Classic Black Coat & Python Print Bag

Bags/ Coats/ Romantique

Black empire line coat and snakeskin bag

As much as I love my statement winter coats, I’m glad I have my classic black coat to fall back on, especially when I’m wearing striking dresses and accessories.

In my opinion, every girl should own an empire line coat, which is a high waisted coat, emphasized by a horizontal seam. The reasons why are simple:

  • The high waist creates the illusion of endlessly long supermodel legs
  • The girly shape of the coat takes years off your age
  • The A shaped coat looks  great both with dresses / skirts and trousers

Pair a black, classic coat with sexy animal print accessories that pop and stand out! Subtle, understated coats and dresses just scream for an injection of glamour with a sexy snakeskin bag. After all, 2013 is the Chinese year of the snake.

I am wearing: High waisted black coat from Max & Co, ankle boots from Goertz, scallop mock collar from COS and tights from Falke. Make sure the faux python print is made of good quality like my leather bag from Alberta Ferretti or you’ll look like Kim Kardashian!

Fashion Sisters: Swapping Style

Coats/ Denim/ Rebel Alexa/ Romantique/ Wardrobe

Zebra print denim and red gingham coat

Romantique and Rebel – that’s us, sisters with different styles.

Rebel’s signature look is  minimalistic and boyish. Her go-to pieces are biker jackets, high heels, skinny jeans, pop colours, bold pattern and Joan Crawford movies.

Romantique lives for cats, pastel colours, vichy gingham pattern, skirts, ballerinas and ruffled blouses.

So what happens when we swap roles for the day? This is exactly what we wanted to find out when we met in Berlin last week.

I styled Rebel in a red butter-wouldn’t-melt vichy gingham coat straight out of Grimm’s fairytale Little Red Riding Hood, from Max & Co. Completing the outfit is a romantic straw bag from Le Voyage en Panier, pointy flats from AGL Attilio Giusti Leombruni, powder blue shirt from Geox and black denim from J Brand. A true Romantique outfit, don’t you think?

Rebel took me out of my comfort zone by styling me much more boldly  than my usual:  I am wearing graphic skinny jeans in zebra print from H&M, metallic sweater from Set, black ballet pumps from Rouge Bunny Rouge and red cross body bag from Picard.

I felt quite empowered in this unusual outfit! This  little foray into Rebel territory opened my mind to new fashion horizons. I think I might be dipping my toe back into this pool, stay tuned!
