Hey all! Looks like another chilly day here in the Midwest- and just when I thought brighter days were on the horizon. I guess it’s officially time to swap my Los Angeles winter wardrobe for warmer, Midwestern garbs.
With that said, I needed to figure out a way to stretch my already slim winter wardrobe by utilizing at least one statement piece as a focal point . This classic beige trench coat (that I sale stalked) is the perfect foundation piece. It’s versatility allowed me to create four amazing looks that are perfect for any office vibe.
Fashion is what you’re offered four times a year. Style is what you pick out of that. AUTHOR UNKNOWN
Look #1 – The Weekender
Blue Jeans & White Tank
Okay. These two items have to be in every woman’s closet. They are the end-all, be-all to any last-minute, don’t-have-anything-to-wear look. Take it up a notch by adding a classic trench coat and ballet flats to keep this look casual, without looking sloppy.
Look #2 – Sassy and Sophisticated
Neutral Shift Dress
I love Helen Mirren. She is the epitome of classic chic. She can make a pair of jeans and T-shirt look like a million bucks. So why not channel your inner Helen for a sophisticated and sassy look by pairing a classic beige trench coat with a neutral colored shift dress for an effortless, elegant look (I feel so MI-6).
Look # 3 – Street Sleek
Classic Fit Jeans & V-Neck Black T-Shirt
When I pulled this look together, I didn’t realize how tough it looked- that is, until I saw the pics. I feel like I should be hanging with Harry Bosch solving crimes . . . and these aviators add kick-ass street sleek edge, don’t you think?
Look #4 – Boss Lady
Above-the-Knee Plaid Skirt & White Sleeveless Tank Shirt
Glide on a bright red lipstick and you are ready for some serious business. I actually found this plaid skirt at a thrift store in Palm Springs for $4! Talk about a find! But when you pair it with this classic beige trench, a sleeveless white tank shirt and heels, you are one serious boss lady ready to get down to business.
