This past weekend was the first that really felt like Fall in Atlanta. Dare I say there was a bit of a chill in the air. Of course, the New Yorker in me took the opportunity to immediately pull out long sleeves and my new favorite coat.
I spotted this coat while shopping at Zara in Dublin, Ireland. But never fear, it’s available in the U.S. as well! The menswear-inspired silhouette is slightly oversized, so I ended up going down a size. I love the shape, the length, the masculine touches- most notably the print. The checked design is uniquely Fall and pairs perfectly with all black. I also love that the color palette is subtle, but has a streak of yellow for a modern touch.
I paired my new coat with all black (a bodysuit and ripped jeans) and a nude sock boot. For those who want to buy into the sock boot trend, I highly recommend these, also from Zara. The comfort is insane, and the color looks rich in person. I think it will be gorgeous on fair skin, and the slightly milky shade looks high fashion on darker skin like mine.
All in all, Zara has some great pieces for Fall, and I can’t wait to pair these two new pieces with more in my closet. The opportunities are endless!
