Do you have an absolutely favourite item of clothing / outfit?
I have a long, dove grey cashmere coat. It's beautiful and so soft. Cost a fortune but it will be in my wardrobe forever. I always get comments on it which is bizarre as it's rather plain looking, not striking but I can throw it over any old outfit and instantly feel better
I have a habit of getting really into a look, wearing it to death and then getting bored. At the moment my favourite is: Slouchy trousers, pref that high waisted masculine cut that bypasses your arse Deep V-neck jumper Brogues Harris tweed overcoat Stripey scarf (specifically: JW Anderson for Uniqlo last autumn) Cross body bag.
When the weather gets a bit milder I'll switch to ankle length trews, swop the jumper for a silk shirt, the tweed coat for a men's raincoat and ditch the scarf.
Before that I wore mostly tube skirts or ruched dresses with ankle boots.
Muck boots. Warm, waterproof, comfortable, good grip. Brilliant for walking the dog in this weather. Velvet Boden coats (grey and blue) so versatile. A nice pair of R&B ankle boots that go with everything.
My Allsaints biker jackets, have three of them, one with faux fur lining which is toasty warm in the cold. My Nike Air max 97's and 95's Levis jeans Allsaints Grace jeans An old Nike Hoodie that I've had for years
