GOOD EVENING EVERYONE! As someone who usually takes a more tonal/monochromatic approach to fashion, it was kind of a surprise how drawn I was to this bright red trench coat. I’m not sure whether it was the effortless movement, the easy-to-wear texture, or perhaps the coats ability to spin, swoosh and fly around with me as I ‘whip my hair back and forth’ as if I am in some kind of atrociously entertaining music video. Either way, this was a winter statement piece that I couldn’t quite help but get my hands on!
I’ve been pairing the bright trench with darker, more stereotypically winter shades such as navy and black, and in particular this boxy, button down, smock-like shirt. In true Jessica & Love fashion, I couldn’t quite wear every item of clothing in its recommended form, so wore what-is-supposed-to-be a black pencil skirt (perfect for quite possibly, every single occasion) as a tube-dress and chucked some dark navy denim jeans underneath to create a point of difference. Yep. I know. If there is such thing as taking layering too far (read: there is no such thing as taking layering too far), I am definitely in that ‘too far’ category…
With such a statement piece sweeping its way across my favourite white wall, (known to some as #TheMagicWall), I added a couple of delicate gold necklaces and a dark red/purple lip and kept accessories to a minimal.
