The combination of black and white is a no brainer. It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that it works. It’s basic….end of story. Although this combination doesn’t scream, “Look at me,” it is always chic, and that’s the beauty of it. And while, yes, you can’t tear most of girls away from our black & white basics, you can introduce a standout outerwear piece that takes your look to the next level….i.e. this powder pink Express coat.
With that said, I think too many gals take our outerwear a bit too seriously. We assume that a black, camel, or navy piece will be the most versatile…and yes, while you will get a lot of mileage out of a basic color, there is something to be said about standing out in the crowd! One thing I love about Express’ outerwear (aside from the friendly price tags!) is the versatile options outside of the basics. Aside from my pink cocoon coat, there is a white checkered number, a color block moto leather jacket, a leather trimmed houndstooth car coat, and an INSANE cape that all scream, “Look at me, look at me!” And did I mention all outerwear is 30% off right now?! I know, it’t too good to be true.
So as the temperatures continue to drop and you open your coat closet before heading out the door, take a moment to wear the unexpected outerwear piece…and make your basics jealous!
What “out of the ordinary” outerwear do you have your eye on this season?
