I wanted to share some of my absolute wardrobe favorites with you even though it means showing pictures of myself,  which oh well I am still not entirely comfortable with … I know I need to get over that.

– First off my absolute favorite coats, I love love love these two.

Coats are such a big theme every winter season and after years of buying compromises I decided to invest into Stella McCartney and I haven’t regretted it. I just love her tailoring. The faux fur Bryce coat is from last year, I like that it has a bit more of a glam factor, it’s a special thing to put on.

The Nayv Fiamma coat is a bit more ‘serious’, I like the strong revers and it’s the kind of wardrobe piece that will give you extra confidence. Funny how a coat changes how you carry yourself. The Fiamma also comes in beige which looks amazing when combined with an all white look, I went for navy because it suits me better and is easy to combine.

Another thing, both of these are super warm !

– My favorite denim for winter are these high waisted Mother Denim jeans, I feel that it’s easier to work the silhouette in winter with skinny jeans against voluptuous coats and boots. These Mother’s are particularly soft, I really can’t deal with uncomfortable tight things anymore. I als like J Brand.

– A black cashmere turtleneck by Equipment. Really a wardrobe staple for winter, goes with everything, I think they’re overpriced but still the nicest cut I could find.

– My Jimmy Choo Brody booties in suede. Oh ! I was crazy about these when I saw them on Emmanuelle Alt. Dreamt about them for a long time. They fit like a glove, and are super comfortable, the heel is quite low. I don’t wear the in the daytime so much because at this point it’s mostly flats for me but they are my favorite heel when going out.

– Almost forgot my little Falabella shoulder bag. Not an essential I would say but just the right amount of a small sparkly piece I wanted for winter, sometimes that stands out nicely against my pretty minimal wardrobe. The faux leather factor made it a better conscience buy too.

 

So here you go, some if my true favorites for Fall/Winter.

Just a little side note. These are of course very luxurious pieces and I don’t want to suggest that you need luxury pieces to look nice. I do think that at some point it makes sense to invest into more long-lasting quality pieces, a ‘buy less but better’ kind of thing, that’s what I am trying for myself. There are great lower priced coat options by COS and Filippa K and many more. For middle to higher priced I also love Joseph (really nicely cut), FWSS, Nili Lotan (only seen it on Garance and loved it), Max Mara for an amazing classic.

And here comes my related shopping gallery.
