I’ve been wearing the same one for over five years, so a coat with a more modern oversized silhouette has been on my wish list. I also needed some lighter-weight sweaters for lounging at home. The wider-leg and darker jeans have also been on my radar.
Several people have asked me to share some inspiration and sources for reasonably priced items for fall. As always, my choices are classic, simple items that can be worn for a few seasons or years.
Some updated styling tips include wearing larger earrings and carrying a handbag or tote as a clutch. I found the earrings at T.J.Maxx, and the shoes were from Nordstrom last year. They are by Vince Camuto.
When I saw this coat, it ticked off all the boxes. Since we rarely have freezing weather, I can wear it for most of the fall, winter, and spring on cool days.
The Amina Double-Faced Top Coat is here. I bought it in Heather Gray in a size medium. It is excellent to wear over blazers and cozy sweaters but is best for mild winters since it isn’t lined.
The Merino Wool Turtleneck Sweater is here. I bought a size medium in black. It looks great dressed up with nice slacks or jeans and boots. The neck isn’t too tight, and the fabric isn’t itchy.
The V-Neck Forever Sweater is here. I bought the Heather Gray and Black in a size medium. They are soft and not at all bulky, so they look great with silk scarves and jeans or tailored slacks.
The Crew Neck Forever Sweater is here. I bought it in Heather Gray, Preppy Navy, and Black. These sweaters are the perfect foundation under jackets and with silk scarves, dressy slacks, skirts, or jeans.
The Chunky Cardigan is here. I bought the Light Heather Gray in size medium. It looks great with white, blue or black jeans. I wore it with black jeans and a v-neck black camisole and received many compliments.
The High Rise Stride Wide-Leg Jeans are here. If you want a more tailored and modern fit without the pleating, this is a good-looking pair of jeans at a great price. I bought a regular-length size 28 to wear with block-heeled booties.
The High Rise ’70s Flare Jeans here are also great fitting jeans that give the same look without the fuller leg at the thigh.
I planned to take lots more pictures of the garments to show how I plan to wear them. However, another storm rolled in, and the lighting vanished. A summary of recent looks is here.
