Winter Florals & Layering 101

Sunday, February 16, 2014

H&M coat, jacket, & blouse | Forever 21 pants | Target heels

If you follow me on Instagram, you probably recognize this outfit from a week ago. I wore this layered look to Lucky Magazine's #LuckyInstameet, where I received a tour of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week and mingled with fashion superstars such as Eva Chen, Rumi Neely, and Aimee Song. I feel so blessed to have had this opportunity, since only 15 "Instagrammers" were chosen to participate. Thanks to Mercedes Benz, I was also able to attend the Parkchoonmoo show on Sunday. She presented the most stunning outerwear - check out a video clip on my Instagram

For this look, I wanted to create an interesting mix of prints and textures since I knew I'd have to do some hardcore layering. These pants always keep an outfit interesting with their bold print. Layering tip: Wear leggings underneath loose pants to battle the cold! On top, my layers include: a chiffon blouse, a faux suede moto jacket, and my mixed media coat with quilted sleeves. Each piece is light enough to feel comfortable, though heavy enough to stay warm when layered. I also chose a fairly simple color palette to keep a chic look despite the various textures.

I hope you are all staying warm this winter! It's definitely been a harsh one. Thanks for stopping by, and I'll talk to you soon!

P.S. - I have also worn half these pieces in previous posts. There is no shame in repeating!
