I’ve always prided myself on having just the right outfit for nearly every occasion, stocking my wardrobe with versatile staples and ensuring that any major gaps are promptly filled. Which is why it surprised me to notice that I didn’t have a single subtle coat in my collection; they were all either dramatically hued or boldly patterned.
So I snagged this simple, chic black coat from H&M during their online black Friday sale. I also quickly realized that a plain black coat serves as the perfect canvas for a few fun winter accessories. I found this incredibly plush statement scarf from H&M, and swapped the tie belt that came with the coat with one of my own, pilfered from a BCBG dress I purchased ages ago.
I’ve recently fallen back in love with my Nike Dunk Ski Hi sneakers. As trainers are officially having a fashion moment, it feels like the perfect time to bring these back into the rotation. And while all the streetstyle girls are rocking their Adidas Originals Superstar sneaks, these sleek black Nikes stand out from the pack.
The final crucial piece to this look? These clear frosted shades from the amazing Australian brand Quay, an always affordable brand, but even more wallet-friendly thanks to a pre-holiday sale on ASOS.
