Outfit Inspiration: A great trench

October 27th, 2011 by alex | No Comments | Filed in Outfit Inspiration

a great trench

Today’s outfit inspiration features a classic belted trench.  The trench coat is the perfect piece for fall, spring and mild winter days.  It’s a great layering piece and always looks chic.

In the above set the trench is definitely the splurge item.  However, I paired it with basic pieces that can be found pretty much anywhere (and probably your own closet!) at lower price points.

Do you have a classic trench in your closet?

scarf fun

Scarves are one of my favorite ways to add interest to an outfit.  They look great paired with a tee & jeans, blazers, dresses and more.  With so many types and fabrics – the possibilities are endless!  The next time you think your outfit needs a little something extra just add a scarf!  Below is a pretty amazing scarf tutorial video we found on YouTube.  Be sure to check it out for even more inspiration!

Color Spotlight: Mustard

Color spotlight : mustard

Today’s color spotlight is on one of my favorite fall hues:  Mustard yellow.  Mustard is a fun way to add a pop of fall color into your wardrobe.  Above are some of my favorite ways to infuse this hue into your everyday look this season.

1.  Wrap Sweater – A cozy mustard sweater is casual chic when paired with black pants or boyfriend jeans.

2.  Skirt.  Pair it with a black tee or turtleneck for a cute fall outfit.  Chilly outside?  Just add some black tights.

3.  Bright bangle.  Add a little Mustard to your bracelet stack.

4.  Crossbody bag.  This cute little bag is perfect for everyday or a night out.  The Mustard color makes an otherwise basic fun and unexpected.

5.  Heels.  These Mustard heels are the perfect pop of color for your LBD or black pants.

6.  Infinity scarf.  This scarf looks so cozy and is the perfect cold weather accessory.  Pair it with your favorite dark sweater or jacket.
