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.

Always,

Thoa
