Red is perfect for the upcoming holidays (how is the year almost over?) – it’s such a festive and cheery color. I paired it with one of my favorite buys of late, these plaid pants, to create a perfect end of fall look. I’m definitely going to making the most use of this coat in the coming weeks: I’ll be pairing it for a work look with a turtleneck and trousers and with this sweater dress for a festive holiday gathering.


SHOP THE LOOK:

Red coat – Banana Republic (similar here {70% off} & here {45% off})

White knit top – Zara (similar here {2 colors} & here {7 colors})

Plaid ankle pants – A New Day (similar here {40% off} & here)

Black chelsea boots – Cole Haan (similar here {60% off; under $80} & here {under $100})

Snapshots: dressing room outfits

outfits comment

Dressing room try on | see all the pieces on www.shoppingmycloset.com

Black turtleneck | plaid ankle trousers | see the details on www.shoppingmycloset.com

Black turtleneck {5 colors} | plaid trousers

I’ve been looking for a plain black turtleneck. This one fit the criteria but was a little itchy (due to the wool) – might need to soften it. The plaid pants were so cute with the button details on the leg

Pink ribbed knit button detail dress | see the details on www.shoppingmycloset.com

Pink knit ribbed button detail dress

I bought this dress in navy but wanted to see how the pink one looked. It’s really pretty!

Navy tank dress |  see the details on www.shoppingmycloset.com

Navy ruched sleeveless tank dress {9 colors} // (long sleeve version here {7 colors})

This dress has over 1,100 reviews! I’m going to add my positive rating for it, too. It’s meant to be fitted – I went with a small. The medium had too much fabric at the waist so it wasn’t flattering.

Rolled mockneck sweater |  see the details on www.shoppingmycloset.com

Beige rolled neck sweater (here or here)

I slipped into this sweater and it was remarkably soft. Definitely a must if you’re looking for a mockneck sweater

Lavender bell tie sleeve sweater |  see the details on www.shoppingmycloset.com

Lavender bell tie sleeve sweater {5 colors}

A nice twist to a simple sweater without the sleeves being too over the top. I love the soft, romantic purple color

Pink quilted moto bomber jacket | see the details on www.shoppingmycloset.com

Blush pink jacquard/quilted moto bomber jacket (here or here)

Because everyone needs a moto jacket…this one has a cute quilted detail that still looks quite sophisticated

Fuschia pink oversized sweater |  see the details on www.shoppingmycloset.com

Fuschia oversized sweater

This sweater is perfect if you want to be in a cocoon from the cold. The perfect a-little-too-long sleeves along with the high neck. Great for lounging (or at least pretending if you’re wearing it to work).
