As I mentioned a couple of posts ago, texture is a real thing for me at the moment. I think that, the longer I blog for and the more I learn about fashion and textiles, the more appreciative I am of combining textures, prints and colours (ahem, yes I did say colour despite the entirety of my wardrobe essentially basically being black, white or grey). This probably explains why this coat has basically not left my back in recent weeks – not only is it the warmest thing I’ve ever worn but it just works in every way that I style it. Plus it generates that much static electricity that when I wear it, I remind myself of Peter Griffin in this Family Guy scene… (turn up your volume, the sound quality is crap).
For a casual days shopping in town, I wanted to embrace ultimate comfort without compromising on style. With the added warmth of this coat, I made the brave decision to wear a vest top and honestly I wasn’t even slightly cold despite the Arctic conditions. My favourite Leggsington joggers were the trousers of choice for me that day – lightweight and comfortable yet tapering beautifully in the leg and looking undeniably chic they worked so well to add to a totally monochrome look.
