Currently I'm obsessed with over-sized coats of any colour. I think they are a statement piece that instantly dress up a basic or plain outfit. You can pair them with basic t-shirts and skinnies and they would make the outfit alot more dressed up and edgy. For the look above, I've decided to dress up a rather monochromatic look with a bright coral-ish blue coat. I think everything goes perfectly together. Just clean, minimal and simple but with a lot of character. The look is perfect for work or even for a day/night event. If and when you have to take off the coat, the button up shirt has this cool embroidery that will add an instant lift to a rather basic look.

Style Icon: Emmanuelle Alt


Emmanuelle Alt, the editor in-chief of Vogue Paris has impeccable sense of style. There's no doubt that she is one of my most influential style/fashion icons. I love how she always wears jeans/pants/trousers paired with a simple t-shirt and topped off with a structured blazer. It's so simple but edgy and chic. I wonder how many blazers she has in her wardrobe. I absolutely love to dress like her, dressing like this makes me feel comfortable in my skin. I cannot be bothered with skirts and dresses. This is the way to dress! Her sense of style is to die for.



Street Inspiration : Coat w/ Leather Sleeves


Right now, I'm pretty much obsessed with coats w/ leather sleeves or anything with leather sleeves, even button up shirts with leather details on the collar, cuffs and button areas. They just add a small but statement detail on a piece of clothing. On top of that, leather always makes anyone look cool. I can't wait for the day that I go to a country with four seasons just so that I can wear leather! Its just way too hot over here for leather.
