On my Pinterest page, there is a board titled “Outfit Inspiration.” It is exactly what it sounds like, a collection of outfits that I would like to recreate in my own wardrobe. And I thought that it might be a good idea to start recreating a few fall looks from that board here.
I like this outfit because the wearer has taken several relaxed, casual pieces and combined them to create an incredibly chic look. I love the proportions of the oversize coat with the skinny jeans. I like that the tops are just a t-shirt and a sweatshirt. And I appreciated how the accessories–a Mulberry satchel, aviators, ankle boots and a cable knit scarf–lift the look from basic to modern and stylish. I would be happy to wear this look on a fall day in D.C.
I think the key element to this look is the coat. For the set, I used a Polyvore friendly Reiss coat. However, I actually think that this coat from All Saints, with its looser fit, has better proportions. It’s a bit early for the stores to be flooded with winter coats, but here are two more options in friendlier price points from Michael Kors and Asos.
Lastly, in the photo, the woman is wearing a dark red polish. Since burgundy and oxblood are so big this season, I used Essie’s Burgundies polish instead. If you’re shy about trends, or about burgundy, your nails are a great place to wear it.
