Style // Well Coated

Cincinnati fashion stylist blog #saksstyle

As a thank you for being part of the Fall Contemporary Event, Saks offered us hosts a store credit as a sort of choose-your-own-reward. Awesome, yes, but I couldn’t decide whether to splurge on one high-end blowout piece, or get a few less expensive things that I’d wear more often. After cruising the Contemporary section 347 times and not finding exactly what I was looking for, I headed upstairs–surely everything would be too expensive, but I figured I should at least check things out.

After grazing and finding nothing in my price range, I was about to head back downstairs when my friend pointed at a coat.

“What about this?”

Trina Turk coat, Saks

I took a closer look: dark blue wool with black leather trim (black and navy always feels very French to me), a textured stand-up collar, and a curved hem that reminded me of a cross between The Little Prince and a Revolutionary Soldier’s uniform, all at the perfect price. Amazing. I can throw it on over pretty much anything and look at least somewhat put together, which seriously comes in handy when I’m in all-sweats-all-the-time mode.

    Love the coat! I love the dark blue and black combo! A little edgy and a lot glamorous!
