Outfit Of The Day For November 8, 2011. Roughening Up The Sleek

November 8, 2011 • Fashion, Fashion Blog, Outfit Of The Day

This sleek Zara coat with leather sleeves reminds me of a Helmut Lang design, and I know I will have plenty of opportunities to wear it with my typical Sprockets styling in the future! But today I wanted to toughen up the look by wearing faded denim jeans, combat boots and a rugged black handbag with heavy brass hardware. I think the pieces are polished and pulled together, yet also a little rough around the edges for a fun fall day to evening look!

Sweater: Amaya Arzuga funnel neck sweater, no longer available. This Only Mine Rib Trim Cashmere Cowl Neck Sweater in Charcoal $148 is similar.

Jeans: Current/Elliott The Boyfriend Jeans, $206

Coat: Zara Coat with Leather Sleeves, $189

Handbag: I wish I could remember the designer’s name! It does not have a label. Anyone? It was on Lucky Breaks about 6 years ago and Lauren urged me to get it! This Burberry Medium Hobo Bag $1495 has a similar ruggedness.

Boots: See by Chloe Wedge Combat Boots, no longer available. These Sam Edelman ‘Teresa’ Boots, $249.95 are similar.
