An Outfit Idea for When Spring Hasn’t Decided if It Will Stay or Not

Not completely Spring in your neck of the woods? Your city had some warm days where you could get away with a sweat top, but now it’s back to plain cold? Look on the bright side of things. This season our favorite designers had us in mind when they whipped up a bevvy of colorful outerwear options and unseasonal fur coats. Remember, we dropped seasonal dressing a few years ago because normal weather patterns are a thing of the past, and, it’s a fact that many of us have become globe-setters – making sure that we attend every fashion and lifestyle event across the globe and sharing every moment of it on social media. So one day we might be in Jamaica where it is a sunny 81˚F, and two days later in New York where it is currently 46˚F and where a multicolor dream coat like the Valentino one that I wore During PFW becomes a wise essential and as sweet (and colorful) as a packet of tropical flavored lifesavers. Not a fur person, there are tons of amazing faux fur options as well as an incredible array of coats and jackets in other fabrications. You choose and make it fun.

Globe-setter outerwear sorted, what outfit will you wear under that fabulous coat? If we’ve been friends for sometime, you’ll know that I’m a huge fan of seventies-inspired style (born in 1976, and I can’t get the era out of my system). For those of you who’ve only discovered ATPB, I’ll confess to you right away that I’m having a field day with the 70s style mini-mania ubiquitous across all fashion categories at the moment. As illustrated by my PFW outfit, I’ve got my clogs, suede skirt, turtleneck and satchel bag all on fleek (slang for amazing or cool). Are you a fan of the era? Are you always game to embrace a new trend? Love suede, a great clog? Then here are some options for you. Let me know what you think, and if you have any juicy suggestions for me.
