A by Anubha: Retro Swing Coat

When I attended San Francisco Fashion Week in 2013 little did I know I’d be watching a future friend’s first collection walk down the runway.

Coat Dress with A by Anubha

Is it a dress? It’s it a coat? Does it matter?

When we started this A by Anubha shoot all of the outerwear was laid out in my bedroom. With all the beautiful fabrics and divine colors spread out in front of me I immediately went for this piece.

Everything about this piece makes it wholly unique – The classic silhouette, the flattering neckline, the combination of fabrics and colors, the covered buttons.

Here I’m wearing it with simple accessories and my favorite go-with-everything peep-to booties, but you could easily kick things up a notch with statement jewelry and high-octane extras like lipstick red stilettos.

Textures with A by Anubha

When a look really comes together it speaks to the observer. Something about it reaches out to you and appeals to your senses.

With this coat when immediately stuck me was the combination of textures – The rich colors, reach-out-and-touch-them fabrics, and eye-catching details like the contrasting piping all come together to create a beautiful, couture-feeling piece that’s truly unique.

I was excited to add these velvet Max Studio pumps to my textured look. They’re the epitome of a “Statement Shoe” and I look forward to occasions worthy of pulling them out of my closet.

Between the luxurious fabric and intricate silver filigree heel, they’re the perfect sumptuous finishing touch for this Fall look.

As soon as I saw this coat I knew what was going underneath.

Sometimes a slim pant is the perfect way to complement killer outerwear, but this oxblood faux pony hair dress from Press for Piperlime was made for this coat.

Are YOU also a fan of Fall textures?

Winter White with A by Anubha

While I love bright colors and fun, bold prints – Sometimes there’s nothing more perfect than a minimal piece. Something paired down that allows your style to really shine through with accessories and extras.

One of things that I especially loved about this coat was the amazing attention to detail. The aqua piping at the cuffs and collar were the perfect little addition and I loved how the buttonholes were so eye-catching. Such creative, unique ways to give the coat a little something extra to make it stand out in a sea of white offerings for the season.

And what better way to make this killer A by Anubha coat POP than by adding a flirty floral dress?

I ultimately chose this look because the fun mixing-and-matching of the pieces really appealed to me. While I wouldn’t traditionally think of neutral sandals as a Fall staple, I loved how these nude & white heels allowed the eye focus on the coat, while my favorite monogrammed Gigi New York clutch highlighted its chic detailing.

Parisian Chic with A by Anubha

During San Francisco Fashion Week last September I met local San Francisco designer Anubha Srivastava. Her Fall 2013 collection of outerwear for A by Anubha was right up my alley – Classic, flattering pieces in bold, eye-catching colors. Bonus? The designer herself is one of those genuinely sweet people who is an absolute joy to work with.

After hitting it off during SFFW we decided to do a collaboration featuring Daytime and Nighttime Outerwear which is still one of my favorite shoots that I’ve gotten to do for MCLV.

Luckily for all of the outerwear lovers out there, A by Anubha is back with another Fall/Winter collection that you’ll be swooning over in no time. From Winter White to Parisian Chic, these coats are just the ticket for this season.

I love a good peplum and when I saw the subtle flair on this lipstick red jacket it was love at first sight. What better way to set off the color than a classic pair of dark wash Paige Denim jeans?

I may have titled this look Parisian Chic and done a bit of Bardot-channeling while I styled it, but there’s also a bit of an Italian flair to the look as well. I could picture this look just as easily sitting at a café on Piazza San Marco in Venice as I could strolling the Champs-Élysées in Paris, shopping bags in hand.

What’s YOUR dream outerwear piece for Fall?
