Hey girlfriend!

Today's post features a look that has a "street style" mood. It's fairly basic, however, the pieces and subtle accents, provide a bit of toughness and confidence, with a touch of glam. The star of the show is the fur (faux) bomber coat. It's chic, yet glamorous because of the rhinestone detailing along the sleeves, which adds a nice finishing touch. Sometimes, we don't need to go all out in the outfit itself, just add some interesting accessories, including an interesting coat or jacket and the whole look will look polished and stylish. Yes, sometimes less is indeed more :)

COAT: Baby Phat (really old, lol!) // PLAIN BLACK SHIRT: Cynthia Rowley (Marshalls) // JEANS: GUESS (Marshalls) // BOOTS: Adrienne Vittadini (TjMaxx) // EARRINGS: Local boutique 


When it comes to body shapes, this particular outfit, I feel, would be suitable for all. The bomber style coat adds dimension for both my pear and rectangular shapes, plus it stops in the front where the waist area is, creating an emphasis where needed. My pear shapes know that I don't generally suggest jeans that have a ton of fading on them, especially in the thigh area, since it can make them appear much larger, in this case, it's okay because any enhancement is balanced out with the coat, keeping everything well proportioned. If you are petite, I don't suggest these kind of boots worn with jeans, since they can make you appear that much more shorter and wider, especially if you are either an apple or pear shape. Instead, opt for booties, which I provided in the scroll bar above that are similar in style to the ones I wore. I'm not saying you can't wear knee high boots at all, but I would generally suggest they be worn with matching bottoms, so in this case, black jeans or black leggings, to create a lengthening and overall lean effect visually. Another thing I would alter is the coat length for all my apple shapes because it'll add more volume than needed up top. Instead, opt for one that's a little longer, such as the one below. The picture shoes the white version, but it's also available in black.


I hope you found this post inspiring! Thanks so much for stopping by and check back again real soon!
