When I wear a great outfit and don’t have time to shoot it, I normally write it down so I can recreate and shoot the outfit later. I’ve done this for at least 10 outfits, but in the meantime the temperature has dropped about 15 degrees. Brrr! I’ve managed to save a few of the best outfits, though, by adding a different top layer or a wool baselayer.
Today’s outfit originally stopped at the grey turtleneck, but obviously one layer wasn’t going to cut it anymore. A wool sweater in a different hue of grey was added on top and the original snakeprint tights were swapped for thicker wool tights.
The skirt is made of the softest leather and I love the colour and the length. Pairing it with six shades of grey is a nice change from the black that I used to wear with it. When wearing this many shades of one colour, make sure that the colours that are up against each other are of a different hue, to create contrast. Wearing the darkest at the bottom is always a good trick, as this creates depth. I like how the offwhite pops against all the grey tones, bringing a touch of light to an otherwise dark outfit. This also ensured that people could actually see me in the misty and grey weather!
The wedge trainers are not an obvious shoe choice in the winter, but the shoes are lightly lined and luckily turned out to be surprisingly non-slippery on the icy pavement (as opposed to the winter boots of an old lady sliding around ahead of me).
Do you have any tricks for staying warm in winter? And what is your obvious shoe choice when it’s freezing and icy outside and you know you’ll do a lot of walking?
So long until Friday!
PS // See how I paired this peacoat with a grey sweater and navy cropped trousers back in January.
