Warm Up With a Cool Coat: Southwestern Inspired Jacket Outfit

Temperatures are dropping and winter is definitely here – though it’s colder in some places than others. With the temperature changing, our Beverly Hills store Stylists were inspired to create an incredibly warm look that’s cultural, comfortable, casual and chic.

Utilizing neutral basics and a key statement piece, you can certainly recreate this look on your own. Keep reading for tips on how to take on winter in style.

 

Southwestern Flare

The Gladys Long Sleeve Coat is certainly a statement piece: luxurious and beautiful. The Southwest region in the US is a mix of cultures. The area’s fashion takes cues from Mexico and Native American tribes in the area.

The style’s infiltration of the fashion world came as designers of note began taking notice of the street style that was developing–outfits with pops of incredibly bright colors and overlapping geometric patterns were the norm and eventually made their way to the most notable runways.

 

The Gladys Coat is an open-front cotton-wool blend woven in this sumptuous brocade fabric; side note: it’s  dry clean only and should only be spot treated with cold water. Designed with a cape-like structure, it’s broad in the shoulder and is meant to be worn open in the front. It’s warm, but perfect for layering. The piece is incredibly versatile. 

Here it is styled with the cashmere blend short-sleeved Sammy Beige Mock Neck Top knit sweater (which features a cap sleeve and damask print) and the Pony Vintage Eve Mini Clutch in pewter/gold metal (available in store).

 

Let’s not forget that a look like this is built on base layers. A sweater like the Sammy Mock Neck above is best outfitted with a seamless bra like our Mackenzie T-Shirt Bra.

The breathable, lightweight fabric goes great under a warm, form-fitting top; the low profile design is discrete and comfortable, but provides maximum lift and support. Pair it with the Mackenzie bikini panties and it’ll be your little secret how sexy you are underneath all that style.

 

Makeup Matters

You can dress the look up or down without changing any of the clothing pieces by adjusting your makeup.

For work, opt for a lighter, more natural tone like our Dusty Rose lip gloss combined with the lighter neutral tones of our Florentine Sunset Eyeshadow Palette.

When 5 o’clock rolls around, dab off that subtle pink and put on a matte lipstick like our Red Brick Mousse Lip Color. Touch up your eyes with the deep brown in the eyeshadow palette to really wow that happy hour crowd.
