STYLE GURU STYLE: Captain Classy

STYLE GURU STYLE: Captain Classy

What better time to show off my favorite outfit item: stylish coats. The transition from fall to winter can be brutal and the best way to prepare is to find a coat that gets you through both light chills and December’s winds. There’s no better solution to classy and comfortable style than to pair your favorite jeans with a structured coat!

Yes, with the coming cold months, it’s hard to find a coat that is both beautiful and warm. However, we sacrifice a lot for beauty, don’t we, Fashionistas/os?  That means pulling all the stops to ensure that your street style remains ever-so-chic during the blizzard months in New York. We’ve lucked out this week, because the weather has held up. It has been so unlike November’s temperature, but who’s complaining?

Some of you might think that you have to spend big bucks in order to find a suitable jacket for your fashion fiends. Rest assured, I have you covered in that department. Both H&M and Zara have so many deal items that mimic expensive designer items. This military coat looks pricey, but it didn’t break the budget. The good thing about being Fashionistas/os is that we have thrifty skills on our side—local thrift markets can land you wonders as well.

These jeans are from Zara, as well as my jacket. This simple black turtleneck was inexpensive and has lasted me through both fancy dinners and grimy clubs. Choosing versatile and basic items is key. Because I mainly focus on black, navy and grey for my go-to colors, I can mix and match everything in my closet. An added pop of color on the lips adds a little dimension to a dark look.

This chilly season is all about being comfortable and chic simultaneously. So, sit back and enjoy your goosebumps because you’ll be looking mighty fine!
