Eighties are back and this Topshop coat with mutton sleeves is a must have.

Did you hear? Eighties are back with their mutton sleeves trend. Great news, right? Mutton sleeves are actually much older than that. They started already at the beginning of the 19th century and since then they just keep coming back once in while, like any other good trend. Mutton sleeves are the ones that starts with an accumulation of a lot of fabric slightly below the shoulder and than get tight again at the wrist area. You can now see this trend popping up everywhere and Topshop even came up with an amazing winter coat. When I saw it first, I thought it looks rather enormous and just baggy. But when I tried this Topshop coat I could see how chic it was. There are many different blue coats, but this one with mutton sleeves is my favourite.


Topshop coat with mutton sleeves

I love the way it emphasise the hourglass figure, even if you don’t have one.  it looks great open as well, but I really like to make the belt quite tight. It has a great length, just below knees. That makes it a great coat for dresses and knee length skirts. My favourite look is to wear it with a turtleneck sweater underneath, ideally white or off white like this one or this one. The white makes the coat stand out a bit more. Simple blue jeans and Sergio Rossi boots makes the whole look very effortless and chic. The winter headband is just cherry on the cake, however I can imagine you might like to choose to wear it with one of those big winter scarfs, like this one.

When it comes to coats, I always follow my rule to always go for good quality over a trend. Last year it was all about classics with a beige coat. This year it is Topshop coat which combines both the trend with the quality. In the end of the day, if you choose well, you have a beautiful coat that lasts for at least few years.

These luxury slippers with sheepskin are so cosy you will never take them off

I want to start this post with a question to you. What do you wear on your feet when you are at home? Do you wear shoes, or slippers? Or perhaps neither? When I lived in Spain, I was walking barefoot in the house most of the time. But here in UK, I am constantly cold. For a long time, I couldn’t find anything that would look nice and chic and as well be warm and comfortable. Then I got an opportunity to review these Morlands luxury slippers and when I saw the options on their website, I was sold. I finally felt like all my requirements were met. Pretty (tick), comfortable (tick), warm (tick), luxury (tick). And there is one point extra as well – they have a rubber sole. Carrying around a toddler makes me now far much more confident that I will not slip down the stairs.

Morlands luxury slippers

Now let me tell you something more about these luxury slippers. The outside is made of beautiful and thick suede and has a rubber sole. The inside is fully lined with luxurious, high-quality sheepskin. When you walk in them you feel like your feet are not even touching the floor. That is how soft and cosy they are, and I don’t want to take them off.

You can choose from many different styles and beautiful colours. I chose mine to be in chesnut shade as it gives even more luxurious feeling. They run a tiny bit big. I am between sizes, which normally it means I would go for the bigger one. However, it was the right choice to get in the end the smaller ones.

You can choose from a contemporary line or more traditional, heritage line. They also offer wide selection for men as well as range for outdoors. You can buy them directly from Morlands web site and they will be delivered to you in a nice box with each shoe in its own dust bag and with a shoe horn. A little touch to enhance the quality.

So do you already have a cosy Christmas present? Just saying…… 😉

 

Have a lovely day

6 simple rules on how to wear shorts in winter and look fabulous

Do you also love wearing shorts? Yes, silly question, I know, who wouldn’t. Shorts must be one of the most comfortable piece of clothing. Maybe alongside with a good t-shirt. Or ideally together. But summer is over, and we are back in trousers. Well, but don’t put your favourite pair in the attic just yet, as now I can show you how to wear shorts also in the winter. And here is a guide how to make sure you will still look classy and chic.

How to wear shorts in the winter

  • The length. Choose those shorts that are as far as possible from hot pants. The length should be ideally somewhere between 5cm and 15cm below your bottom. You can also opt for longer, up to your knees, but then it is more like bermudas. (but why not, they look good in winter). Anything shorter than that and you can look cheap.
  • The style. Even though in summer you might like to wear tight shorts, avoid these in winter. Rather go for wide legged, as it will look much better under the coat.
  • Fabric is very important. Choose heavier fabric, or at least heavier looking fabric. Ideal is tweed or wool. That means, leave your denim ones and silk ones in the wardrobe for next summer.
  • Go for a darker colour. Bright colours don’t look that good. Avoid orange, pink or yellow (unless it is mustard yellow)
  • Wear it with dark tights. These can be with or without pattern. Just make sure you will not clash the pattern on the tights with the one on the shorts (if they have one).
  • What to wear it with. High heels pumps (like these) or boots. Both under the knee and over the knee are fine. Choose a chunky sweater and a longer coat, if it is really cold, or nice preppy top, like this one and short jacket. You can also add nice scarf without pattern, so that you don’t have too much going on.

 

 

Now, that you know how to wear shorts in winter, just choose the right one for you. There are now loads of different options for shorts that are suitable for wearing in the winter. Just choose the ones you like below, and you can be the star of the casual Friday.

Bag: Chanel, Shorts: Club Monaco , Jacket: Sandro, Top: Michael Kors (similar here), Shoes: Gianvito Rossi (similar here and here), Brooch: Chanel (similar here) , Sunglasses: Prada (similar here), Earrings: Chanel (similar here)
