Same outfit, two ways. The concept takes you from office to evening and is as easy as a simple change in outerwear (or for more formal occasions, a change in footwear – metallic Manolo BB pumps or a sleek evening sandal).

Statement coats were all over the Autumn 2018 runway shows back in February/early March (in all four cities) and this trench by Massimo Dutti hits all of the right points: Prince of Wales checks, pops of colour, 70s-style lapels and understated details. Until we get out of this winter weather, coats are still a must for daywear, and pairing the pastels with darker shades creates a colour-popping contrast.

I’m going through a blazer moment right now, and I fell in love with this peak-lapelled velvet number because of its Tom Ford s/s 2018 runway feel to it (minus the hot pink hue!). Blazers are foolproof for evenings and pairing a strong masculine piece with a feminine slip dress is one of my favourite combinations. The mix in textures elevates the look (velvet, evident from the runways, is here to stay) and can work just as well with a pair of dark skinnies and a slinky camisole.

P.S. Yes, navy and black do go together.
