STYLE GURU STYLE: Making a Statement

December 24th, 2015 at 2:00am

There’s nothing like finding a statement piece that makes your entire outfit the moment you put it on. Looking back at the Acne Studios fall 2015 ready-to-wear show, I was inspired by the a handful of amazing outwear pieces this show featured. From patterned trench coats to oversized heavy wool coats, this show was filled with unique pieces to add on to any fall look. Whether it was the material, pattern or the fit of the garments, each piece created a big enough statement to stand on its own and to make any look a statement.

Inspired by this show, I found my own piece of “statement outwear” to sport this season that alone is bold enough to make any outfit pop. This suede, bomber coat was the perfect piece to incorporate into my wardrobe this season for multiple reasons. I love the way it can be dressed up or dressed down depending on what you choose to pair with it and what plans you have that day. It is also a nice “in-between coat”, in the sense that it is not too heavy where you instantly start to sweat the moment you walking around it in, but also it is warm enough to wear out and about on this brisk winter days, making this coat a very practical addition to your winter wardrobe.

For todays look I kept it pretty casual, I paired my favorite pair of ripped skinny jeans with a simple black T-shirt and my go-to black Frye boots. Then, I simply added my bomber coat on top to keep me warm and to create an outfit that makes a statement that I would wear everyday going to class or running errands. The neutral tan color of this suede will go with practically anything you have to wear in your closet making it any easy piece to add to your own closet this season!
