Overworn Overwear

One of my biggest fashion habits is wearing one item of clothing too many times. Today’s coat is a perfect example. I wore it only a few days ago, but luckily I’m not a celebrity so that doesn’t matter. What initially drew me to this piece was the bright colour, but I quickly learned that this coat is incredibly versatile. At first, I thought I could only pair this coat with clothing that features a similar colour, like today’s top – but I’ve found that my jacket can be worn with many different colours and clothing. If I want to really stand out, and I pair the coat with another bright colour, including orange which is the contrasting colour to blue and really brighten up a look. However, I can also wear this coat as a statement piece, as the colour is very bright so wearing much darker colours underneath will illuminate the whole look. I love that the coat is very light, but also contains wool so it’s perfect for this time of year. As the temperature begins to drop and the clock will eventually go backwards, I’m going to begin to appreciate this jacket even more. Today is quite a casual day so I’ve chosen to dress down my whole look rather than go along with the elegance and sharpness of my coat. Today’s shoes are very similar to skater shoes that are available from stores such as Vans and Schuh, they’re super casual and give off an easygoing vibe.
