Full disclosure – I bought this beautiful (but affordable!) camel coat last year and have only worn it twice since. It just doesn’t get that cold here in LA (I know, poor me). But I love this coat and wanted to wear it recently paired with some more casual pieces. Of course, a coat like this looks great with more sleek denim and a chic pair of boots and chunky knit, but I really love the juxtaposition of a nice coat with a more casual outfit. Anyone else?
Here I went with my usual medium blue denim jeans + white sneakers. I’ve been living in these Everlane sneakers since summer and have no intention of slowing down. But they’ve gotten so dirty! If you have tips for keeping white sneakers clean, please let me know.
I have so many jeans but I felt like it was time to add a new pair of Levi’s to my life. My favorite Levi’s cut is the Wedgie Fit. They work so well for my 5′ 3″ frame – I have larger hips but a smaller waist and of course short legs, and these fit perfectly! I think the inseam to the pair I got is 27.5″ which works for me as a cropped look. I’m generally a size 25 but to be honest, with these extra pounds from 2020 they’re a little tight. I have hope in the new year they will fit better.
I didn’t want to go with my normal white tee with this look so I decided to pair the coat with a linen button-up shirt to add some texture and I love how it looked! Linen is so popular in summer but with the mild weather here, we’re able to wear it with coats like this and I love that.
I have so many other outfit ideas with this coat, I hope the weather stays cool!
What’s your go-to coat and do you like to dress it up or down?
