MCLV Style: Striped Spring Separates

Matching separates are a long-time favorite of mine – Check out this black & white look from a 2014 trip to Los Angeles. It’s a really fun and striking style, especially when there are prints involved.

And luckily for us, Spring is the perfect time to deploy this fabulous, flattering style!

Shopping local is my favorite way to find new goodies, and a perusal of the chic racks at Ghirardelli Square’s Les Mechantes afforded me some Must Haves for Spring this season.

Among the dresses, and lightweight outerwear, were these highly covetable striped pieces in royal blue and palest pink.

To be completely honest, this isn’t a color that I’m normally drawn to when I’m shopping for myself. It can be hard to pull off and oftentimes clashes with a person’s skin tone or hair color. But despite that sliiiight internal hesitation my hand immediately reached out for this. And I absolutely loved how it looked once I slipped it on!

The soft, touchable fabric, the surprisingly flattering color, and the beautiful wide collar all came together to create the perfect cover-up.

What I especially like about this coat is how perfect for this is for office fashion – Throw it over a wrap dress or separates for a chic look to and from your office.

What’s YOUR favorite color for outerwear?
