The Perfect Wool Coat for Petite Women

When cold-weather season rolls around, I love bringing out my coat collection. Some of my favorite coats are currently 30 percent off with code ‘FRIENDS’ so if you’re looking to cozy up, now is the time! This gray wool coat for petite women is a silhouette I’m starting to really love. It’s versatile enough to where you can wear it casually or dress it up. My first lodge coat is from last winter and throughout the season, I just loved how it fit. Since I got the boucle wool version, I knew I wanted something that’s less of a statement. Before it gets too cold where you are, I want to share three reasons you need this winter coat. Plus, it’s on sale!

Styling a Statement Coat :: Rich Shades of Red

A statement coat is a must for the fall and winter. It’s the item you can throw over any outfit, walk outside into the crisp air and feel confident. My coat collection is one of my favorites and something I have been building for almost 10 years. This plaid statement coat is a heavy-duty piece with a classic silhouette. The woven fabric is a beautiful mix of rich reds with pinks and a little white to keep everything in balance. The notch lapels give that old-school look but the solo button closure makes this statement coat modern. I’m wearing size XXS in this jacket, which does have an oversized fit. This is handy for when you’re wearing thick sweaters or multiple layers. However, if you’re petite, you may need more alterations. The sleeves are a little long on me but I prefer longer sleeves to keep my wrists warm.

Have it Both Ways :: Contrast Jumpsuit & Burgundy Coat

As a working woman, I try my best to look professional while still catering to my love of fashion and standing out. For this post, I’m partnering with White House Black Market to share some of my favorite pieces from their new fall collection. What I love about this collection is it’s full of pieces you can wear to work and wear to a cocktail party or out with friends. If you work in a more conservative office it can be scary to incorporate color into your wardrobe. I recommend a neutral approach to the bulk of your outfit while throwing in colorful accessories. This fall, WHBM has beautiful burgundy, port and wine shades. These will fit into your wardrobe beautifully and can be paired with other pieces for years to come.

How to Style Sneakers for Fall

I have a confession to make: I’m a sneaker addict. I’m not quite sure when this all started, but for years now, I have been in love with sneakers. I own a ridiculous amount of pairs I’m not quite comfortable disclosing. Probably because it’s embarrassing. I cannot exactly wear sneakers to work. However, I can wear them almost everywhere else. Today I want to share how to style sneakers with style. Sneakers are getting increasingly popular and can be worn day to night. Styling them can be a tricky situation, especially since sneakers do look so good with workout clothes or athleisure. However, they can look extremely stylish if you pick the right pieces.
