Sometimes you have to skip the “inspired” part and go straight for the real deal. I’ve been looking for just the right menswear-inspired coat that is slightly oversized with some subtle draping. I finally found it in Yesstyle’s mens section – which has been quite good to me in terms of sweaters and jackets.
I love how the collar on this jacket casually drapes when unbutton but becomes streamlined when buttoned up. Such an easy transformation that’s just too good to be true.
While I know this coat will be a staple piece for the season with its effortless ability to be thrown together with leather pants or jeans (given that the SoCal weather will cooperate), I liked playing with the short/long/high proportions for this outfit. Turtlenecks with shorts and shorts with long coat all stirred together with knee-high boots. A winning combination in my book.
