STATEMENT WINTER #COATS


In extreme cold when staying warm tops the sartorial chart, looking chic always seems insurmountable. But, thanks to the vast sea of stylish outerwears available out there:  not only staying warm has become easy but equally dapper too.

A good 80% wool jacket coat can cost you well between a few hundred dollars, but looking at the cost per wear you get of it, every dollar spent becomes worth the investment. A coat is definitely an investment piece and will stay with you forever, when taken gentle care of and stowed well.

Picking out an outer from so many options- anorak,  peacoat, duster coat, parka to name a few, can be daunting, but with a little know-how it is easily achievable. Check this outerwear 101 post by POPSUGAR for all that you need to know when in the market for a coat.

I have a few outers in my closet which have been a part of my ever-growing closet for a decade now and are still an at par contender when picking out one to wear. This fur jacket was added to my wardrobe in 2009 and has been my favorite ever since then. There is just something about a great faux fur coat that makes you feel glamorous every time you wear it. It's an instant pick-me-up for any outfit.

My outfit today which otherwise is an easy ripped jeans, silk blouse pairing: was instantly taken up a notch just with the addition of that coat.  An all-time-favorite print, the leopard coat elevates the glam quotient of my look. Needless to say I am loving it, I would suggest it's time you invest in a good statement coat that will be in your closet for years to come.

PREPPY WEDNESDAY

I am finally back in DC, majorly jet lagged, super exhausted and thoroughly overwhelmed by all the unpacking to do....

Honestly, I haven't had a chance to take any new outfit pictures, but I guess by the end of this week I shall be able to work my way out to taking some. This look that you see today is from my archives, which for some reason never made it to the blog. I am glad I found this, for it totally saved my life on this #HumpDay .....

STYLE SWAP TUESDAYS - THE SHORT #CAPE

In case you missed the first edition of the #cape series, you could head over here.

Unlike last week's longer cape outfit, this week is all about the cape blazer- a shorter version of the former.  In a more bat-wing like shape this cape translates more like a throw. I have seen a lot of simpler/plainer ones in the stores, but nothing like the one I'm wearing. Thanks to my stylish sister for hunting this down for me.

This one from +Satya Paul with embroidery on one hem and print overall which undeniably ups the style quotient, is to die for. A must-have in every fashonista's closet, a cape blazer with a fun element to it, makes for the best trendier piece you'll own this season.



cape blazer- Satya Paul India ( plain but similar )
tank- Forever 21 ( similar )
jeans- 7 for all mankind ( loving this one too )
heels- Aldo










Congratulations to Leighton of En Pointe Chic , she is the featured blogger of the week.
