Similar but different

Here I am showing you the last outfit of this week, which is a rather predictable combination of colors - black, white and red, but it also is one of my favourites. Yes, the location is the same as the one which you might have seen HERE (even though it was not planned at all), and the color palette of the outfit is also similar, but..let's agree that the looks are totally different. :)

A checked coat is definitely one of the pieces which I didn't have so far and you already know how much I loved this print during summer, so I said why not try styling a coat as well?! So I did and I totally love the result. The coat is in fact more of a trench coat because the fabric is not very thick, but with some layering it can be worn during winter as well. It is lined, double-breasted (with snap buttons on one side) and it comes with a belt as well. I love the fact that it is long and it comes below my knees and I think it is truly a statement piece.

In my opinion, the gingham / checked print looks best with a bright color, therefore I decided to pair it with my new red SWEATER, which is very thick, soft and warm and besides the beautiful color which has been everywhere this autumn/winter, it has balloon sleeves which are also one of this season's trend. Moreover, I think that this type of sleeves make the simplest sweater look at little more sophisticated. :)

For this outfit I chose to pair the sweater with a pair of patent / vinyl trousers, which everyone is mad about at the moment. This fabric is definitely one of this season's must-haves and to be honest, it really got to me. Even though I consider it a rather "complicated" fabric because it is very easy to fail while styling it and get to the trashy/cheap extreme, if it is styled right it just looks amazing.
Some of the tips I have for you when styling a patent item would be to either wear it in a sporty-chic  look, with sneakers, flat boots, a sweatshirt, etc, or if we take today's example, I added a white shirt to equilibrate the situation. The idea is to keep everything as simple as possible because this fabric is "complicated" enough to stand out by itself. :)

Let me know what you think and I can't believe I'm saying this, but I wish you all a lovely, merry Christmas with happiness, health, joy, love, magical times spent with family and friends, a beautiful Christmas tree and of course..many pretty presents!

Love, A.
