After a long week of tailored suits and high heels we usually can’t wait to get into our cosy knits for a more relaxed, weekend feel. And it seems like the best place to be getting our winter outfit inspiration right now is from the runway models. Think less rules and playful styling. The need to scroll through endless amounts of social media posts for style inspiration is no longer necessary. Especially when you have models like Gisele Bundchen showing you how to style up essential pieces for the season. International city streets have become our runway for off-duty looks and these are the looks we want to copy…
Shop the look
There’s nothing more chic than a trench coat and knee high boots, and this outfit ticks all the right boxes for an off-duty look.
Top tip: A trench coat is a wardrobe staple that every woman should have in her closet as it can be worn in multiple ways.
There’s a great sense of richness when you mix textures and patterns – especially when it comes to winter dressing. Street fashion just happens to teach you how to do it well.
A faux shearling coat looks smart and will make you feel warm and snug. Choose a white polo neck to add some luxe to your weekend wear. Remember to keep your other fashion pieces neutral so that they will be easy to mix in with the rest of the outfit.
A grey wool coat is a must-have staple this season. Work the mommy chic look with jeans and trainers for a casual effect.
