Silver Trench & Red Rain Boots Outfit
Happy Friday, friends!!! We did it! We made it to day 26 of 26 Days of Fall Fashion!!!
When I left for South Carolina on Monday, I had only photographed enough outfits to get me through yesterday’s blog post. I knew I’d have to shoot one more look when I got home for today to finish up this series. Well, it’s been raining cats and dogs ever since I arrived home on Wednesday night so I decided to style an outfit around the red rain boots I purchased at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale back in July.
It’s been so dry here, I haven’t had a chance to wear them yet, but I did actually wear this outfit (sans scarf) to a doctor appointment yesterday after we took these pictures. It was perfect for the dank, dreary day.
I absolutely love these red boots. I have the original tall gloss Hunter boots in grey, and I’ve enjoyed them so much. They’re incredibly comfortable and practical for rainy days, and of course they make a great fashion statement, but at times I’ve found myself wishing I’d gone with a bright color. This pair is similar to the pair I’m wearing; mine sold out.
I bought this silver raincoat on sale last spring, after I went out to dinner with friends one rainy night and realized I didn’t have an appropriate coat. I do have a bright pink trench, but it’s a bit much for some occasions, and I have a more rugged anorak style raincoat, which is fine for casual wear, but every woman should have a classic neutral trench in her closet. Khaki or black are the traditional colors, but I thought this silver was pretty for something different but still neutral and understated.
I always look for a raincoat with a hood because I don’t like to have to rely on having an umbrella with me. This one has a removable drawstring hood, so if you don’t like the looks of the hood, you can take it off, but you always have the option if you change your mind. It also has a removable liner so it can be worn it all year round.
Underneath, I wore this navy and white stripe turtleneck tissue tee. I like how the turtleneck is loose and doesn’t sit tight on the neck. It’s more comfortable that way, and I also feel it’s more flattering when it allows some of my neck to show. I sized down to a small in this turtleneck, and I’m happy with the fit. J.Crew seems to run a bit big. I love the combination of the plaid scarf on the stripped turtleneck.
Dark wash skinny jeans keep the navy and white theme going and look nice against the lighter silver raincoat. An ankle length skinny jean fits easily into boots without cuffing or extra fabric to contend with.
Finally, I carried a grey bag so it would blend in with the coat and not distract from the scarf and boots.
You could totally recreate this outfit with a khaki trench or a camel colored wool coat and a brown handbag. The effect would be the same. The navy, red, and white would pop on a warmer neutral background just as nicely as it does on this cool silvery grey.
So that’s a wrap! I cannot BELIEVE our 26 Days of Fall Fashion is over! It seems like fall is just finally beginning.
If you missed any of the outfits in this series, you can view them all here, and I’ll also be doing a recap tomorrow so you have them all in one spot.
