Today’s outfit is my version of dressing down a formal coat.
I like to find multiple ways to wear my clothes, especially outerwear, and in this post I dressed down quite a formal coat in a casual style.
Dressing Down A Formal Coat
I have already featured this Zara coat a couple of weeks ago in this previous outfit post where I paired the coat with some jeans and mid heels for a more dressed up daytime look. Today I have layered it over black jeans and a tee and finished off the look with my trainers.
Trainers have become a really popular footwear choice over the last few years and for a good reason. They are so comfortable! There are many different styles of trainers available now and can even make an outfit look quite polished whilst remaining easy to wear and comfy! This would be a great look for a day when you are on your feet all day or just want to add an on trend feel to your look.
Times have changed when it comes to fashion. Trends come and go very quickly and there are no longer so many ‘rules’ surrounding what to wear and a lot of people opt to combine smart and casual items into their everyday looks. For example, a few years ago you wouldn’t find so many people wearing trainers with suits as they were more generally related as a professional or formal way to dress but now it’s a very trendy thing to combine the two. I always say fashion rules are there to be broken and I love wearing trainers with all sorts of clothes including dresses and skirts.
I hope you like the look and let me know your thoughts on dressing down a formal coat in the comments section below.
