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!

This Means Fashion.

I can name 3 good reasons why you should watch This Means War: Tom Hardy, Chris Pine and fashion. If the men weren’t eye candy enough, Lauren (played by Reeese Witherspoon) has one amazing sense of style and each outfit is as appealing to the eye as are Chris Pine’s baby blues.

Lauren is a professional woman and she makes sure to dress like it. This brown tie dress and burgundy purse is an interesting combination that I normally wouldn’t have thought of, but it works! Combining colors in the same palette is a great way to match without using complimentary colors.

You all know how I feel about a good red dress. It pops and is perfect for day time as well as night. This fitted t-shirt style dress is great for a date when you don’t want to seem too overdressed. Zippers always add a casual funky aspect to a piece (but you want to make sure to not overdo them either).

My favorite look of the entire movie: this white lace dress, with a navy blazer and nude pumps. Navy and nude is probably my favorite color combination of all time and the white lace adds a feminine, sophisticated touch. This look is appropriate for a date, or even a bigger event like a christening or engagement party.

I love how she can have such different looks in this movie. From cute and sweet to ultra sexy, this look definitely fits in the latter categorie. A short leather black skirt with a sheer black top demonstrates confidence and is a sure fire bet to impress your date. Also, you can never go wrong with the classic black Christian Louboutin shoes (with a slingback twist)!

Lauren demonstrates here that brown and black do in fact go well together. A simple black tank and black pants with a dark brown biker jacket makes her look like a CIA agent herself. Opting for a brown jacket instead of the typical black breaks down the color scheme without making anything stand out too much.

No doubt about it Lauren covered all bases of fashion from cute and feminine to sexy and sultry. She demonstrated that bold colors and simple cuts with no patterns can still make a strong statement. She clearly had taste when it came to clothes, and men! And I won’t be spoiling as to who she chooses at the end of the movie, that’s something you’ll have to find out for yourself!
