Focus on statement outerwear
A standout coat can make any look work. I found this coat in a second hand shop but you’d never know that. The pop of leopard print stops it looking dowdy; giving it a serious seventies-style feel instead. And the best thing about finding a statement coat? The rest of your outfit can be super simple – like these boots I’ve worn so many times the sole’s almost coming away.
