Trend Alert: Menswear Inspired Plaid Coat

 

 

This trend is one that I have been lovvvvving. Don’t get me wrong, I am a girl’s girl, but I like the idea of mixing menswear into my wardrobe! I am also a big fan of wearing a fun jacket with an all black outfit underneath. It’s my favorite way to pack for cold weather trips too! Pack all basics – white & black turtlenecks, jeans, neutral sweaters, etc – and then just bring a few really fun outerwear pieces.

This plaid coat is from ASOS, one of my favorite places to online shop! I think it’s the best place to shop for trendy pieces that you want to try out, but not spend a fortune on. I wish the weather here in Fayetteville would decide to stay at a cooler temperature so I could bring this bad boy out more often! πŸ˜‰

As the holidays draw closer, all I can think about is how much I miss my favorite city, NYC! I have never been during the holidays, and it’s a dream of mine. I would love to see all of the Christmas window displays, the giant tree in Rockefeller Center, and Central Park in the snow! As a Texas/Arkansas girl, I don’t get to see as much snow as I would like, and I can just imagine how pretty Central Park looks! Does anyone want to hop on a plane to JFK with me?!

Thanks for reading!

xoxo, Riley
