Blue Black Hues

The dark color palette of winter can easily take over your wardrobe. Why not brighten it up with a colorful statement coat to throw over the neutral under layers. This double-breasted boxy powder blue 80’s inspired coat from Reiss creates a stimulating color contrast and immediately adds an interesting androgynous factor to the look with the high collar and the bulky lapels.

The neutral under-layering of this look consisted of a color-blocked cashmere turtleneck sweater and my favorite embroidered knit drop crotch pants. The embroidery on the pants and the asymmetrical ivory panel on the sweater are the subtle details that make basic under-layering a little more stimulating.

Why not feel like a champion when rocking shoes that look like they came out of the wardrobe of King Louis XIV and subtly tweaked to fit our current-time shoe silhouettes. A well done job by the “Paris Collection” at H&M! The immaculate construction of these beautiful elongated suede shoes with the bejeweled front buckle detailing plus the comfort factor?!.. I’m sold!
