Winter outfit • Layering a Coat over a Denim Jacket

Winter Outfit | Layered Denim Jacket and Wool Coat | Fake Fabulous

It was another mild winter's day (with a hint of spring in the air) and I really wanted to wear my old denim jacket.
A denim jacket is a spring staple, and spring means hope and positivity!

Unfortunately, despite being mild, it's still much too cold for a single denim layer.
Spring has a while to go yet!
So, I popped a checked coat over the top of my denim jacket for a practical (but fun) layered look.

When I was out and about I had the denim jacket buttoned up to the top, the collar popped and a silk scarf tucked in at my neck.
This was a nice look but I wanted to show you my underlayer (and necklaces) in these photos.

I'm completely obsessed with layering coats over jackets and jackets over (and under) gilets at the moment.
It's such a great way to keep extra warm and get more use out of your clothes!
It also feels (to me) just a little bit 'cooler' than a basic coat.

Id love to know if spring is on its way where you live?

    1. I love snowboots!
      I think they look very cool, even when it's not snowing... :)
      I used to have an amazing white pair with chunky yellow laces. I miss those boots and might need to Google to see if I can find something similar on ebay!! 😉

  2. It's been feeling like Spring since the second week of January 😢 I've barely worn any of my thick winter jackets. Love your layered look.

    1. What?!?!!
      Wow... That is a little sad isn't it? Chunky coats and layers are so comforting and much as I love spring it's the looking forward to it that is the most fun. That feeling of wondering when it will be warm enough to peel off a layer!
      Spring has come too soon for you Loree! ❤️

  3. I love this look - you are the queen of layering! The weather is slightly spring-y here, but it's still rather chilly.

    1. Springy... Yes!
      Just enough to bring hope but not too much to peel off the cosy layers. 😊

  4. I'm totally in love with this fab layering and how lovely you look in this outfit!. Love this plaid over denim outfit (posted something similar yesterday! ;DDD Great minds!)
    I think that your layering tips are great and totally agree that denim looks spring-like, casual and modern, but you make it look elegant and cool too!, so chic!
