Happy Monday lovelies, I hope you all had a super weekend!
As it's Monday, I thought I'd leave you with some super chic style from Olivia Palermo, who does fall style effortlessly. You know, just in case you woke up this morning and had an 'I hate everything in my wardrobe' moment.
The Upper East side Socialite has been frequently spotted cleverly layering her favourite wardrobe pieces; shirts and poncho/boxy style jumpers, and an oversized fur gilet thrown over blazers & tweed jackets.
Since we know she always gets photographed styled to perfection (this girl just can't help it), I guess we ought to take note that the key essentials for this Winter's wardrobe is a handful of basics that you can re-work with other items in your wardrobe already finished off with a great bag.
Key OP Winter Pieces: Leather mix jacket, Tweed jacket, leather leggings (by Daryl K), Skinny jeans, Skinny flares, Over the knee boots in leather and suede, Black jumpers (Zadig & Voltaire). This girl has so many bags that I simply cannot keep up!
Vince, with a shorter sleeve, there's room for layering over shirts or lighter pieces. I got really distracted & started oogling every bit of knitwear on Vince's site... so many gorgeous pieces!
Undeniably chic and total winner of an outfit. Everything about it rocks! A great coat and bag covers a multitude of sins and looks great even if what you're wearing underneath is your PJ top! ;)
Ok, I pulled some simple pieces off a few sites, paying homage to Miss Palermo - these are truly bargainous of course!
Buy it here.
You can get some really fantastic faux leather leggings and trousers at the moment, the Maison Martin Margiela at H& M pair are a real leather though. As much as I'd love to rock a pair, sadly I don't they'd look good on me, oh well a girl can dream!
If you don't quite fancy the Zara price tag, I found an alternate structured shopper by Boohoo at £25 here. I'm still obsessing over Accessorize's Winter collection of day bags too - all of which don't cost an arm or a leg, via here.
So, how do you feel about your Winter wardrobe pieces now, bet there's a few killer items that you can layer, mix with different textures/print, just remember to get the proportions right. It's all about re-purposing your wardrobe staples loves!
What are your go-to items that you wear and re-wear with different pieces all the time?
Have a brilliant week! Καλή εβδομάδα!
