The designers behind label Surafina speak to my need to dress like it’s winter but not swelter because I live in Queensland.
It helps that they are based in Queensland. It helps a lot.
They understand that we can have super chilly nights and mornings and then glorious sunny days that require us to un-layer but still looked dress for the season.
Each piece works as part of any outfit but two, three or all of them together makes for a winter outfit with interest because of the details.
I wore this outfit last week to the opening of Good Food Month in Brisbane (I was a guest of Cathay Pacific). It had been a cold week, this night not so cold especially inside with a lot of bodies.
I didn’t feel too warm but the addition of the cape and the fur collar gave my look winter elements – just right for the modern vibe of the Fortitude Valley venue – Kwan Brothers.
The leggings are a wet-look fabric – a great way to get a leather look without the cost. Do buy down a size or two though. They stretch easily and will fall down or be saggy and baggy if you don’t.
I’ve worn the cape with just a white shirt and jeans and it works equally as well as the combination above. The fur collar is such a great winter accessory for just about any outfit. I just love it.
The ring was a birthday gift from Mr SY and the personalised clutch is beautiful. A word of warning if you are ordering one for yourself. I ordered mine in October last year. It arrived more than six months later. You might have more luck but I thought I should let you know that the wait time for mine was much longer than the advised delivery time.
The boots are from Zoe Kratzmann’s current collection. I love that they have a bit of a heel and a dressy pointy toe for a night out but at a height I could stand at a networking event all night without my feet suffering.
Like a layered winter outfit that’s comfy as well?
