Styling a Purple Jacket
JACKET: Tahari | JEANS: Target | BOOTS: Circus by Sam Edelman | SUNGLASSES: Target (available in store) | BAG: Forever 21
I got this purple jacket last year at a Nordstrom Rack sample sale. I absolutely love the color and style. It’s very casual feeling because it has kind of a laid-back style to it. It doesn’t have any closures and makes me feel like I am wearing a robe. I feel like it is so nice to just have to throw on when you are chilly. I don’t wear it too often though because it is slightly too large and a bit itchy if I am wearing short sleeves. Also, for some reason I just kind of overlook it. I feel like I will be wearing it a bit more now though because I kind of rediscovered it. You know when you just forget about something in your wardrobe?
It can be a bit tricky to style because of the color. Obviously it is purple and not a neutral color. I guess that means I can wear it with other neutral colors or more complementary ones. I do wear a lot of color. Many items I own would clash with this coat. I decided to play it safe with this outfit and wear these dark skinny jeans and a light sea foam sweater. I feel like it works because it’s a few pops of color but isn’t too over the top. Also, I really love sea foam and purple together. It’s one of my favorite color combinations. Do you have any bright colored coats? If so, how do you style them?
