It may be officially Spring here in London but the temperature is still cold or very cold depending on the wind. Are you getting bored of your winter clothes, I certainly am. So I thought that I would show you how to restyle an old coat. I decided to team my old MaxMara coat with a pair of classic jeans by Levi, a pair of chunky boots plus my new grey hoodie from Arket. I think that it was the addition of the modern trendy boots and the oversized long-line hoodie that updated my coat to 2021.
I bought my coat back in the mid-nineties. It was shortened and the shoulder pads removed a few years ago. You can see me wearing it back in 2016. It just goes to show that if you buy good quality clothes they do last the test of time. I reckon that it is nearly vintage. Selfridges and Harvey Nichols do have a good selection of MaxMara coats, but they are pricey.
I never thought that I would be wearing a hoodie unless I was going to the gym. How times have changed. I now have several in my wardrobe and consider them everyday wear. They are comfortable, practical and if you follow bloggers on Instagram classified as trendy!
I don’t often use a bag these days. All one seems to need these days is a mask, sanitiser, keys, phone and a credit card. These I mostly keep in a bum bag strapped around my waist for easy access. However I did feel that the handbag upgraded the look. My black bag is by Longchamp. Another investment purchase that will last me for years.
