How to create a week-end look with thrifted pieces

Good afternoon,

I hope you're doing well. Last Sunday, I met up with a friend near the Seine riverbanks. It was super cold (-1°C), I had to bundle up. I opted for a casual and minimalist outfit. I’m wearing a black ankle length coat from Flavio Donati. It's probably one of the warmest coats I have ever owned (85% wool and 15% cashmere). I found it in the men’s section. I'm a size medium but I always size up for coats. This one is an XL which is the perfect oversized fit for me. I can add invisible layers without looking bulky. I was happy to see that the coat had a matching belt because that’s not always the case in vintage stores. And to make things even better, the coat has shoulder pads. I couldn’t ask for more! I bought it last year for only 10 euros.

I wish I wasn't so sensitive to the cold but I can't help it. I had four layers underneath my coat, a black tank top and a long sleeve undershirt that cost me 3 euros each. Then, I added a white oversized sweater from the flea market (6 euros). And the last layering piece was a black blazer that I thrifted many years ago for 5 euros. Next, I opted for a straight-leg jeans that has a relaxed fit. I found it in the men’s section as well. It’s originally from Façonnable, an old French brand. I'm wearing thermal leggings underneath (not thrifted).

For maximum comfort, I opted for a pair of white chunky sneakers from Amazon (24 euros). They’re lightweight and super easy to wear. The only touch of femininity for this look is the vinyl crossbody bag. I can store all my daily essentials in it. I bought it on Vinted for 6 euros. Lastly, my silver rings are from the flea market. I got three rings for 3 euros.
