Belted Oversized Duster Coat

Belted Oversized Duster Coat

Is it really fall without houndstooth? I feel like during this season you must wear houndstooth at least once. Once fall arrives we all pull the flannel shirts, plaid plants and wool. However, houndstooth along with tweed are those classic pieces that we old off for those holiday parties and holiday portraits. Personally, I love tweed and houndstooth alike but I love to reserve those prints for more formal or special occasions.

Outfit Details

I sometimes walk into my closet and I know exactly what I am going to wear. But then there are times when I just stand in the middle of my closet with a blank stare. Those are my “stylist block” moments because I know that I have more than enough clothes it’s just that I don’t know WHAT I want to wear. I noticed this pretty little top glimmering in my dark closet at a time when I had “stylist block.” As soon as I pulled it out of the hanger, I knew exactly what I was going to wear it with. Despite the fact that this is a vintage shirt, I love that it is still wearable and the pointed collar pays homage to its age. I wore my faux-leather trim pencil skirt, black stilettos and my current favorite, black oversized duster coat. I am in absolute love with this YEOHLEE duster coat that I purchased at a local thrift store for $5.00 (half off sale!) I sometimes amaze myself at my luck! I finished off my duster coat with an oversized bow belt from H&M that I also purchased at a thrift store. I kept accessories at a minimum by wearing bold red lips, my go to Furla handbag and a pair of pearl earrings.
