Chic off duty cool

Whether you are out and about with the kids, meeting up with family or on a weekend away, your off duty wardrobe should remain comfy, timeless but with a little edge.

The key is to choose modern separates that will never date: classic leather jacket, skinnies, flats or jumper. The off duty cool look is easy to create and manage.

Start with a biker jacket. This season it comes in softer textures of leather, elegant cuts and interesting details from light studs, zips, to dual textures or coloured fabric from classic black to white or wine. A timeless leather jacket is a wardrobe must. Pair it with skinnies, simple jumper and lace up sneakers and you have a ready-to go off duty look. A clever change of accessories will bring this look to a more formal wear: mid heels, statement necklace and shoulder bag.

Other leather pieces for your casual wears are the skirt or the leggings; Pair them with knit or cotton and keep accessories to a minimum for an elegant relaxed look. Off duty cool is all about easy elegance, and simple key pieces will do the trick. A jumper and long sleeves tee shirt are the staples to look for.

They can be paired with skirts or trousers and jeans, mid heels or flats. Less is more. Go for interesting textures and colours instead of overwhelming accessories.
