Outerwear in my closet ranges from simple, classic, neutral numbers to stylish, head turning, statement pieces!

I’ve fallen for this fabulously textured, oversized zebra print coat from Trina Turk.   Statement pieces add a layer of interest to an otherwise boring ensemble, and quickly becomes a wardrobe staple.  This jacket never ceases to steal the spotlight, is a conversation starter, and takes you from 0 to 100 in a matter of seconds.  It takes a bit of courage, but once you get started, you’ll find yourself filling your closet with special pieces.  Below are some tips on how to style your statement coat:

OPT FOR A NEUTRAL BASE:
My first rule is, if the jacket is the highlight; keep the rest of your outfit simple so you don’t find yourself looking mismatched...For this ensemble, I stuck to a black base, letting the coat shine.

HEELS/BOOTS:
Heels have a way of elevating an outfit, so if you’re going for a night out look, definitely slip into a pair of heels to add an element of elegance and refinement...Since it was chillier, I slipped into a pair of Stuart Weitzman boots with a sleek strong silhouette. 

SMALL PURSE/CLUTCH:
You want accessorize with a purse that takes up less real estate, is elegant, and classy...I chose my mini metallic Lady Dior—favorite bag as of late.  Elegant, light, and a little piece of art

My closet is brimming with classic button downs, as they’re essential pieces for an effortless polished look.  Button downs have been my unofficial work uniform for years, and nothing exudes simple elegance more than a crisp blue cotton blouse with skinny jeans! 

Though often categorized as office attire, this one in particular with an A-Line silhouette, feminine details, and a slightly oversized fit, easily takes you from desk to brunch.  It’s professional, with a hint of tailored ladylike elegance, and absolutely perfect for this transitional weather as of late.  I finished my outfit with a pair of subtle but head turning heels from Alexander Wang, and reached for my classic Chanel shoulder bag.  









HOW TO STYLE YOUR BUTTON DOWN BLOUSE

CASUAL CHIC
For a comfy, chic, and refined look, pair your un-tucked blouse with skinny jeans—heels & stilettos if you’re headed out, flats for comfort, or a pair of sneakers if you’re feeling sporty.

FEMININE FLAIR
For a hint of feminine flair, tuck your shirt into a maxi skirt or a line skirt, and finish the outfit with either flats or heels.

BUSINESS CASUAL
For a business causal ensemble, throw a blazer over your button down & slip into a pair of trousers for an androgynous look or a tailored pencil skirt for something more sophisticated.
