Lily Donaldson gave us good outfit inspiration for a grey summer day (like today on the East Coast) with this look she wore in Paris recently. The casual but put-together ensemble is an easy look to put together on a crisp day, and I'll show you how below!
Start with the denim mini skirt.
Next is the crewneck sweater.
A lightweight sweater is a must-have for summer. These colder days must be handled accordingly, and a sweater tucked into a mini or shorts is the most summer-appropriate way to handle them. Lily's is a heather grey-meets-blue, to mimic the shade of the skirt but not match it. Find a similar sweater here or here.
Now for the trench coat.
A good trench coat is a wardrobe staple and great for colder spring and summer days when it rains but you don't want the weight of heavier coat. Lily's is longer than most, hitting mid-calf, and in a lightweight fabric that drapes. The length contrasts well with the bareness of her legs under the mini skirt. Find similar options here, here, and here.
Ankle booties give the look more polish.
The furry bag finishes the look and makes it ten times more fun!
