It’s Alissa from from Stylish Curves again! I love it when fall comes around because that means it’s time for coat season. When Evans sent me this super cute toggle coat I couldn’t wait to wear it. It’s still 90 degrees here in NYC, but having the jacket now allowed me to play around with some outfit ideas in preparation for the cool fall weather.
Below are 3 ways I will be wearing this toggle coat.
For the first look, I chose to wear the coat with one of my favourite floral dresses. I paired it with burgundy tights and camel coloured studded ankle boots for what I would call a girlie, slightly quirky look. Wearing the coat with this spring like dress is perfect for those early fall days.
My second look is for those days when it’s extra chilly. I threw my faux fur vest over the coat as a layering piece. Most people just put layers on under the coat and never really think about layering over their coat. I think fur vests are a great way to give your jackets a new energized look. Since I layered on top, I kept things simple with a turtleneck, straight jeans, and a pair of blush coloured suede heels. I would call this my downtown NYC celebrity look. In New York, you always see celebrities with their oversized shades on, a fur, and super high heels. This is my plus size girl interpretation!
The third look is what I would call a little preppy. It reminds me of back to school. For this look I layered a crisp white collar shirt under a bright yellow cardigan complete with my camel studded ankle boots for a little flair. One of things I like about this coat is the colour. It’s not your basic black or one of your blindingly bright colours. It’s a nice shade of light blue which means it looks great with a variety of pastel colours like yellow.
Which look is your favourite?
