INSPIRATION AND ADVICE
HOW TO DO RAIN OR SHINE STYLE
By Maybelle Morgan, January 14, 2018
It’s cold and dark, biblically raining one second and mercilessly sleeting the next. Right now, we don’t blame you if your wardrobe resembles a Bear Grylls survival kit more than anything else. But sometimes, what you need at the end of a pretty bleak style tunnel is a shining light, that in this case, is manifesting itself as some damn fine weather-appropes outfit inspiration. And serving it in a major way is German blogger Caroline Daur bringing Blade Runner vibes to your everyday looks…
Through thick or thin, the trench has been a long-serving member of your wardrobe since day one. And now, all over the FW17 runways (we see you, Calvin Klein) and putting on a squeaky show on our big screens in last year’s Blade Runner 2049, the quintessentially classic staple has had a futuristic plastic-fantastic update.
It’s all about the transparent vinyl trench in tinted stone, but the key to make it work for daytime is to keep the rest of your outfit toned down to bring out the gloss. Take inspo from Caro Daur and layer a short heritage check trench underneath the clear coating to let the timeless print peep out from underneath.
For your base layer, start with a gray logo tee and stirrup skinny jeans to keep it understated, and add chunky platform boots for your weekend strolls or white retro slingbacks for a more dressy affair. Then finish with a dusty rose fanny pack slung around the whole lot to add a subtle dose of color and bring the look together.
