To Atlantis

Wearing: Viktoria + Woods 'Atlantis' coat (via Aurelia Boutique), Pink Stitch 'Ellen' dress, PeepToe 'Miss Elegance' shoes

With the colder months now upon us the most important winter staple in every girl's wardrobe is an amazing jacket or coat, and as I've said before Australian label Viktoria + Woods has the most incredible collection of both. In this post I am wearing the Atlantis Coat from their Autumn 13 'Symphonic' collection, which is constructed in the most luxurious combination of wool with leather trim and feels just as amazing as it looks. I am totally convinced that I will be wearing it for years to come, and the classic shape and construction means it will never go out of style.

Another must-have winter staple is a versatile LBD. I love this one from Pink Stitch, it's a great shape and the leatherette collar and sleeve cuffs add the perfect detail and contrast. The great thing about a dress like this is it's super easy to adapt to any occasion, and would be just as suited to a work day, weeknight drinks or weekend party with a simple swap of shoes!

Speaking of which - these PeepToe heels are absolutely gorgeous. Aptly named 'Miss Elegance', they easily add a touch of sophistication to any outfit. I've been wearing them to work with black waxed jeans and find they look just as great in that combination as this; I love the versatility of the style and the combination of suede and leather with gold detailing is simply stunning.
