This week, I’m going slouchy and oversized for the ultimate Céline feel. Wearing my Mum’s oversized See by Chloé coat in a luxurious burgundy; slung over my shoulders (this is how I “wear” my coats – I’m usually too lazy to wear them properly!) and buttoned just above the knee for that perfect cocoon look. Keeping it casual with a plain black, long-sleeved top from Bobi (got it in Greece), my favourite grey leopard super skinnies from ASOS (similar here) and these super cool cut-out ankle boots from Office – totally obsessed, been wearing them almost every day since I bought them in November! They are really easy to walk in every day as they have just the perfect heel (8cm) for that extra bit of height and sexiness while still being casual and totally cool – Alexander Wang reimagined.
Not really into overcharging my outfits with jewellery and other accessories, I’m staying simple with this stunning, two-tone clutch from NEXT. It’s soft and slouchy and has a lovely, pale grey colour to suit any look. Love its sumptuous texture and hidden touches of cobalt blue. An easy accessory which can take you from day to night. Clutching it with the physical ease of Céline and sporting a fabulous, blue YSL “Arty” ring with bright blue nails to match. This soft cuff clutch also comes in total blue, black/blue and metallic rose. You can find it here.
Totally loving the minimal, androgynous attitude of the S/S 14 collections. With my favourite designers and brands (Acne, Céline, Jil Sander) having showcased the ‘mannish chic’ look, stealing from the boys has never looked better. I love to wrap up in a structured, oversized coat over an all-white or grey look with a pair of geometric ankle boots and an exquisite bag. There is something very refreshing about masculinity in fashion, especially reimagined and combined with 90’s minimalism. It is very different to the colour-blocking, embellishment and print-craze of the last couple of years – and I am in love.
