Its gonna be a cool cool Christmas............. Of all my fashion looks that I create my favourite and most naturally inclined is "Laid back Cool". I usually achieve this by wearing something that I love and am most comfortable with and pair it with a more eclectic or seasonal piece.

Several examples of this would be my old rugged biker jacket which I would throw over a glitzy Christmas dress and off I'd go.... another an old 50s vintage mens tuxedo Jacket, that looks great day or night especially around Christmas.. I would again wear it with a short dress for evening or shorts or a mini for day wear. Another favourite look of mine is a dusky pink duster style 80s vintage coat which looks great with skinny jeans and can be worn day or night

I will showcase some of my favourite seasonal laid back looks below. Hope you like them.
