There’s something so chic about a pink coat. And I think I’m not the only one who feels that way. I see pink moto jackets, pink trench coats, pink wool winter coats and anything in between. And I want them all! Pink has almost become the new black.
Pink and blush have gotten under my skin (I’m in love with my cashmere blush sweater), and I’ve wonder what the reason is. I think most of us, or at least the “us” who tend to wear a lot of neutrals, have been starved for color. And this season’s particular shade of pink is a safe neutral that works well with other neutrals.
So I’ve embraced the blush trend wholeheartedly and love styling my pink and blush pieces with this season’s other great trend – ripped jeans.
The key to wearing black from head to toe in winter, and any other season really, is playing with texture. Done right, wearing all one color doesn’t have to be boring. Texture adds just the right amount of interest and makes the outfit cool.
Here I’ve paired a chunky black sweater, with big, exaggerated knit, a smooth black wool coat, and leather leggings (for a bit of sleek shine). To further add interest to the outfit, I finished it off with a neutral suede bag and booties. The suede adds a further layer of texture. Both the bag and the booties are intricately detailed and textured, and they stand out against the black canvas of the outfit. So while to whole outfit is very monochromatic, it certainly isn’t boring.
The holidays are upon us, and for my holiday outfit this year I’m going for merry and bright. I know a lot of people shop for a new holiday outfit, but this year I decided to forgo shopping (I’ve done a lot of that lately) I pulled this outfit together from my favorite bold and bright pieces. (My only bold and bright pieces?)
Pink and blush have slowly been taking over my closet lately. Pink is becoming a go-to color for me and I plan to wear pink into fall and winter. And I’m not the only one. Soft pinks and blushes are everywhere this fall. From pumps, to sneakers, to coats and moto jackets, pinks and blushes are all the rage.
A military jacket has been my staple outerwear for fall and spring for years now. I bought my first one in Amsterdam years ago (I remember that at the time people were already wearing them in Europe, but they were really hard to find in the US). But in a moment of “I need to purge my closet of old stuff” last summer, I donated it. I regretted it almost immediately as I started seeing stylish moms at the playground looking stylish and happy in their own military jackets. And since then I had been on a hunt to replace it.
