Maroon Field Jacket
While this is more of a fall look for those of us in the northeast, it might be a good winter outfit for those of you in warmer climates. I was asked not to forget about my southern friends when I was planning this winter series, so I’m hoping you guys like this one!
What I like about this outfit for warmer climates is the colors are wintry but the twill jacket is lightweight so you don’t overheat.
Then there are these booties… these are by Kork-Ease, and they are so super comfortable.
They’re a bit pricier than some booties I feature, but this style is classic and they’re the kind of quality boot will last many years. Not only are they made with a leather upper, but the lining and sole is also leather. For those of you with finicky feet, they have a cushioned footbed and as well as arch support, and the 1″ heel makes them easy to walk in.
Also, the hidden elastic goring ensures a custom fit and provides easy on-and-off, which I love. I hate futzing with my shoes, which is one reason I gravitate to ballet flats and loafers. I also really like the smooth grey leather against the wood grain heel. I wanted leather so I can wear them when it’s messy out, but if you don’t need that, 6pm.com has these booties in a really pretty taupe suede for 55% off!
I also found this black and white striped sweater at Old Navy. They call it a tee, but it’s definitely more of a sweater. It is super-duper soft, and I feel like the cut is very flattering. It hugs your curves without being clingy, and the sleeves are nice and long and cozy. FYI, it’s on a Today Only Deal at Old Navy, and it’s only $18.50. (For that reason, it is excluded from the 40% off sitewide deal they have going on.)
I also really like the vented sides. This sweater is a pretty cozy, so if it’s too warm for your weather, you can always sub a striped tee. For size reference, I’m wearing the small.
I’m wearing a small in the jacket as well, and it’s plenty roomy to layer over a sweater. I really like the shorter length, and it also has that drawstring so you can cinch the waist for a more flattering fit. If maroon isn’t your thing, it comes in a slew of other colors including a camo print. This jacket is 40% off today, bringing it down to $26.99!
I kept the rest of the outfit simple with black jeans and my go-to black satchel. And guys! My favorite casual black jeans are on sale! These have a slightly faded black wash that I really like for casual wear, and they are soooo flattering and comfortable. These were sent to me by Hudson a while back and I find myself wearing them a ton. They’re really good.
If they’re still way out of budget and you’re in the market for black skinnies, Old Navy has a pair of black mid-rise super skinny jeans that look good and they’re on sale too. They’re 1.5 inches longer than these, though.
This outfit is fine on it’s own, but I think the maroon jacket really makes it. Another option would be a quilted vest — either black or a deep jewel tone like burgundy or even pink. I love the J.Crew excursion quilted down vests, if you’re looking for a good quality piece you’ll have for years, and their Factory version is pretty good too if you want a more budget-friendly option.
I really like this outfit for a casual fall/winter look when you may be doing a lot of walking or need something practical but put-together.
