Wool Blend Moto Coat in Black – $25.00 at Charlotte Russe
Wear this coat to work, class, or a fancy night out!
For a casual, everyday look, layer this coat over comfy fall staples. A plaid flannel shirt and straight leg jeans give off a tomboyish vibe, while the moto detailing on the coat and boots adds an edgy touch. Give the outfit extra polish with a swipe of pretty burgundy lipstick.
This sophisticated look would be perfect for a fashionable job or internship. Pair a simple black turtleneck (a trendy staple at the moment) with a sleek wrap pencil skirt. Layer the coat over the top and rock black tights underneath. Lastly, slip on a pair of black stiletto booties for a dramatic touch.
For a night out, balance the edginess of the coat with pretty, feminine pieces. A lace-detailed a-line dress and red block heels add a fancy, flirty vibe to the ensemble. Lastly, grab a metallic clutch with chain detailing (a nod to moto hardware) to carry your essentials.
