Coordinate your beret with your trench coat.

A lot of people are scared to be too matchy-matchy when it comes to putting together an outfit, but this New Yorker pulled it off!

Matching the color of your coat to your hat is a perfect way to balance a look. Wearing the same color on different parts of the body allow it to stand out instead of turning into a potential sea of red. This New Yorker used a red beret and wool coat for her pops of color and neutralized the rest of the outfit with an all-black base. Also, try mixing textures like leather and velvet for even more contrast, as seen here.

Outfit Details:

  • Coat – Thrifted
  • Beret – Store on West 4th
  • Top – Thrifted
  • Pants – Thrifted
  • Fanny Pack – Store on Canal St.

The 1970’s called and they LOVE your pants.

This groovy New Yorker is rocking a head to toe vintage look with pieces dating back to the seventies. Bell bottoms are have been returning to the shelves of mainstream stores like Zara and H&M over the past year, but consider yourself lucky if you find an authentic pair.

If you’re down to try a retro style, bell bottoms are a great way to accentuate your curves. Tuck in a bright sweater or tie a vintage tee at the waist to maintain the hourglass illusion.  Make your outfit flow from top to bottom by layering with an oversized cape coat, as seen here. Don’t forget to wear a heeled bootie to elongate your legs and avoid being weighed down by the oversized coat.

Outfit Details:

  • Jeans – Thrift Shop Find, Circa 1970
  • Coat – Thrift Shop Find in Paris, Circa 1970
  • Sweater – Thrift Shop Find
  • Boots – Online from Unknown Store

A cropped orange puffer, I could not resist!

After naming UltraViolet the 2018 Color of the year, Pantone included Oriole, a vibrant orange, as part of the year’s color scheme.

Wearing bright orange is a fun way to add some life to your outfit in the middle of an NYC winter. This New Yorker chose to sport the color with a trendy cropped puffer coat. When styling vibrant, colors keep the rest of your outfit simple and allow the colorful piece to make a statement. If you’re going for a coat like this one, try pairing with pair vintage jeans with a raw cut hem. The hem adds an extra flare but doesn’t compete with the coat for attention.

Outfit Details:

  • Coat – H&M
  • Jeans – Vintage Levi’s (Purchased from Poshmark)
  • Shirt – Gap
  • Hat – Carhart
  • Scarf – Scottish Festival Find
  • Boots – Tommy Hilfiger
