Styling 101: Cold Blooded

Learning how to style a classic trench coat and put together a chic, wholly original look with basic pieces is what today’s Styling 101 post is about. Here we took a traditional khaki trench from H&M and made it more interesting by adding a faux fur snood and fun, eye-catching vintage bracelets. Not to mention a cute Eiffel Tower button-up sweater and patent Oxford booties. 🙂

I fell head-over-heels with this look over on The Chriselle Factor and just knew that I had to buy a similar faux fur snood from Asos. As soon as it arrived in the mail I tried layering it over a few looks but really liked the way it looked with a classic trench. Et voila!
