I’m all about my basics. Give me a good pair of blue jeans and sleek black turtleneck and I’ll be good to just about any given day of the week! But to change up my signature OOTD and liven up my more classic looks, I’ve been loving playing with different overcoats. Especially now that temperatures have dropped and layers have become a standard component of my London wardrobe!
This season, the top trend on my list is without a doubt checked coats! They’ve been on my eye since spotting a few sleek styles this time last year and while I’m not one to go as trendy as layering them over hoodies (another prevalent trend in every "cool girl’s" closet). I am loving the chic, stylish touch they add to classic, winter basics. I’ve been on the hunt high and low and was sold the second I came across this double fold coat from Topshop! It can hold it’s own on a list with designer selects, but thankfully it’s only a fraction of the cost! Rightfully so, it’s selling out quickly, but I’ve linked it below, along with several just-as-chic contenders in case you’re in the market and they’re sold out of your size. (*For sizing I’m 5’5 and wearing the Petite coat in a UK size 6)
I was a bit hesitant to join the baker boy bandwagon, simply because it’s been done quite a bit this season. But after snagging this Topshop hat for a steal, I can confidently say I understand the rage and am just as much of a fan as the next girl. Oftentimes fall/winter outfits can feel a bit underwhelming. Especially if you’re like me and reach for the same signature sweaters and basics time and time again. But I love that baker boy hats liven things up and add a new element to your signature fall/ winter style!
