Baby it’s cold outside. Part 2.

Ah Fall, my favorite time of the year. Don’t get me wrong, I love Summer. I love the sun and tanning on the beach and having sun kissed skin, however there is something about Fall. Whether it’s the crisp air, or beautiful colors of the leaves, Fall is a season that awakens many people. My favorite aspect of this season though is its fashion. High boots, scarves, earth tones, warmer coats and so much more, Fall offers a variety in a wardrobe that allows you to layer more items without being completely covered like in the Winter time. On Monday we took a look at Jessica Day’s (played by Zooey Deschanel) from New Girl coat choices because well, needless to say, they’re awesome. From every color and style, she’s covered them all and all the while being comfortable she makes sure she looks chic as well. Let’s continue to take a look at my favorite coat choices made by Jess!

Last post I mentioned that one of my favorite color combinations is navy and red and this jacket proves exactly why.The 2 colors give off a rich look and I would just like to point out that this whole outfit is everything I love about Fall. The knee-high cognac colored boots with the comfy coat is a cozy look that works for many occasions!

coat 2-red with black buttons

Ever since the movie Love Actually it has been my dream to buy a red coat. There is something so feminine yet classic to the look and this particular coat with the big black buttons is something I would definitely purchase.

Navy coats are the best thing that happened to the coat world because it is the perfect alternative to the black coat. It is something different without standing out too much. I have something extremely similar with the same big collar and gold buttons.

Coat 1- blue coat

I am one of those weird people that loves a good lining. Obviously I want the coat itself to be beautiful, but when something has a good inside lining, it makes me even happier. If people can get a 5 second glimpse of the lining of my coat (if it’s nice) then i’m happy. This coat is no exception. To begin, the color and style of it is adorable. It’s collar is bow shaped when closed and therefore ultra-feminine. But what’s even greater is the polka dot lining. It has completely won me over!

coat 3-pink coat

If you know me then you know it is no secret how much I love the color pink. As much as I love it though, I have never owned a fuscia pink coat like this and I strongly believe that next year I will take the plunge and go for it! It’s vibrant and girly, and just brings in fun to an outfit.

coat 6-red chechered coat

This semi red coat with black and white sleeves is something we rarely see and I am not exactly sure why. It looks like a great sweater made into a beautiful coat. It’s casual without being boring and adds in a lot of personality into your look.

So now that you’ve seen all the different styles of Jessica Day’s coat selection, it is time to prep up for the season and buy yourself a coat! Don’t always go for the classic black coat, this is your chance to think outside the box and try something different. No matter what coat you decide to choose though, make sure it suits your personality and style for this is the first item people will notice of you!

Baby, it’s cold outside.

I just got back from a sunny vacation in California and upon my return I  realized one thing: Fall is officially here. It’s chilly and I find myself pulling out my warmer clothes and shoes. Although it is heartbreaking to say goodbye to summer (cue Summer Sadness from Lana Del Rey), Fall is my favorite season to shop for. The colors and styles are extremely appealing and there’s nothing like rich warm sweaters and beautiful earth tones. Other than boots, I would say shopping for Fall coats is one of my favorite aspects of the season. As said in previous posts, I absolutely love a good coat. It is one of the most important aspects of your wardrobe because unlike your other pieces of clothing, a coat is what someone sees first, and the most of. Choosing a coat should be a well thought out process, where you decide how would you want to be perceived by others around you. Do you want to look cute? Comfortable? Chic? Sporty? The options are endless. What is important is that you decide which coat suits you and your sense of style best.

New Girl is one of my favorite TV shows right now for a number of reasons. Whether it’s because of Jessica Day‘s (played by Zooey Deschanel) quirky personality, or Scmidt (played by Max Greenfield) and Nick Miller’s (played by Jake Johnson) hysterical stories, it has made my Tuesday nights my favorite TV night (sorry Thursdays). Jess is an optimistic, bubbly person who wants her personality to shine through her smile and most importantly, her wardrobe. I have no doubt I will have another post on Jessica’s actual outfits which consists of many adorable skirts and dresses, but for this week I wanted to focus on her coatsSince this is the season where I am thinking about being cozy and trying to look cute all at once, Jessica is the perfect inspiration for that! Her coats range from different colors and cuts but one thing is for sure, everyone can find something they like within her selection! So let’s take a look and see which one you prefer!

Jessica Day is no stranger to getting herself mixed up in tricky situations. Luckily for her, when her car broke down on this breezy Fall day she was sporting her cream coat. The color and weight of the jacet is ideal for those less chilly Fall days (and Spring).

Navy and red is a great color combination and this sophisticated, “first-lady” type of coat proves exactly why. It oozes sophistication and the antique looking big gold button sets off a vintage tone. I would buy this in a heartbeat.

Keeping it classic and conservative, Jess opted for her burgundy coat with black detailing and buttons for this outing. This coat seems warmer due to its length and ideal for any occasion.

Who said coats had to have a boring color? Here Jess is wearing one of her many vibrant coats. Without going over the top, this muted teal shows that a classic cut can be paired with a different color to avoid the typical black coat.

coat 9-funny coat

Not everyone would be able to pull off a pyjama with this eccentric looking jacket in a club (and frankly, neither did she), but noone can dispute the fact that she looked adorable. This light checkered jacket with a unique collar isn’t seen often but is feminine due to the way it falls and it’s 3/4 puffier sleeves.

The pattern of this very cozzy looking coat gives off the casual yet preppy vibe. The big collar makes for a great statement and I would easily see myself using a jacket like this for every day purposes.

We shall continue on Wednesday to look through Jessica Day’s coat choices and hope it doesn’t get any colder outside until then!
