STYLE GURU STYLE: Coats for Everyday Wear

This winter, long coats with buttoned detailing are super trendy, and the one designer whose long coats catch my eye are Burberry’s. From the texture to the color, Burberry’s coats are exquisite. In the Burberry fall 2015 ready-to-wear collection, Burberry incorporated this beautiful wool coat with buttons from top to bottom. This runway model wore the coat buttoned. This coat can be worn formally and informally; it is definitely my go-to for the winter.

The wool, military peacoat that I am wearing looks amazing open or closed; I chose to wear it open as I shopped around SoHo! The color is bold and creates a color contrast for the rest of the outfit. The gold buttons are an amazing detail. I wore a simple, black turtleneck along with medium-wash denim and black booties. I kept it simple today because I knew I was going shopping, so no outlandish jewelry, but I wore my new Ray-Ban aviators that I got for Christmas. Aviators will go with anything you wear during every season.

When the weather gets colder this winter, I can definitely layer cable knit sweaters with the coat and basic wool sweaters in neutral colors. This coat can also be worn with a different shade of denim, such as black and a medium-blue wash; as for shoes, the coat can be paired with brown riding boots, black suede boots and beige Keds. These long coats will definitely be needed throughout winter and the beginning of spring, and it is a definite staple piece in my wardrobe.
