Style Guide: Brighten up Fall With a Coloured Jacket

As the weather gets cooler, you know what that means...it's time to bring out those jackets!

Now, I more so prefer weather that does not require a jacket, however, I do enjoy rocking a light jacket during the Fall and Sping months. Jackets can be a fun fashion piece to add to any outfit and dress it up or add some character to a look. With that said, I'm all about a rocking a coloured jacket. A coloured jacket provides a nice pop of colour to your look and allows you stand out. As we are now well into the Fall, for this look I chose to rock my favourite orange coat, a perfect colour for this season...

In addition to coloured jackets, I love ones that are structured. I find structured coats to be very chic and edgy which falls in line with my personal style. With this look, I kept it very casual with a bit of edge to achieve an urban streetstyle look. Therefore, the addition of my structured orange jacket brings a chic element to my look.

Tip: Long jackets (thigh length and longer) are best with wool and trench coats. Short jackets (hip length and above) are best with leather jackets

Jacket: Bedo / Watch: Timex / Bracelet: Winners
Pants: Target
To bring a edgy streetstyle vibe to my look, I wore a pair of ripped denim jeans. Moroever, I also accessorized with a a 3-tier chain link necklace as well as an orange and blue tasseled bracelet. I kept my top simple with a black tank, however the double traps are a nice added detail.

Top: Ardene
Necklace: Material Girl

To finish off my look, I rocked a pair of lace up booties and a small structured bang with a pompom.

Tip: Lace up boots are perfect for the fall, therefore lace-up booties are a nice alternative to dress up a look.

Bag: Primark

Shoes: Charlotte Russe

If you don't have a coloured Fall jacket yet, its is definitely a 'must have' to add to your wardrobe.

...and if you can find a nice orange one, that's even better! lol :)

Well, I'm off to go shop for more Fall jackets. What is another great Fall colour I should consider?
