STYLE GURU STYLE: Olive You Fall

As fall 2015 is in full swing and the weather starts to get even colder, it is time to bring out the heavier jackets, boots and warm knit scarves. Polo Ralph Lauren is a designer known for looks that are classic, preppy and fashion-forward. It is challenging to translate a look from the runway into everyday ready-to-wear while maintaining the integrity of your own aesthetic and style. Pulling inspiration from the Polo Ralph Lauren fall 2015 ready-to-wear line, I put my own spin on the look with the olive green heavy fall jacket and over-sized brown leather bag.

I twisted the Polo Ralph Lauren classic look around with a more casual brown leather bag and warm olive green jacket. I added an orange knit scarf, brown combat boots and medium wash denim jeans to make the look more everyday appropriate. The Michael Kors furry hooded olive green jacket is insulated and keeps me protected from the brisk fall breezes in Pittsburgh. The brown leather bag resembles the bag from the runway look but it is bigger and more casual for running weekend errands. My outfit resembles the Polo Ralph Lauren look but with my own added personal flare.

Get My Look: 1. An oversized olive, army or hunter green jacket with a furry hood. 2. Pair the coat with a knit scarf. 3. Dark colored combat boots or booties. 4. A large brown leather bag completes the ensemble and holds everything needed for being out and about.
