Wait, here me out. I know this outfit seems dramatic as f**k.
DOTS, FEATHERS, FLOORLENGTH COAT WORN LIKE A CAPE (which apparently is really envouge, like since 2013…)
Buuuut, if we take just parts of the outfit it can work for the office and not just for Fashion Week. For example the Skirt and turtleneck combination: add opaque black tights and sturdier shoes or black ballerinas and you’re good to go. If you wanna tone it down even more: Combine a solid black turtleneck with the flimsy skirt or the other way round, black skirt + the dotted turtleneck.
But beware of overdoing it, I think sticking to a monochrome look in all black is the safest option for the office here.
And now on to the FLOORLENGTH COAT WORN AS A CAPE
I think it looks amazing -in a photo- wouldn’t know how to wear that on a cold winter morning, but maybe it’s a fall look? When it’s not yet that cold and you can wear it open on your morning commute ?
And don’t get me started on how that white lining will look grimy after one or two wears out in the city…
Ahh to be a popstar with the opportunity and stylist to wear such outfits.
Anyways a girl can dream and sorry for going all KANYE WEST at you, but seriously that FLOORLENGTH COAT WORN AS A CAPE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I believe it’s getting colder in Europe so I think you need to cover up those legs, amirite ? And what’s better than a simple pair of jeans and one of my favourite pieces of clothing the white button down. And just look a the beautiful cut of the blouse, so long and awesome, nearly a tunic. Although I wouldn’t wear a distressed pair of jeans to the office.

Just as I was complaining to you guys a few weeks ago that I do not have a lot of button down outfits posted up here, I seem to only stumble upon pictures with delightful ensembles including button downs, so brace yourself in the next few weeks you gonna see a lot of them :-)
This one stands out though, the vibrant colour of the oversized button down, the intricate details on the skirt, which make it a beautiful classic piece with a twist. I am actually always trying to look for piece like that to give my classic look in the office a special twist and make them less boring.
And sometimes I succeed, unfortunately it was 10 years ago so the beautiful pencil skirt with delicate beading from FCUK London does not fit anymore and I believe I got rid of it some years ago, but I still remember it vividly. Beige cloth, looked like linen, and a pink flower made out of pearls on it with rows of small pearls beaded on it in the colour of the flower and orange as well. Okay so I guess my memory is not that vivid anymore…
But yeah classic pieces with a twist rule.
Do you have got any special classics? Where did you find them, high street or Designer Piece? And most important of all, do they still fit? :-)
