Style Spotlight: Oversized Sweater

Its time for another style spotlight! Today I am introducing you to the world of oversized sweaters. Not that they need much introduction because you probably have one in your closet right now. I am just here to tell you that oversized sweaters are totally in trend and can look really good if styled well. I love a cozy oversized sweater with jeans and riding boots in the winter. Especially on a mild winter day like the one we had last Sunday in Boston.

3 Ways to Wear a Black Coat

Do you own a black coat? I feel like everyone owns at least one black coat or jacket. A black coat is a classic closet staple that can be worn different ways. You can wear it down or dress it up, its a must have! Today I am sharing some ways to wear it if you are running out of ideas.

Pair it with brown boots: Blue Jeans, Brown Knee-length Boots, Black Hat and a fun scarf: This look is somewhat dressy and is perfect for date night or even for work. The brown is a nice change from a black boot. Make sure your boots have a bit of heel of you really want to dress it up.

Wear it with a sweater dress: Depending on the length of your dress your coat can look great with a dress. Try to wear a dress that is shorter or the same length as your coat. Thick and warm leggings are perfect for this look in the winter. I wore flats here because we were having one of those unusually sunny days in the middle of winter.

All black it up: You know I am the queen of all black so had to sneak in an all black outfit. Wear your black coat with black jeggings and black boots. You can throw in a different color scarf to break the all black look. I wore this outfit when I took a day trip to Newport. It is comfortable yet stylish.

Style Spotlight: Black Ankle Booties

 

black ankle booties

I recently worked on a campaign with DSW and we had the option to pick a shoe that we liked from the store. I am already a shoe addict so I was like a kid in a candy store shopping for my next pair. No matter how many times I buy shoes, finding my next pair is always a fun adventure. If you have been in a DSW store then you know that store is like a danger zone for any shoe lover. Its Literally a warehouse full of designer shoes.

Since the weather has taken a cold turn its only fitting that my choice was the lucky Brand Faithly Bootie. I was a little torn about which color to pick but the black lover in me chose the black pair. I am seriously considering going back to get a light brown pair as I am absolutely in love with these ankle booties.

If you are interested in the Faithly bootie here is more information on the shoe design.

  • The black ankle booties have a stacked heel 1.37 inches in height: perfect for those looking for a short heeled bootie.
  • They have a Suede leather upper with a synthetic lining and outsole: I love that the upper is made of leather which means the shoe will last much longer than a synthetic upper.
  • As described by Lucky Brand; The Faithly Bootie has ultimate comfort and wear-anywhere appeal. I totally agree! I  have dressed them up and down with great results.

3 Ways to wear black ankle booties in winter

  •  Wear them with cropped jeans: In cooler seasons I like to wear my booties with ankle length jeans leaving little or no space between the top of the shoe and the bottom of the jeans. Think this black pair with black ankle length jeans, an ivory turtleneck sweater and a long camel coat.
  • Wear them with tights, a knit dress and a oversized jacket. This look is perfect for those cold but not freezing temperature days when you can rock a dress.
  • Pair your black booties with thick winter tights and a long chunky sweater or cardigan. I like this look with a wide brim hat and cross body purse. So chic!

Style Spotlight: Brown Leather Jacket

What clothing item do you run to when you get a last minute invite to a lunch or event? I tend to go for a pair of jeans, a blazer and heels. Now that it is colder outside the layers have to be warmer. Some of my favorite textures for fall and winter are wool, tweed and leather. I love that they all provide warmth, are timeless and are easy to style.

Last weekend I attended an event in Boston and I wore my trusted fall combo; Leather jacket, jeans and boots. Every girl should have a great leather jacket in her wardrobe. It is perfect to wear with a simple T-shirt, jeans combo and can be dressed up too. Check out my post on how to style a black leather jacket for more inspiration.

If you like the leather look but do not like the idea of wearing leather or follow a strict vegan lifestyle, brands like Vaute Couture, Cult of Coquette offer great leather substitutes.

Fall Fashion: Going Neutral With Denim

What do your wear when you have to run errands or go christmas shopping? I say something comfortable, cute and simple is always the way to go when you have to be on your feet all day. Now when we say comfortable we are not talking sweats and Ugg’s, not that there is anything wrong with them. Although we love our sweats at home, when going out we like to add a touch of elegance even to the most simple look. Think blue jeans and a dressy jacket or black leggings and a long button down sweater.

You can’t go wrong with a pair of jeans and a neutral colored sweater and boots in the fall. This look is simple, comfortable. See how I styled it below.

Going Neutral With Denim

I usually offer 5 ways to style a fashion item but today I am switching things up and giving some fashion terminology knowledge. The style word of the day is neutrals.

Neutrals: They are colors that don’t usually show up on the color wheel. They include black, white, gray, brown and beige. They are sometimes called earth tones or non colors. In other words they are colors not in the rainbow.

Neutral colors are great when it comes to style as they go with most outfits. For example if you are torn on which color boots to get for the winter. You are better off choosing a brown pair than a black pair although having both is even better.
