TRENCH SEASON

TRENCH | H&M TEE | AEO JEANS | ALEXANDRE BIRMAN HEELS | YSL BAG

Is there anything better than shopping for a new season? I think not…! Come spring or summer I get extremely excited to add more items to my wardrobe; specifically classic staples such as a chic coat or jacket. There’s something so sophisticated about owning one that demands the attention of a room and today’s piece is the epitome of that.
The trench I am wearing in today’s post stands out in colour and style and remains one of those versatile pieces I reach for daily because of how timeless it is. Other than the gorgeous colour contrast between the beige and brown, I love the asymmetrical hem and fit. So great paired with a dress and heels and can work so well with casual bottoms and sneakers. The possibilities are endless!
To let the trench take centre stage, I chose to keep the look within a neutral palette, which is sometimes the prettiest of palettes. It’s understated, yet universally appealing. Having worked with Steph Mouchie in the past, I was super excited to hear that they were introducing coats to their line. To shop the one I’m wearing click here.

THE MOTO JACKET

For those of you that have been following along on Sweet as Fiction know that my style stays consistent no matter what time of the year. It’s a bit elevated, always sticking to classics that be incorporated throughout each season; all in all: just chic. No matter what, my looks are put together with a bit of imperfection, which is how I like it.

When it comes to styling a look, I try to work around a piece that speaks to me. These are usually the investments; a bag or a coat and then I add accessories to elevate the look and tie it all together. Take this motto jacket for instance. It’s been an all time favourite of mine and I love finding new ways to wear it. It’s one of those pieces that work for most occasions and is incredibly versatile. It pairs so well with a white tee and ripped denim and can easily work just as well over a dress for that juxtaposition. It’s those classic pieces that are added to our wardrobe every season that just gets better with age. You can find the one I am wearing in today’s look here.

ALL WHITE

H&M TEE | WHITE JEANS | ROCKSTUD HEELSORA COAT | CHLOE NILE BAG

What better way to celebrate the beautiful weather than dressing in white! For the most part, I love wearing white head-to-toe, but I also love mixing it up by adding touches of neutrals for that hint of sophistication. Below are some tips on how to style all white this season:

CHOOSE LIGHT FABRICS

There’s nothing that compliments a tan better than an ‘all white’ look. It’s chic and it won’t draw in any extra heat. In order to look effortless (without thinking twice) look for pieces that are light and airy.

NEUTRAL ACCESSORIES

Add an accessory like these rock stud heels to finish off your look or a pair of nude heels (love these). They go with everything – plus they add length to your legs.

GO FOR CLASSICS

Nothing beats a classic white tee with good pair of white jeans. Choose a pair that flatters your body type and makes you feel amazing.

UTILIZE DIFFERENT TEXTURES

Don’t be afraid to mix textures; it adds dimension to your look and can look so chic when done right. Embroidered, lace and linen are my favourites.

Mixing whites with neutrals has always been my favourite combo. It creates that strong, yet understated impact, making it so universally appealing. Just love that! Adding yet another favourite: the beautiful cross-body bag from Chloe was the perfect finishing touch.
