It’s no secret I’m a huge fan of mixing textures and in winter it’s even easier with chunky knits, wool coats, leather and that’s before we even get onto festive looks of velvet, lace and brocade.
I also champion pieces which can be taken from day to night, work to weekend or in my case, work to mum duty to weekend to evening.
In this outfit I’ve combined a metallic detail printed skirt (typically evening style) with a cable knit sweater (classic winter casual) and brought it all together with a textured wool coat which works equally well with skinny jeans and trainers on the school run as it does dressed up for an evening out in a LBD.
Think you’ve nothing to wear? Take an evening garment to daytime or daytime basic to evening and you may be surprised at the looks you can create.
Use your third piece (coat, jacket or top layer) to bring the look together. In this case, the navy colour of the coat works with the grey knit effortlessly and the rough texture tones down the metallic finish on the skirt to balance the look as a whole.
