Layering With Style

When you have a statement coat, it's easy to get lazy with your outfit underneath. After all, it is cold out so you're going to keep that fab coat everywhere you go, right? Not so! I get cold and hot easily so layering is my best friend--at work I cannot even count how many times I take off and put on my cardigan throughout the day. It is important to make sure that you still look presentable (and fly!) no matter how many layers you are wearing.

For this outfit, I started off with a basic black on black outfit (accented with a chunky gold chain-- Nino Brown style! lol)

 I added a red bomber jacket for warmth...

...and finished the look with a colorful scarf. 

Coat: Kenneth Cole (also comes in yellow!) / Turtleneck: H&M / Jeans: Bisou Bisou (similar) / Boots: NYLA / Scarf: Asos / Handbag: Steve Madden

  2. LOL at the Nino Brown reference! And, yes when it's cold outside a good statement coat is essential because people might not get to see whats underneath no matter how cute it is, right?! And, I LOVE your coat and scarf!
