I know many of you have been waiting for a belted wrap coat that is of good quality, warm, and petite-friendly – well, patience has paid off! The wool-blend material of this wrap coat is soft and cozy (and lined), and the open wrap style will adjust to fit either a little or a lot of layering underneath (or to conceal indulgent holiday meals : ) Fit is true to size – I have a feeling petite sizes will go quickly!
Today’s post touches on two popular requests that I’ve been receiving already for holiday (yes, the best time of the year is here, and I’m not complaining!): 1. holiday outfits that are office-appropriate, and 2. outfits involving tights for our rapidly-dropping temps. I’m partnering with Ann Taylor to share a look that is festive yet professional, and works well both with or without hosiery. Navy tights and similar-colored shoes together are the foundation of many of my cold-weather outfits. Compared to basic black, I feel navy tights pair more easily with softer hues and vibrant color palettes, without looking too stark!
The embellished collar on my blouse and metallic & sequin flecks throughout this skirt are small ways to add holiday touches to a look, without going over the top or baring much skin. I love putting together separates that end up looking almost like a dress! Please note that as with most Ann Taylor bottoms, I took this skirt in about 2 inches for it to fit higher up on my waist.
Trying out the silk scarf wrapped around the handles, to give one of my favorite older bags a new look! And here’s how the jacket looks when open:
Thank you Ann Taylor for partnering on this post.
