Black Pleated Leather Midi Skirt & Blue Maxi Coat

Cobalt Blue Coat, Black Leather Pleated Skirt | Fake Fabulous

Today I'm sharing an outfit I wore last week when the weather was a little warmer and my layers were down below 5... 😀
3 to be exact.
It was almost a WARM winters day (10 degrees) and it felt great!

This vintage blue coat is made of wool BUT it's not exactly warm.
Okay for a mild winter day but no use at all during the colder snaps.
Adding layers underneath this coat is difficult (not a lot of sleeve space) and I don't have a gilet that looks good over the top.
(I'm daydreaming about a long faux fur waistcoat!)

I'm making the most of the warmer weather on this day, that's for sure.
One thermal layer and then a knitted dress over the top (See the full dress HERE) then my pleather midi skirt.
(Oh, how I love this skirt.)
It's warm.
AND.... wipe clean!!

Thick tights and my sock boots finished things off nicely.

I think Cobalt blue is such an amazing colour.
It's so vibrant and beautiful.

Unfortunately, it's not such a great colour for my skin tone BUT I wear it anyway.

Is there a colour that you love that doesn't really suit you?
I'd love to hear about it!

  1. I had a look at the full dress - I love it. The cobalt blue is a fabulous colour and it looks flattering on you. Lise

    1. Thank you so much Lise!
      You are very kind and I'm glad you like my old dress :o)

  2. Totally agree that cobalt blue is a fabulous colour but can't agree that it's not flattering on you!. You look gorgeous in your coat and I love it combined with the geometric patterned dress-as-a-pullover and the pleated skirt, lots of interesting details, shapes, textures!. And I love your lightning brooch and earrings, so fab!
    You rock accessorizing!
    And sometimes I've tried to wear yellow (which I think it makes me look sick) and it worked whereas it's not near my face.

    1. I love yellow too Monica and I feel it makes me look a bit green around the gills!! Hahaha
      Although a warm and vibrant yellow is hard to resist.
      Thank you for your kind comment.

  3. I also wore these colors yesterday on the blog! Fantastic look!

    1. There must be something in the air Nancy!! Hahahaha.... I'm popping over for a look. XXX

  4. What a gorgeous outfit, Samantha! I love that cobalt blue - and I like it on you! I think cobalt is one of those colours that looks good on everyone.

    1. Do you think so Sheila? I'm useless when it comes to my own colours to be honest :o)
      I can spot a bad colour match on other people but not on myself.
      Thank you for your feedback and kind words.

  5. This one is Fabulous! The blue coat makes the outfit absolutely delightful.
