STYLE ADVICE: Trouser alternative for an occasion look

Posted on: March 11, 2016


If you’re not really a dress person there are some great options to occasion outfitting. I have said it before, coats have come into their own and it really is all about the statement coat. In Paris at Fashion Week a casual pair of jeans and all those sporty trainers were elevated to fashion status and street style appeal (some  looks a bit daft I have to admit) thanks to a statement coat. Coats are also a great way to wear a print. Keep everything else neutral and plain. This waist defining jersey top is ultra-flattering thanks to the gathering details but also those soft drapes. It also comes in navy. You can style this shape with a pencil skirt too. Ivory coloured trousers ooze elegance don’t they? Turn this into a casual summer look with a tan wedge heel and your favourite tee or a kaftan style print top. Add a statement necklace for maximum appeal – this one perfectly matches the colours of the coat. Finally – every wardrobe needs a go-with-everything metallic sandal. It will get you out of any occasion wear style rut. Natalie x
