Hi Friends! I hope you had a great valentines day. As you know I am the queen of black outfits however every now and then I like to add some color to my looks. This red and black outfit includes a red peplum top, my trusted black skinny pants and black riding boots. Since we are in the middle winter I decided to show you how I transitioned this black and red outfit from the inside to outside with the addition of a coat and scarf.
My blogger BFF Kristin and I recently took a girls trip to Newport and I needed a outfit that was comfortable for our walks around town but still looked good enough for dinner at a restaurant later. I am usually in high boots but flat riding boots were a great choice as I did not want to tackle the cobblestone street in heels. The red long sleeved peplum blouse has a slight dressy look and was perfect for the restaurant. I opted for a black wool coat with a red scarf to complete the look.
Red and black outfit details:
Peplum top: The Peplum top is long sleeved petite size and is by Philosophy purchased from Nordstrom Rack. Peplum tops with their wide bottoms are best worn with straight paints or pencil skirts to prevent a frumpy look.
Coat: There are 2 coat colors that should be in every girls closet, black and camel color coats. These 2 colors are very versatile and will go with most items in your closet. This cashmere blended stand up collar Coat is from Uniqlo and is currently on sale for $59.99 which is a steal.
Scarf: I love that this scarf is so soft, warm and is the perfect accessory to this red and black outfit. I also got this from Nordstrom Rack and it is by Vismaya
Boots: These are very simple black leather boots and they are great because they can be dressed up or down. I got these at Macy’s and they are by Easy Spirit.
