1. Pull & Bear coat £39.99, 2. Whistles black trousers £110, 3. Oasis blue sunglasses £5, 4. ASOS tan shoe boots £27

Gwen Stefani’s signature ice blond look and retro red lips work a chic contrast to the tailoring in this mum-on-the-run look. In fact she’s perfectly style matched two trends in one. On the beauty front she’s oh so 1940’s retro. On the style front this is a cool take on the season’s obsession with Masculine/Feminine. The sexy heeled shoe boot gives a sexy spin and that neutral tone softens the look. I love the powder blue sunglasses too. Suddenly masculine/feminine looks very Gwen Stefani. That’s the point of a trend. Make it your own. I think every wardrobe needs a grey coat. Whatever shade of grey you choose to go. Grey coats have a traditional Saville Row tailoring feel to them and are a wonderful wardrobe update for those looking to move away from, or add to, their chic black coat collection.  Here is just a handful of grey coats that channel that masculine/feminine look available on Dressipi.

1. Sandro coat £640: – On the designer front this coat from Sandro has a hip colour block detail. It is a very masculine straight cut so balance the volume off with a tailored trouser, skinny or straight leg jeans. Although it has that boxy feel to it the panel detailing creates the illusion of waist definition even though it is not cinching you in at all:

2. Fenn Wright Manson £250:- For an ultra classic piece of tailoring with a streamlined edge, this coat from FWM really is a timeless wardrobe addition. This style will suit all shapes giving just enough definition where needed as well as having a low enough neckline to accommodate broad shoulders:
