The weather in NC is always unpredictable this time of year! This week alone, we’ve had what feels like 3 different seasons in one. My go-to outfits always revolve around black but my secret to looking stylish in in the cold is to throw on a statement coat.
This coat is nearly 10 years old but I still pop it on when I want to look stylish in the cold with little effort. Unfortunately, I don’t think Plenty by Tracy Reese is making outerwear anymore but I’ve linked some similar styles below. I layer it with my favorite cashmere turtleneck and it’s warm enough for me to run around town, but when I come inside I’m not having to unwrap a ton of layers.
I’m always on the go these days between client meetings, my workroom or the little studio space I share with Amber. Even though the temps don’t get below freezing during the day too much here in Raleigh, I still keep a rotation of colorful, well-fitted coats for easy winter layering.
One of my pet peeves is being weighed down with a heavy bag if it’s not needed. So most likely, if you run into me on the go, I’m carrying a clutch! I just keep my essentials and you wouldn’t believe how much work I get done from my iPhone.
