My Top Classic
If there’s one thing that lockdown has taught us, it’s what to prioritise. For me, it’s taught me to appreciate the small things in life and to have respect for our health and the health of others. As a family, we have definitely been rethinking how we spend our time, how we approach work and how we spend our money.
If like me your lifestyle has changed somewhat during lockdown, you may also be thinking about your style choices. I’m definitely not in a position to splash thousands every month on high fashion and let’s be honest, we haven’t really got anywhere to wear our best designers anyway!
As we draw into the back end of 2020, I’ve been looking at coats and outwear a lot differently too. Granted, being pregnant means I can justify a few new pieces in my wardrobe but on the whole when it comes to accessories and coats (where you don’t have to worry so much about covering a baby bump) I’ve been looking more towards classic styles and shapes that will last for a few years to come.
In the past, I’ve been guilty of buying in to fast fashion: £20 duster coats, polyester jumpers, you name it. But they don’t last. You’ll get a couple of months wear out of them, max, and don’t forget about the damage to the environment. So today I’m sharing my top 9 trend proof pieces that will stand the test of time.
