Fall Trend: Statement Coats (literally)

Whatever your thoughts are on the now infamous coat worn by the First Lady, she ignited a trend. Everywhere you look there are jackets making a statement, and I mean that literally. It seems as though you can not find a T-shirt without something written on it these days: Feminist, Love Wins, Rose All Day and the list goes on… Now this is translating to jackets and coats. There is a desire to have our clothes literally say something about who we are, what we are thinking and how we are feeling. And most of all, a way of expressing our fabulousness (is that a word?).

A message I personally prefer is that of the “love letter” jacket by Cinq a Sept. This is a fun, versatile jacket that would look adorable paired with skinny jeans and Stan Smiths.

And then you have the very literal brand Off White with the creation of this self-proclaimed “biker” jacket.

Looking for a lower price point? I have you covered. Fashion Nova just released this “Flawless” denim jacket perfect for this era of women’s empowerment and self-love.

Until next time, stay fabulous!

Making “Fast Fashion” Work for you.

“Fast fashion is a contemporary term used by fashion retailers to express that designs move from the catwalk quickly to capture current fashion trends.”

Keeping up with the trends isn’t easy. These days it’s simple for retailers to put out different designs based on what’s just been on the catwalk and to “knock off” designer duds within a week or month. Staying fresh is not an easy task. I work at a luxury retailer so I have a deep appreciation for designer made clothes, shoes and accessories. However it’s not lost on me that these things are out of reach of the average person, myself included.

Retailers like H&M, Forever 21, Zara and the like have made being on trend, current and fashionable a possibility for the average person. With that in mind it’s not always easy to pick through the massive amounts of inventory they have to find the items that work for you.

Here are some of my favorite pieces that reflect current styles and just might be right for you, if you have any questions about how to wear these or other styles please feel free to email me: hilary@welldressedboston.com

  1. H&M Viscose Floral Dress. This reminds me of the dresses and boots that Victoria Beckham has been seen in recently and is a look that many can pull off. It’s not tight, shear or short! It’s a pretty, comfortable and confident look. hmviscosefloraldress2) Paper Waist Culottes from Forever 21.  The way it’s styles is cute and a great going out look, or if you’re a stylist like me you could wear it to work. But if you need a more “buttoned up” look I would pair these with some boots like the look above. A maroon or red color. A button down or cami with a  sweater or jacket make it perfect for work.                                              forever21paperbagculottes3) Zara embellished sock booties. Did you know that Zara has one of the best shoe shops?! And these sock booties are a great addition to anyone’s wardrobe looking to be on trend and fashionable this fall.
