Winter Coat Trend – Capes

Pea coats and parkas are nice, but if you're looking to perk up your winter wardrobe, make a statement with a cape! Capes are a big trend this season, appearing on runways and in fashion magazine, but I'd argue that they are a timeless piece that is worth the investment. Keep Your Cape Stylish and Balanced The key to wearing a cape is balance. Capes add volume to the top half of your body, so pair them with skinny jeans, pencil skirts, leggings, and tall boots to elongate the legs. If you're interested in a classic cape that you can wear for seasons to come, look for wool or flannel capes in gray, navy, black, or camel, just like you would a pea coat. - Ultimate Military Cape by Top Shop $190 - Modern Capelet by White House Black Market $188 - Crusade Cape by French Connection … [Read more...]

Gold Nugget Wrap Bracelet $64 and Rhinestone Wrap Bracelet $129 - Layer both to get Gwyneth's look. Diamond Cross Necklace $375 - There are lots … [Read more...]

Sequin Skirts A sequin skirt is on my must-have list this holiday season. Pair with a classic white button down or black turtle neck for a formal dinner, or a jean shirt or jacket for a more casual affair. Don't limit your sequin skirt to holidays - it can be brought out throughout the year for cocktail parties or a girl's night out.         Sequin Cardigans Cardigans are my all time, must have wardrobe staple. I love to layer and mix colors and textures, and what better way to do that than with a sparkly cardigan for the holidays? You can choose to go all out with gold … [Read more...]
