Effortless outfits for overcast weather

Cloudy days are my favourite kind of weather…it’s the perfect balance between warm and cold. That said though, getting dressed for overcast days can be quite tricky, you never know which way the weather will go!

I like pairing thin summer jerseys with jeans and often add pops of colour with small details in my shoes, scarves and lip colour. These days I love light-weight jackets and base my outfit on which one I feel like wearing.



Here are 3 of my favourite jackets and idea’s on how to wear them.

Perfect for errands

I love a classic trench and when you run errands, you want something comfortable and stylish. A denim shirt dress and black leggings keep this look casual. To complete the look, pair it with ankle boots and a fun scarf.  You can make this look more feminine by replacing the boots with pumps. Another fun thing to do, is swap out the trench’s belt and use a scarf instead. It’s a lovely way to add interest and personality to your outfit.

Leather jackets and jeans are a staple. Paired with a casual top and a couple of accessories, like a sweet hat and trendy flats, it’s fool proof! Leather jackets and jeans can be adapted to suit any occasion. Substitute the hat, comfy tee and flats with a lacy vest and sexy heels for a girls night out or wear a white tee and stylish sneakers for a day at the mall.

If you want something more relaxed but stylish, a suede waterfall jacket is it! It’s light and soft in texture and perfect to throw over any blouse. I love it with longer shirts, black leggings and classic court shoes. The natural tone of the jacket makes it very versatile and can easily be worn over a little black dress with heels for a romantic dinner date.

And there you have it, 3 effortless outfits for cloudy days. What you’ll notice is that the jackets are very much interchangeable between the 3 outfits I put together. With classic pieces, it’s easy to make new outfits. Remember to accessorise with hats and scarves of your choice, it completes the look and makes it your own. 

Here’s to stylish cloudy days!
