SIX WAYS TO STYLE YOUR WINTER COAT

I feel that good coats and jackets are investment pieces. If you buy the right ones, they can last you decades. And if you’re going to invest, why not invest in local designer pieces that support the SA fashion industry.

In this post, I got some inspiration from my favourite international, street-style looks and recreated them using local pieces. Pick your favourite and copy the look using the link below.  

 

LOOK #1: POLKA DOTS & STATEMENT TEE

I just love how this look combines classic polka dots and with a statement t-shirt. It’s a laidback look that I’ll be copying using my favourite SMUDJ Bubble Coat.

LOOK #2: CROPPED JACKET & LEOPARD PRINT

Fluffy jackets and leopard print are two of the season’s biggest trends. But even though this jacket is “on trend” it will endure through the seasons. The Chanel inspired look will always be beautiful.

LOOK #3: ORANGE & NAVY

At first, we were intimidated by the colour but now that we’ve tried it, we just love all the variations of orange in this season’s collections. I’ll be teaming orange with neutrals like black grey or navy this winter. And how about these iridescent boots!

LOOK #4: ASYMMETRICAL COAT-DRESS

Some coats can double as dresses and look fab with long boots. I love the asymmetric front on this dark grey coat, it adds something truly classy.

LOOK #5: WATERFALL COAT

Waterfall coats, that drape loosely in the front are super flattering. This one is super soft, made from suede-like fabric with vegan leather arms. It’s a loungewear-meets-rockstar look!

I love how the leopard print accessories lift this look! The oversized olive coat shown here has a really stunning detail on the back. It warm and cosy and will transcend seasons.
