Happy Friday, friends! I didn’t have enough pictures for a full try-on haul today, so I decided to share this outfit instead.
This look is inspired by street style looks on Pinterest. I probably wouldn’t have put this outfit together on my own, but I think it’s so chic and wearable.
I mentioned in my last What I Wore post that I tend to gravitate to my shorter wool coats, especially with casual looks, but I’m loving the juxtaposition of this traditional wool blend reefer coat and the sporty sneakers.
This coat has been in my wardrobe for several years, and it’s still available and on sale. It’s a traditional single breasted car coat, or reefer as they call it.
It has a nice slim silhouette with front welt pockets, and it’s made of a sturdy wool blend and fully lined. While oversized wool coats are more trendy at the moment, I feel like the clean lines and slim fit of this one are a better fit for my personal style.
This coat runs slightly big; I actually have it in the size 4. I will say, it’s a bit snug over heavier sweaters, but it fits perfectly over dresses and thinner knits.
Underneath, I’m wearing a simple black sweater and blue jeans.
The sweater sold out, but any black sweater would work with this look, or grey would be another good option.
I went with black because I wanted to wear a grey scarf, and I like the way it pops against the black coat and black sweater.
This is the Everlane scarf that I’ve talked about a lot, but the grey is no longer available.
I like it, but I think I’d prefer a wider option. It’s a great size for versatility, but it’s not very warm because there’s not a ton of material. I’m on the lookout for something cozier.
And these are my AG Farrah skinny jeans in the 12 Years Fluid wash. It’s a really good medium blue denim wash with some slight whiskering and fading. They’re TTS; I have them in the 28.
The Everlane Studio Bag is the perfect mid-size shoulder bag, and I love the pocket on the front — both because it’s a unique detail and also because it’s the perfect spot to stash my iPhone.
And finally, I love how the black accents on these Vejas repeat the black from the coat and help to tie the outfit together. I talked more about them and my decision to purchase them in my last What I Wore Lately.
All that to say, I love this simple yet elevated look. I will definitely be wearing this “in real life” in the very near future.
