While some parts of the world are already experiencing some heavy snowfall, it’s not officially winter! December 21st bears that honor! Since we are all experiencing some degree of cooler weather, we can pull out the warmer gear and show our winter style! To that end, I’m styling a comfy, cozy sherpa coat outfit.
Have you taken the plunge and bought a faux fur coat this year? Faux furs of all kinds are having a big moment and really are very cute. With our moderate winters, I hesitate to buy anything very heavy and, fortunately, there are lots of lightweight versions of the faux fur coat, including the sherpa coat.
The Sherpa Coat
This cute little open front sherpa coat was a find from my favorite hair salon and boutique: Salon Zinnia. Yup, I got my hair done last week for our trip, and of course, I found a few adorable things I just had to have! Do you do the same? When your hair salon is part of a boutique, it’s a dangerous visit every month or so, right?! Lol!
This coat is made by a California company; the owner/buyer from Salon Zinnia purchases most of her things from California clothing companies, a great thing to do to support U.S. companies.
Here is a listing of similar short jacket styles at affordable prices:
So many darling choices!! So little time or funds to buy them all! Haha! Of course, there are warmer versions for those who are looking for a longer, warmer coat. There are LOTS to choose from!
The Sherpa Coat Outfit
The basis for this neutral outfit is white jeans. And YES, you can wear white jeans in the winter! They make a great basic for winter and are just as warm as a pair of indigo jeans! The trick for any neutral outfit is not to try too hard as you put the pieces together. They don’t have to match. In other words, the white jeans and the ivory or off-white sweater are not in the same tone.
Notice what I am styling here: white jeans, an ivory or off-white turtleneck top, oak suede booties, a cognac bag, and an animal print scarf. Texture helps to create interest as in the sherpa coat, the suede booties, and the loosely woven scarf. As long as the pieces are in the same neutral color family, almost anything works.
This elbow-length lightweight turtleneck makes a perfect layering piece. I styled it before in this post with my checkered trousers. You can pick one up very inexpensively. They come in three colors.
I’ve styled this turtleneck before, as in this post with my checkered trousers.
Try putting together a neutral outfit with pieces you already have in your closet! I think you’ll be surprised at how easily you can create a stylish neutral outfit. Add a faux fur jacket to your outfit and you’ll be right on trend this winter!
