Unfortunately, not every season is suited for denim cut-offs and strappy backless bodysuits (even in LA). On the up side, there’s some seriously fashionable coats and jackets trending right now that I can get on board with. In fact, there is one for basically every occasion. Check out my favorite looks right now, along with my recommendations on when to wear them.
Luxurious & Versatile
This gorgeous royal purple Who What Wear bomber jacket has to be one of my favorite items this winter. Not only is this velvety quilted look super cozy, but it’s also a rich jewel-tone that I don’t already have in my closet. I also like how you can feel bundled up, but still chic. Surprisingly, it’s pretty light and doesn’t feel like it’s weighing me down either. You can dress it up and layer it over a dress with booties/heels or dress it down with jeans and a beanie (maybe to even walk your dog in?). Either way, it’s a statement look that I’m really feeling.
Wear it while: out to lunch or dinner during a chilly day/night
Athleisurely & Comfortable
If you know me, you know I’m all about comfort. I’m the queen of cozy clothes and have a bit of an obsession with items that can be listed under the “leisure” category. Basically Aerie is my go-to store, and I could spend allllll the monies there. *Slipping into a daydream about cashmere sweatpants*.
ANYWAYS, it’s no shocker that I’m a huge fan of clothing of the athleisure variety, as well, aka anything that makes it looks like you are going to the gym when you definitely are not. I always feel so effortlessly put together and like I’m on a mission to get stuff done when I’m dressed in workout pants, a zip up, and running shoes.
This puffy jacket fits the bill, but goes above and beyond due to it’s fitted side panels that makes everything fit like a glove. I feel less like a walking marshmallow in this jacket compared to other puffers I own, which I think there is an argument for.
Another major plus about this jacket: It’s from my all-time favorite store, Costco, and was under $30. Not the most glamorous place in the world, but you really can’t beat it. I’ve found some serious gems in those massive piles of warehouse-fashion goodness.
Wear it while: running errands and Christmas shopping
Posh & Sophisticated
Confession: I’m all-out addicted to cheetah print coats this season, which I am seeing EVERYWHERE. Here are links to some of my favorites: Anthropologie, Gap, and H&M. While they are basically all the same, I. WANT. THEM. ALL.
I have my eye on this coat from the brand A New Day (available at Target), since it’s only $40 (which is a total steal compared to some of the others I’ve seen.) Hint hint: Christmas present, mom?
Wear it while: sipping drinks at your friend’s holiday party
Edgy & On-Trend
For as girly as I can be, I also really like to incorporate items into my wardrobe that are on the edgier side. This metallic silver moto jacket is no exception. It’s definitely a statement piece that happens to make me smile everytime I open my closet and see it hanging there (what more could you ask for?). I went all-out rocker chic when I styled it by pairing it with rose embroidered jeans from Paige.
On the other hand, I also think this jacket would look super cute contrasted against a more feminine dress or full skirt. I think there’s a lot that could be done with it to create a unique outfit. And who doesn’t want that?
Wear it while: out and about on the town or to a concert (maybe not caroling, though :))
