The Perfect Outfit: A Bundled-Up Black Ensemble That's One For the Books

perfect-outfit-black-cocoon
The black wool coat doesn't get much love in the sartorial court of law, but when it comes to winter staples, it's a definite must-have. To set yourself apart from the Wall-Street-set, choose a coat in an unexpected shape, like a cocoon version like Amanda from Copenhagen Street Style has on (or try a swing coat for a retro feel). To finish, pair with a textured scarf, a sturdy shoe, and nubby sock. Cute, functional, and your guaranteed to keep the chilly air at bay, this perfect outfit gets two mitten-ed thumbs up from us!
