Whether you are out and about with the children, meeting up with family, or looking for a weekend go-to, your off duty wardrobe should remain should comfy and timeless but with a little edge. The key is to choose modern separates that will never date: classic leather jacket, skinnies, flats, and jumper. The off duty cool look is easy to create and manage.
Start with a biker jacket. This season it comes in softer textures of leather, elegant cut, and interesting details from light studs and zips to dual textures, or coloured fabric from classic black to white or wine. A timeless leather jacket is a wardrobe must. Pair it with skinnies, a simple jumper, and lace up sneakers and you have ready to go off duty look. A clever change of accessories — mid heels, statement necklace, and shoulder bag — will transform this outfit to a more formal look.
Other leather pieces for your casual wardrobe are a skirt or leggings — choose pieces to flatter your shape best and pair them with a knit or cotton top, and keep accessories to a minimum for an elegant, relaxed, look.
Off duty cool is all about easy elegance and simple key pieces will do the trick. A jumper and long sleeved tee-shirt are the staples to look for. They can be paired with skirts, trousers, or jeans, mid heels or flats. Less is more. Go for interesting textures and colours instead of overwhelming accessories. Style last season’s blazer with this season’s distressed jeans and a light knit. Finish off with low heels and you have another low-high relaxed look.
