Austria’s coffee shops might have changed little over the years but they are still venues that inspire thought, conversation and refinement. All the more reason to ensure that you look the part.
If your new year’s resolution is to see more, then these smart but relaxed looks (with pockets aplenty and lots of layers) are your ally for visits to galleries, restaurants and shopping expeditions.
Feeling confident? Good: 2020 is the year to be bold, put yourself out there and get noticed. And where better to start than with your wardrobe? These are the looks that will help you stand out from the crowd all year.
