Classics that you can wear now and later

Classics that you can wear now and later

I thought that I would talk today about classics that you can wear now and later. January and the beginning of February are very difficult months of the year. It is still cold and we are probably still wearing our puffers, thick winter coats and woollies. Yet maybe it is time to think of updating some of our classics. I have chosen a pair of wide-leg jeans as I have just bought myself a new pair. As I am quite tall I find that wide jeans suit me. I know that this style is not for everybody so I have added a variety of different options in the images below.

A short padded jacket is always useful for late winter and early spring. Waistcoats are very fashionable at the moment. They are an ideal way to add an extra layer without too much bulk. I have just purchased the one I have included in the collage. It is from Cos and I hope to include it in my next photo shoot. I have added some warmer tones to navy. I find that navy is one of the best neutrals because it can be paired with both warm and cool colours. It is a colour that I use as the basis of lots of my outfits.

Details of above:

    Love your options today. It is hard to see spring in the stores when we have at least two more months of cold and rain here in Seattle area. I think our weather might be similar to yours.

    I live on the west coast of Canada-it is cold damp and gray during these winter months. I love the extra warmth your options provide, and in such pleasing colours.
