The cape coat is an exciting way to add dimension to your winter look. After making a huge comeback on the Fall/Winter 2020 runways, style-watchers are expecting the statement silhouette to stick around for the long haul. Wear yours with a top-handle bag, a cognac belt, and a matching pair of boots.
For something elegant that you can wear to meetings, lunch, and everything in between, consider employing a knit dress with a pair of smart loafers and a warm wool blazer. If you hail from a colder climate, beat the chill by pairing your loafers with fashionable socks or tights.
On errand-heavy days, leggings and sneakers can feel like the only thing that makes sense. All it takes is the right add-ons to make them stylish and weather-appropriate. Simply incorporate a luxe knit and a matching trenchcoat to elevate the athleisure pieces.
For a day of shopping or a trip to the supermarket, a little bit of glamour goes a long way. Along with your oversized carryall, slip on a houndstooth coat and a pair of chunky loafers. Top it off with a silky headscarf, á la Audrey Hepburn.
Everyone should have a dependable winter whites outfit in their arsenal. Need a no-fail template that works for women of all ages? Try pairing an ice white roll-neck with a matching pair of jeans, topped off with a cream-toned wool coat. From there, bring in your desired pair of boots — Sam Edelman’s Carney boots resemble Melany’s lace-up style above.
