I know, it’s not the weekend yet, but I simply couldn’t resist of sharing my favorite winter off-duty outfits today. Well some of them are already transitional outfits. Anyway, here they are, my #5 Chic Off-duty outfits I’m wearing now and my best tips on how to wear denim on denim in 2018. Yes, I finally got my first denim jacket.
Believe it or not, I have never had a denim jacket before. I just got my first denim jacket, and I simply can’t stop wearing it. Obviously, I had to try the denim on denim fashion trend first. And share a glimpse of my first attempt straight away with you, the Brunette Squad. So here it is my chic, fashionable denim off-duty transitional outfit. Together with 4 other winter outfits of course. After all, winter only stated here and that, faux fur hat is a must now.
#5 CASUAL WINTER OUTFITS
Don’t worry; I will come back to my denim jacket and how I tried to pull off the denim on denim fashion trend. Right after, we have a look at my #5 casual winter outfits I love to wear now. After all, this is what you came for in the first place, right? To see what else you can wear this winter.

Ps. Don’t think you lack fashion style if you ran out of winter outfits. And you have been wearing same clothes in the same way for the last two weeks. The thing is that this winter has been long. Way too long. And every fashion gal is feeling the same right now. We all want to start wearing our fancy new heels from the spring summer 2018 collection (by the way, have you seen my spring summer 18 shopping list already? If not, check it here.). But we can’t really. Luckily there are few things from the latest collection you can start wearing now. And yes, one of those is a denim jacket.
IF I CAN’T WALKING ON THE SUN, AT LEAST I CAN WALK IN YELLOW
THE YELLOW BLOUSE, BLUE JEANS AND FAUX FUR HAT
Another piece straight from the Spring Summer 2018 Collection you can wear at the end of the winter. Read in the snowstorm that just hit us. Is the yellow silk blouse. Wear it with blue jeans. This is on a day off of course. When on duty opt for dark denim. In case you missed, I just wrote how to wear dark denim for work here. Oh and don’t forget the hat. A faux fur hat instead of a beret. Ps. I’m sharing why we wear faux fur hat instead of fashionable beret tomorrow.
YELLOW DRESS, PRINCESS COAT, OTK BOOTS AND A FAUX FUR HEADBAND
Good news, snow and cold aside, you can start wearing the IT dress of the season right now. I have been wearing my Escada yellow dress on repeat ever since I got it. Under the coat of course. And together with my over the knee boots. Plus never without a hat or a headband.
Go here to see exactly how to wear a yellow dress in winter.
NO ONE SAID WE HAVE STOPPED WEARING A BERET
ALL IN BLACK WITH A WHITE BERET AND YELLOW BAG
Again, a flash of yellow. You know, I’m wearing yellow with a reason. Oh and not just because it’s one of the IT colours of the new season. Ps. Find out all the colors that are in fashion for spring summer 2018 in my Fashion Report here. But because I like to believe the spring will come sooner if I start wearing some colours. So here it is, a pop of yellow in my chic black winter outfit.
Ha, funny thing. Even though I love wearing black, in fact, all in black is my second on the go outfit (next to dark denim, black top and camel coat – check here to see this outfit), I haven’t shared my chic black outfits on the blog yet. Ps. Let me know if you want to find out more about how I wear black in winter in the comments below.
Anyway, back to this chic black winter outfit. Wear your skinny black jeans, with black sock boots, short black coat (this one is from Escada), and white beret. No, we are not over the berets just yet. And of course, grab a chic yellow bag. I got mine from Escada.
SPRING IS COMING – THE TRANSITIONAL OUTFITS
I told you, the spring will come if you wear more colours.
COZY CAMEL SWEATER, PRINCESS COAT, BLUE JEANS AND SNEAKERS
Surely, light blue jeans are not the most fashionable pair of jeans you could have, but hey, this outfit is a mid-seasonal classic off-duty outfit. Show me a legit fashion girl who doesn’t wear this outfit every season. Ps. In case you already wore this outfit this season, then swap your old sneakers for the funky ugly pair. I’m doing this for the next time. You know, I actually lost these pastel pink sneakers I’m wearing here. So I decided to buy an extra pair of ugly sneakers. In pink of course. Although those in white are on my shopping list too.
DENIM JACKET AND DARK DENIM PANTS
Finally, the most prominent of my off-duty transitional outfits. The denim on denim outfit. Not to say anything more here. I mean, this outfit deserves its own big title.
MY FIRST DENIM ON DENIM LOOK
As said, this is my first time wearing denim on denim. You have seen me wearing suede on suede many times before. Ps. my 2018 winter suede on suede outfit is coming on Brunette from Wall Street soo. You can check my previous one here though. Yet never denim on denim.
Truth to be told, I have mixed feelings about this outfit. Don’t get me wrong I loved it. The feeling was right, and it looks great. But I feel I need to wear it again to be able to give you more advice on how to pull off denim on denim trend in 2018.
Nevertheless, I’m sharing where you can shop this outfit today.
SHOP AND WEAR MY STYLE
Be sure to save, pin and print this fashion cheat sheet too. And share it with that friend of yours who loves to wear denim on denim, but looks, you know, sloppy instead of sensational in her denim outfit.
Starting with my new denim jacket. I bought this denim on a budget as I didn’t know whether I will like it or not. Not something I would normally do. You know I believe only in quality. But I really wasn’t sure in all of this denim on denim trend. Besides I knew this denim jacket from H&M is actually quite good. Regardless the low price. At least my friends who got it before me keep praising it.
So I decided I give it a try. Luckily, as it turned out as good as my friends swore it was. Anyway, you can try it by yourself. You can shop this H&M jacket for only $39.99 here. But better hurry. Now that the buzz about this jacket is all around the Wall Street, you know the Brunette’s Squad can’t stop talking about it, this jacket will run out of stock soon.
You know these jeans very well. I also wore it in my last blog post. In case you haven’t read it. Read it here. It’s about how to wear dark denim for work. Well, it’s only Thursday today.
Whatsoever these jeans are from A.P.C. Shop them here.
Also from my previous blog posts. The black sock boots. Good news. These black sock boots from Elena Iachi are on sale now. Get them here before the sale ends.
After my first denim on denim attempt, I must say I don’t think this denim outfit needs any accessory at all. Still, as a bag and gloves are a must, my advice is to go for something that matches the dark denim. That is if you go for light denim on dark denim as I did this time.
DOUBLE BREASTED COAT
Well, there is one advice regarding the denim on denim trend I must share with you. Be sure to wear your denim with something soft and pastel at the end of the winter. I mean it’s still too cold to wear your denim jacket on its own. And an overcoat is still a must. So make sure you pick the right one. The one that doesn’t overshine the denim underneath. I’m wearing my off-duty pastel double-breasted coat from Weekend Maxmara. Shop Maxmara coat here.
MORE WINTER FASHION AND MORE INSPIRATION
So, yes, this are the off-duty winter outfits I love wearing now. Surely these are not all of them. You can find more of my winter outfits here. And this one here when it gets cold again. As it goes for the transitional outfits, check them among my spring outfits here. By the way, what do you think about my first denim on denim outfit? Do you think I failed or did just fine for the first time?
