As the weather drastically drops in temperature each day, the more layers of clothing go up! This shoot was inspired by my love for 40's/50's Harper's Bazaar. The focus around this post is the fabulous red coat, (which happens to be a long blazer with a contrasting black lapel.) It is from one of my favorite online boutique's, Little By Little (http://lblboutique.com/). Their clothing is just adorable and they truly know how to bring an outfit together, little by little, with their ever so functioning pieces.
The great thing about this blazer is that you can wear it so many different ways. I belted it to give it a more vintage feel, but you can also wear it open freely over an outfit. It has a beautiful black lining to add chic sophistication. To check it out, here's the direct link http://lblboutique.com/collections/coats-jackets/products/red-longline-blazer-with-contrast-lapel. It also comes in royal blue, so be sure to check that out as well at http://lblboutique.com/collections/coats-jackets/products/royal-blue-longline-blazer-with-contrast-lapel.
I also added an antique bow and cameo broach. I love adding broaches to cardigans, sweaters, coats, and even hats. It will always bring a classic look to any outfit.
It wouldn't feel complete without a fur hat, of course... I may look like one of the guards for the royal palace but I think black and red is such an easy combination.
To go along with the look, I added my go-to black satin Mary Jane's. My lace bag was actually made by my great grandmother. It really was made to match a 20's style dress she designed.
My gray scarf is by Geoffrey Beene. I love that I can wear it with almost anything this winter, and it has a nice soft feel to it.
Textured tights are great for the winter if you would rather wear them under an outfit than a pair of leggings. These are a small texture, but bold textures can be great as well.
