Fall’s simplest way to make a statement? A leather coat…
Hey everyone and a happy start to the week! It’s bank holiday so no work for me today (hurrah!) but its meant to be raining all day so its going to be a chilled one. Yesterday I went to the Notting Hill Carnival for the first time and it was insane, super busy with an amazing vibe but just a little bit too crowded and mad at times. Have any of you ever been?
Hideous weather is a good incentive to start looking towards fall and for some great transitional pieces that you can add to your summer wardrobe, and my top choice is a leather coat. I bought this Celine jacket a few years ago and it was the most luxurious and indulgent purchase ever and I got to shoot it a few months ago with a fab fashion blogger Sabrina from Clutch & Carry-On. Super soft leather in a stunning shade of green with fun leopard print pockets make it a strong statement piece that doesn’t require a lot of styling. During colder months I wear it with a roll neck and boots but for now, I can get away with a silk floral print top, jeans and comfy flats.
There are already a lot of great leather or vinyl options to choose from, I especially love this one from Topshop as its a great take on the patent and PVC trend that we have seen from the likes of Miu Miu and especially Calvin Klein Collection. But how gorgeous is this simple navy MSGM coat? Wear with a roll neck, a cute mini and heeled ankle boots for a seventies vibe.
Im so sad that summer is over but Im really looking forward to the Fashion Month and this year I’ll be doing London Fashion Week as normal and Paris which is a new one for me! I don’t know if any of you guys will be heading to LFW or PFW too but if you are, give me a shout, would be lovely to meet some new bloggers!
Have a great start to the week and let me know what you think about this look! xx
