One Coat, Three Ways: MOLLY

Posted

If you’re looking to invest in a luxury item, of course you’ll want your money’s worth. There’s nothing worse than wearing something once, or when an item only works with one specific outfit. In this series we put together three different ways to style one of our Spring 2018 designs, from casual to formal and everything in between.

Say hello to MOLLY – a lightweight duster coat that’s perfect for the spring/summer transition. With the loose and easy silhouette, this design is ideal for layering over anything from T-shirts to fitted workwear. The sleeves are fully adjustable with a subtle D-ring, and MOLLY’s monochrome check works with weekday and weekend looks alike.

Versatile pieces that you can dress up or down are key to building a wardrobe that can last the seasons. Whatever your sartorial tastes, G&O’s collection has something for everyone.

 

Classic casual

You can’t go wrong with a white shirt, blue jeans, and box-fresh trainers. Build on a great baseline outfit and elevate the look with MOLLY and a few choice accessories.

This laid-back look is perfect for those who live by the motto ‘less is more’. Slogan tees are all the range this season; we’ve kept the outfit bright and simple by pairing it with light-wash skinny jeans. Add MOLLY’s dark contrasting design on top and you’ve got an ensemble that’s both comfortable and stylish.

Molly, G&O | £150

T-Shirt, Gucci | £370

Gazelles, Adidas | £75

Skinny Jeans, 3x1 | £192

Watch, Daniel Wellington | £79

Sunglasses, Taylor Morris | £180


Business brunch

For a sophisticated and elegant look, nothing beats an all-white ensemble. MOLLY’s relaxed silhouette offsets the rigidity of the tailored pieces, creating an outfit that’s smart but not uptight. We’ve added blush tone accessories to soften the monochromatic colour palette.

Mix and match with MOLLY’s windowpane check by pairing them with other patterned pieces – we’ve chosen these fitted ankle-grazing trousers in a matching pattern. But, if you’re looking to push the sartorial boat out, clashing patterns and colours will create a fashion-forward look.

 Molly, G&O | £150

Trousers, Chriselle x J.O.A | £62

Wrap Top, Rag & Bone | £330

Belt, Gucci | £450

Tote, Prada | £2,229

Mules, Topshop | £62

Girls’ night out

Dress to impress with this killer outfit that’s sure to turn heads. This season is all about statement silhouettes and heritage checks, and MOLLY ticks all the right boxes.

Set the scene with a LBD (Little Blue Dress) in a pastel hue that’s perfect for the warmer months. Then, channel off-duty model vibes by adding MOLLY as an extra layer – the long side splits allow the coat to billow gracefully as your strut your stuff. Complete the look with a bold red lip and killer heels.

Molly, G&O | £150

Dress, French Connection | £116

Bag, J.W. Anderson | £1,090

Heels, by the way. | £65

Earrings, Natasha Schweitzer | £345

Lipstick, Charlotte Tilbury | £24
