably one of those staple quality T-shirts you have in your wardrobe that will go with pretty much anything you wear but in this instance, it was a conscious decision to highlight the steel grey tone of the boots, which I hopefully achieved:).

P1040912

P1040914

P1040916

P1040924
I picked up these Ray Ban Wayfarers to finish off this sleek yet grunge look.

Summer edit on the go

So, last weekend I went to Paris and I thought it would be a perfect opportunity to take some nice shots. Here is a small preview of my summer edit on the go.

One of my recent, most cherished purchases is this lovely pair of Alexander Wang Masha Glossed-leather mules. It’s quite difficult to find minimal looking pieces that are unique but still feel new, and these Wang’s are exactly that. Having read a lot of reviews, I opted for a larger size UK  5 instead of my usual size 4, and they fit perfectly which I am so pleased with. I love the inset strap that wraps around the back of the heel and a single sole with a leather wrap. Simple, versatile and super stylish. Think of them as an alternative to the omnipresent ankle-strap sandals, and wear with everything from cocktail dresses to simple separates.

I went with this bold and simple cobalt blue Bodice Bandeau Dress by JAEGER London. Straight from the catwalk, and frequently featured in Grazia and Guardian, this stunning strapless dress is a show stopper. It is the perfect dress to be seen in for a special day out with its cute pronounced bustier and an unusual unfolding A-line shape.

Summer is the best time to show off this Love Moschino Multicolour Charming Girl Print silk Bag featuring gold-tone woven chain handles with a zipped interior pocket. I love the illustrated girl print design and its luxuriously soft silky feel. It is bound to add charm to any outfit.

For a stand-out look, I have opted for these two-tone Alexander McQueen ivory sunglasses with shaded lenses that I snapped from YOOX.com. and they are still available on sale.

Perfect summer outfit – Voilà!

Leather Edit # 4

Leather skirts are still very much a key trend this spring and as orange is new black, this off-duty Jaeger London pencil skirt is exactly what I was looking for. Crafted from super soft leather and finished with minimalist stitching, this timeless piece is well worth the investment.
Paired with silk monochrome Jaeger blouse and Sam Edelman Black Ria Suede ankle boots, it is simple, elegant and very wearable!
