So I briefly came out of hibernation to sport a borrowed from the boys look for the winter featuring this stylish glen plaid jacket. Don’t be deceived by my usual girly and feminine demeanor as I am a huge fan of menswear-inspired pieces. So today, come explore with me on how you can stay chic and warm during the winter by incorporating a bit of menswear into your wardrobe.
Since we are in the middle of winter, a great coat is a must to combat the cold. However, winter dressing doesn’t have to be limited to boring patterns! I always love the effortless glen plaid simply because it is a classic pattern that is very sophisticated and very English. Whenever I work with styles that are inspired by the British, I know it will be a look that is here to stay. I absolutely love this long glen plaid single breasted coat because it has a good chic length for someone petite like me and it is very undemanding which makes it simple to style and accessorize. However, the material isn’t the thickest, so to make it completely winter-worthy I recommend layering with a nice thermos and sweater underneath.
Whether it is a puffer, shearling or long coat like this glen plaid jacket, you will definitely need to accessorize accordingly to stay nice and cozy in sub-zero degrees. Since the key to a borrowed from the boys look is to add feminine touches and play with proportions, you can really have fun with your winter accessories. For these touches of girly (which you are use to from me), I went with a matching purple beanie and scarf set to really give flow and purpose to the whole look. Continuing with this flow, I wore my velvet crushed Jeffrey Campbell booties from the fall which was not only surprisingly easy to walk in the snow but made the outfit that much more interesting.
