MCLV Style: High-Low Jacket

You can never have too many black jackets.

Well fine, I suppose that my deep and abiding love for outerwear may have influenced that statement somewhat. But despite that, in my opinion, like the ubiquitous little black dress, the little black jacket works for virtually any scenario.

It works for the just as well for the office, for playing, and for real life…

While I’m not a fan of mullet dresses, for me the silhouette of this jacket evokes a military or old-fashioned costume-like coat rather.

Or even the Britney Spears-style circus ringleader… 🙂

So what do you do when you love jackets but don’t want to just wear the same one over and over again? You find ones with a little something special.

Like, say, a high-low hemline.

The hemline is really what takes this piece to the next level – It gives the silhouette an eye-catching, dramatic quality that makes it different from the other black jackets in my closet.

The look above is a variation on my standard Fall look. It’s a combination of an easy-to-wear t-shirt dress paired with a jacket and bold accessories like a snakeskin handbag and boldly colored heels. Easy peasy and you’re out the door.

So tell me – What’s YOUR favorite hemline when it comes to outerwear? How do you feel about this high-low style?

MCLV Style: Army Green Trench

There are few things that I love more than a well-tailored trench coat. It’s classic, it goes with everything, and you can literally throw it over any old thing and take your look to a new level.

I mean… There’s a reason all the most stylish women in history are known lovers of a good trench coat!

So when I was browsing the Fall outerwear on the Tobi website I immediately zeroed in on this army green coat. Classic with a twist is just my style!

The weather in San Francisco during the Fall and Winter is unpredictable to say the least. It’ll go from thick fog to clear blue skies to rain in a single day. Without notice. So pieces like this coat are perfect since they’re lightweight and easy to carry around.

I live for killer cold weather outwear, but San Francisco isn’t necessarily the place for those heavier overcoats.

You’d be sweating in minutes!

Another thing that I love about trench coats is how versatile they are. Pair a timeless trench with a little black dress and a pair of pumps for a Jackie O-inspired look that works for everything from date nights to a business meeting.

Want a little edge in your daily life? A striped top, jeans, ankle boots, and trench – Bam! Street style chic with virtually zero effort.

Tell me – What’s YOUR favorite way to wear a trench? How do you feel about colored versions like this green one?

MCLV Style: Tobi Boho Fringe

Oversized, open cardigans are a favorite of mine. They’re especially ideal for San Francisco where the weather can be – Shall we say – Unpredictable.

I mean, when it goes from foggy to pouring to sunny in a given day, a girl needs to have some easy ways to cover up!

The long, open cardi style has been a favorite in recent seasons because it’s so easy. You can wear it the way you would wear a pashmina – Layering it over your shoulders when it gets breezy – Or you can build your whole look around it as a statement piece.

And in my book, a piece that is versatile enough to go from an accessory to outwear, is a serious win.

Also, bonus points for some seriously killer fringe!

This subtle striped boho cardi from Tobi is perfect for Spring – It’s eye-catching enough to let it play center stage, but relaxed and casual enough to throw over just about anything.

Wear your favorite cardigan over Summer dresses while you’re toasting sunsets & sitting poolside, pair with a crop top or romper for fringe-approved festival season, or perfect your travel style by throwing it over a comfy jumpsuit on your next trip!
