Nic + Zoe Statement Coat

fullsizerender-4

I love blazers, jackets and coats. Well statements ones at least. Generally I don’t like coats. Simply because they add bulk and you can’t see ones outfit.  But theres always a special one that catches my eye and I have to have it. Well thats what happened when I saw this Nic + Zoe Coat at their new King of Prussia store. 

This coat comes in a black and grey combo as well but as I said above I like to make a statement.   The sales associate advised me that most customers had opted for the understated black and grey version, which only made me want the orange and pink palette even more.

How To Wear The 70s Style Trend

sept-edit-5

Overcoat: Primark| Purse: Vintage| Jeans: Gap Curvy Cropped Jeans| Top: Nordstorm|     Shoes: Sam Edelman

No White After Labor Day? Tell’em boy bye. I’ll wear what I want when I want. Truth be told I wanted to wear this amazing suede jacket back in July but that would have been just crazy.  I’m an 80s baby (1984 to be exact)  but the 70’s are back in full effect. But I’m not a trend person. I teach women my professional style philosophy…

Style is personal. You have to find what works for you. Don’t force it. Don’t follow trends.  Know your bra size, wear shapewear and follow your heart

So when I saw this coat I knew this would be my gateway to 70s style for Fall 2016. If your new to the to the 1970s trend think, fringe, baby blue eyeshadow, platforms and flare jeans. 

Stylist Tips For Incorporating This Trend

  • Start with Accessories: an earring or shoe is a great place to start. Its small enough to wear to work but punchy enough to make an impact. 
  • Pick Neutral Colors: I choose brown so that I may wear this with many things for different occasions. 
  •  Wear Classic Shapes: Wearing trending pieces in modern shapes and silhouettes so that will stand the test of time in your closet, no matter how much you paid for the item.
