FUN WAYS TO STYLE THIS SEASON'S HOTTEST OUTERWEAR
Here in Los Angeles the weather is just now getting a little chilly, time for jackets, vests, and sweaters! The great news is that there are lots of different styles of coats and sweaters to match everyone's personality this season. Here are the four looks I think are the most versatile additions to your closet and some cute ways to style them.
LEATHER. Leather has become a classic must have in outerwear. You could choose to be bold with your leather choice and go with an amazing color like red, pairing it with fun animal print accessories. The combination of mixing fringe (another must have) with your leather makes for a chic addition to any outfit. Layering is a great way to add more style to your look and a leather biker vest is perfect for this. The black leather biker jacket is a great addition to your closet. There is a style and a price point for everyone.
MILITARY INSPIRED. There are many different ways to rock this current look. Here, the long double breasted wool coat with shoulder detail is well done in chocolate brown, paired with over the knee boots and a mini skirt. Add a pair of opaque tights for more warmth. For a daytime look wear the classic army green overskirt with your go-to boyfriend jeans and striped shirt. Or, a slightly dressier version in ¾ length could take you from work to dinner with friends. If you like to make a statement choose a style that has a removable faux fur collar to be dressed up or down.
TRADITIONAL TRENCH. A camel or white cashmere car coat is a twist on the traditional that feels so good on and can transition to almost any outfit seamlessly. Plaid is everywhere this Fall/Winter. What better way to get in on this look than to have a great plaid overcoat? If you are going to buy just one jacket, grey is the way to go due to its versatility. This unstructured, flowing style can be so chic with leggings & boots.
LONG SWEATERS. ¾ length knits are taking over the sweater world! An oversized chunky look is perfect wrapped and held closed with a great belt. This grey blanket sweater over an all black outfit is so sleek with clean lines. I am a huge fan of pattern mixing, an easy way to achieve this is with a sweater that does it for you. This high/low wrap is perfect for a cozy weekend in or outdoors. Last but not least, nothing beats a classic neutral cardigan. Loving this cream with the sleeves pushed up to add extra flair.
