Don’t know about you but when it comes to key pieces for my everyday style I’m always a nightmare. I never buy until I have found the one that perfectly fits my idea of perfection. I’ve been looking for the most beautiful purple coat to wear all day long for like years and when I finally saw this beauty by one of my favourite Greek brands, LOLA it was love at first sight! Honestly talking, the moment I saw it I just clicked on the buy it button without a second thought! It’s everything I wanted and even more! Chic enough to wear on my way to the office, casual enough to combine with my sneakers when shopping and in the best ever purple to wear when going out for a drink with friends. It sits perfectly on my body and even matches my new shades (yes, I even think of that when choosing a garment I will be wearing all day long!)
I am showing you today how I’m wearing it (when the weather finally gets colder in Athens) on my way to meetings. I have combined it with a beautiful pair of burgundy high-heel Oxfords, a pair of structured trousers (they’re amazing, aren’t they?), my latest it-tote (soooo soft and spacious, I feel I can’t live without it) and a beautiful bow-tie shirt. While browsing the net I also came across this cute cappuccino cup (ordering it after I get my November pay-check) and that gorgeous rose-gold evil eye ring which I have already added in my Santa Claus list!
I will definitely be wearing it with my black fedora hat just like Carla from the Fashion Through my Eyes did here or paired with my favourite jeans like Didi Hadid did. I really love how that purple coat is combined with all those colorful shades in the last look spotted in London but I’m not sure I’ll be trying it as I’m more of a dark attitude when it comes to winter clothing (perhaps on a cold Spring day, who knows!)
So, girls, are you like me? Do you buy key pieces after an exhausting search or do you just follow trends and buy what everybody else is wearing?
