I read in the paper yesterday that this week our capital looks set to be ‘battered by torrential rain and gales,’ with warnings of potential flooding. Sooooo, that’s a pretty big ‘no’ to Spring then, right?! At a time where I should be perusing the pastels in my wardrobe, I’m leaning heavily back towards the cashmere.
One colour I particularly feel weathers (for want of a better word) this unpredictable time of year well, is olive. Olive is one of the most versatile colours you can wear, being both cool and casual, whilst also being a while lot more forgiving than the predictable summer khaki options that are currently available en masse on every one of our high streets.
This show stopper of a trench coat is by the wonderfully talented Huishan Zhang, who I have long been a huge fan of. Combining both his Eastern heritage and Western design skills, the coat’s olive scallops are both powerful, yet pretty.
Worn with my high-waisted/wide-legged H&M black trousers, stripey Day Birger turtle neck (yup, back to those… Brrrrr…), my Jerome Dreyfuss circular bag, my Swedish Hasbeen’s clogs and my And Other Stories Sunglasses (a girl can hope…!) I am feeling as Springy as I possibly can right now! Even if I’m not loving this weather, this coat?! Olive you longtime…
