Fall is finally here! Am I the only one that gets this excited for Fall fashion? For some reason, the transition from maxi dresses and sandals to coats, scarves and boots just gets me going. There is such a richness of fabrics, textures, hues, etc. that comes along with Fall fashion and it is unlike any other season. Among my growing list of must-haves for Fall, on the top is a fabulous coat. Now, you all know that I live in Southern California and our temperatures don’t exactly drop as low as some other places BUT with the slightest bit of chill, I’m breaking out all of my outerwear and scarves. Plus, it actually does get cold here! I know you are probably rolling your eyes, especially my East Coast-ers, but what can I say? I’m definitely a Cali girl.
Any who, let’s get to more important things – this outfit! This jaguar print coat is stunning! It is such a statement piece and lends itself to so much versatility. It’s long enough to be worn as a trench coat dress with knee high boots or to layer underneath as I have done. I love it because it is lightweight and will work perfectly for the weather here in Los Angeles but it can also be a great transition piece for those areas that are just starting to get a little cool. Overall, it is a great addition to anyone’s wardrobe and can work from day to night!
Here’s another simpler way of styling this coat with a black top and skirt to really make the coat pop.
