Longline Coat

Coat: Miu Miu, Dress: 3.1 Philip Lim, Thights: Hue, Boots: Nine West, Earrings: H&M, Clutch: ASOS, Sunglasses: H&M

Wow! Can we talk about longline coats? This season they are flowy, long and epically cool; the ultimate fashion must-have and the options are endless. Below you'll find pieces from designers like Temperley London, Prada, Vivenne Westwood, Cédric Charlier and Jacques Vert.  It is only fitting that for today's posts I wore my favorite Miu Miu black coat and paired with neutral 3.1. Philip Lim dress to keep it simple.

In today's look, menswear-inspired basics teamed with feminine details are subversively sexy and so right now.  Layering lends a laid-back air to this outfit and to loosen it up I started with a lace top and wide leg linen pants. Crochet cardigan adds on a classic elegance. Simple accessories like belt, clutch and chunky necklace underline the feminine side.  Navy blue color made news on the fall runways and the long knitted scarf with wool coat both in navy are perfect for chilly days. Contrary to popular belief, you don't need to teeter in high heels to look hip, unless you want to of course. Cow print loafers or high heel ankle boots are an especially cool look this season.

Nude, beige or creme never goes out. Those colors are perennial, everlasting, infinite and make me feel natural and special. I love to wear nude all over and I indulge in everything womanly. My favorite is the dress of course but I also adore this "shrunken" style blazer (although it is a bit wrinkled from sitting in the car for too long). Flash of gold adds a rich element to this look. 

I want to hear from you! Send me pictures of your favorite nude, beige or creme outfit. I would love to include these in my "nude awakenings" hall of fame and feature them in my blog.


MORE NUDES

The strongest coats this season are punched-up classics: a peacoat in brilliant blush (almost nude) at Temperley London from the Winter 2014 collection, is a contemporary take on the classic riding coat.

The newly minted perennial got a fresh spin in the form of garment dyed jeans at Brunello Cucinelli and urban patchwork at JUNYA WATANABE COMME DES GARÇONS.

Second Look: Sunglasses: Linda Farrow, Earrings: Dinny Hall, Sweatshirt: Moschino, Jacket: MCQ BY ALEXANDER MCQUEEN, Shoes: JIMMY CHOO, Jeans: JUNYA WATANABE COMME DES GARÇONS, Bag: Aspinal of London, Ring:Dinny Hall

I love when designers play with patterns, textures and colors. Inspired by an 18th century Spanish chasuble, this close-fitting dress from the Temperley London Winter 2014 collection is folkloric in both tint and texture.

Even when dressing down a bit let color be your guide. Here are few playful pieces. Nude fedora hat, blush knit sweater and beige cashmere sweatpants jump-start a super comfy and bold look.
