I had always considered Topshop to be more suitable for the young and lithe than us more mature women. I think I might have been wrong.
I had a good internet browse the other day and to my surprise found several items that I liked very much. So in the spirit of exploration and trying new looks out on your behalf I ordered a couple of coats that I consider would suit any age.
I am wearing the Topshop pink coat (Can’t believe this is also now sold out. They do have similar styles in a brighter pink). I also found one at Boden. I am wearing it with my Winserlondon cream sweater from last season similar (reduced) and Winserlondon straight black trousers. Grey felt hat some years old similar at Nordstrom and John Lewis.
How I work the oversize look. What do you think of the oversize trend? Definitely for the tall and well built amongst us. Also a bit 80s with the large shoulders. According to the current autumn 2017 runway shows we will seeing much more of this silhouette for autumn. Maybe we need to get our eye accustomed to the changing “look” after so many seasons of skinny jeans and leggings.
I thought I would experiment with the new silhouette. This oversize mac is from Topshop. They offer a good range of similar styles . Teamed with my NYDJ jeans at JDWilliams and Nordstrom. Plus my Stan Smiths for a relaxed look.
Pink is a big colour trend for Spring. I am not necessarily a fan of following the latest trends nor do I adhere to the so called “rules or advice” for older women. I think you can wear pink at any age. The trick is how you wear pink. A smart pink coat may be the perfect way to tackle this trend.
The important criteria is the style. The same applies to grey hair. If you want to let your hair go grey feel free. If you fancy wearing pink go ahead. Just make sure that the style is modern and fresh and not “granny like” Even though you may be a granny as I am.
I am wearing a simple pink unstructured wool coat by Mango. (I just checked I can’t believe it is sold out already. I does say add to wish list. It has obviously been popular. It may come back into stock). My very comfortable Stan Smith’s Nordstrom and Topshop. Straight leg classic jeans (old and very comfy). Same style still available Nordstrom and JDWilliams
