I don’t know why but when it gets colder, I tend to gravitate towards more basic pieces which can sometimes translate to boring. I have two looks when the temps drop — either I’m warm and blah or I look cute but I’m freezing.
That’s why I love a good statement coat for fall and winter because it’s one of the easiest ways to dress up a simple outfit. Since coats can be a bit expensive, it’s important for me to look for something that can be worn year after year — a coat that is stylish without being too trendy.
I recently bought this coat and I adore how its classic, structured silhouette is paired with a timeless tartan print. In order for the plaid to pop and truly be the star of this outfit, I kept everything else neutral. Later in the day I ended up switching my shoes to sneakers and the outfit was just as cute, +2 points for versatility!
