I got this coat the other day when I visited Refine Boutique in DC and have been hooked! I love the utility look of it, plus it's faux leather so total no brainer. It's pieces like this that I get such a kick out of incorporating into my wardrobe because I would usually consider this piece outside of my comfort zone, but when I gravitated towards it I knew it was a fashion risk I had to take. This coat is a statement piece on its own so I kept the rest of my look pretty simple, a textured cropped sweatshirt and some lace up, buckle clad chunky heeled booties perfectly compliment this chic, tomboyish look. I opted for my high waisted skinnies since I am not a huge crop top fan, but high waisted bottoms paired with a crop top sure does add length to the legs. I loved playing around with proportions in this look, typically I pair my longer coats with longer tops or dresses but here I think the cropped sweatshirt works well with the longer coat. Taken any fashion risks lately? How do you step outside of your fashion comfort zone, I would love to hear!
