I’m a big fan of coated denim. Certain finishes look extremely leather-like, and others add texture like the subtle reptile print on this jacket. I’ve been loving solids lately, but enjoyed this pop of busy print atop the black-on-black pattern. Stealth print mixing.
I made a promise to myself to avoid open necklines and dress warmer this winter. I adore the look of scoops and v’s and can’t seem to resist them occasionally, but I am SO much happier in several layers and a nice, big scarf. If my neck is cold, my everything is cold. This geometric pattern scarf is large and thin – just how I like ‘em – and I love that it has bold shapes in a totally neutral palette.
I feel like for most people, it’s hands, feet, or neck that need to be covered in order to achieve total body warmth. Do you fall into one of those three camps?
I bought this scarf at Zara in Cardiff, more or less on a whim. It’s a cozy and versatile scarf, to be sure, but I thought of it as more utilitarian than anything. But holy moly, does it ever draw comments. Of all of the wildly printed, brightly colored scarves I own and wear, I would never have pegged this one as the crowd favorite. Go figure.
Do you have anything in your closet that gets lots of unexpected praise?
