Winter is closing in on us, and with the change of season comes a change of wardrobe. It’s not just the transition in weather that encourages me to put on a coat, it’s also the perfect time to try something new. Outerwear style is so fun to experiment with because you can try every new trend, find the perfect vintage piece, or reinvent the classics.
THE NEW CLASSIC
This season I decided to settle down and get serious. I needed a classic coat that I could wear for years to come. The classic silhouette complements any frame, and instead of a simple black look I went with a rich emerald green. And to make it better, pink is incorporated in the lining, pockets, and collar.
THE PUFFY COAT
Having a soft, squishy coat (ew why did I say squishy) is the best because you can just throw it on and all of a sudden you’re living out your 2018 street style dreams. These are my top picks for a puffy jacket this winter.
I’m currently loving…
brightly colored outerwear and accessories, and feeling more adventurous with my style. I recently bought a tube top which I think is such a statement for the Winter months. Be bold with your style choices even under the jacket.
A VINTAGE MOMENT
I love shopping at thrift stores for coats every year because it feeds my shopping addiction without hurting my wallet. The best part about it is that you can typically find on-trend items for sometimes just $1. My outerwear obsession is satisfied thanks to my favorite thrift stores. Try it out, you’ll be surprised at how many cool styles you can find. Pro thrifter tip: don’t buy anything with an old stain, no matter how much you like it.
