Steal her look

  1. Head scarf: silk and satin scarfs is an easy way to style up your look whilst keeping yourself warm.
  2. Sunglasses: stand out with sunglasses in cool tones of blue and purple to complement your skin complexion.
  3. Jacket: finish off your look with a stylish leather jacket or a teddy coat with deep pockets to keep your phone and bank cards in.
  4. Palazzo trousers: wear your favourite flowy trousers by layering with warm spanx and leggings underneath.
  5. Boots: add your own playful spin to a loungewear ensemble by pairing it with leather or suede boots for a comfort-chic inspired style.

Steal his look

  1. Mix and match: to style up coordinating tracksuit jacket and trousers differently look for styles in bold stripes and prints.
  2. Headgear: be unconventional by swopping out a beanie or bucket hat with a durag headscarf with a heavy coat and distressed denim jeans.
  3. Jewellery: pair a headscarf or beanie with drop earrings that have cross and heart charms for a unique look.
  4. Sneakers: finish your look with colourful sneakers in soft pastel hues or bright highlighter pinks and acid yellow.
