As personal style is ever evolving, I am learning to purchase staple pieces for my wardrobe that will last me for a long time. Needless to say, it was a score to have found this camel wool wrap coat from Brooks Brothers at the thrift store for a small percentage of whats it’s worth.
There are many ways to style a long wrap coat like this one but, I decided to wear all black underneath to make the coat the main feature and add some contrast to the outfit. Wanting to keep things comfortable and more fluid, I wore a long maxi skirt by Kensie over a pair of high thigh leggings from American Apparel for extra warmth ( they are the best layering leggings for the winter ) . Wearing a maxi skirt elongates a shorter frame and makes you look and feel taller.
For the top layers , I added a cozy Banana Republic wool cardigan over a long sleeve crop top and paired the look with platform leather boots by Zara . Keeping accessories light, I carried my Kate Spade Saturday Bag and added some black & gold bangles and a chocker with a gold necklace. Always protecting my head, I snatched a black beanie to top off this outfit. I loved how comfortable, simple yet chic this look was . Sometimes, keeping it simple can easily help you take the look from day to night.
Until next time, I hope everyone stays warm and well fed.
