Today I am going to show you how easily you can change your look with a basic coat. It is continuing to be rainy and cool here in SoCal, with warm sunshine in between, so it pays to be ready for anything!
Once again I am styling my TopShop coat from Nordstrom. It is unlined so you could substitute a warmer lined version to get the same effect.
For the first look, I am styling a casual look. I am wearing burgundy jeans from Lands End (they have some great colored and denim jeans, hem for free, and have a very liberal return policy, so it’s a very good option.) Under my coat is a loose tee from Cabi. (Remember them? The home party line?) To give the outfit a fun look, I added a polka dot tie scarf. This is an easy way to mix patterns and textures.
Finally, I am wearing my newest Skechers. I love the white lacy look with a touch of black and the fact that I can just slip them on. SO comfortable for running around in all day and for travel!
I really like mixing casual elements with more formal pieces, don’t you?
Stay tuned for two other ways to style a coat for different looks.
