As lovely as a wool overcoat looks in the winter, the warmth and coziness levels often seem to leave a little something to be desired. This year, I’ve found myself reaching for the practical parka more and more often as I head out the door. To keep it the look from appearing too boring, I like to throw on heeled but comfortable booties, a structured bag, and a healthy dose of bright lipstick to lend some polish to an otherwise casual outfit.
Special thanks to Kenneth Wyse at Topshop Personal Shopping who helped me get set up with the pieces in this look. If you haven’t tried this service before, I highly recommend doing so. It’s pretty unique for a brand at this price point to offer something like this! You book a (complimentary!) appointment by emailing or calling in advance, and a stylist will pull pieces according to your needs and have them ready to try on in a suite. So great for finding what you need for upcoming holiday parties!
