All Black

Comfort doesn't always have to mean jeans and a t-shirt. A maxi dress layered under a cozy coat can be just as easy. Add flat boots and a hat and you've got a chic look that works grabbing cocktails or just taking in the local holiday spirit.

I've had this faux sherpa coat for a few years now and this season it feels more right than ever. I've come up empty finding the perfect faux fur coat so far but this still does it for me until the right one comes along.

This maxi shirt dress I picked up at Zara last year is surprisingly quite the wardrobe workhorse. It was great with slides and a leather jacket in the fall and I'm loving it layered with tights and boots for now.

The Blazer Alternative

Let's face it, blazers can be really boring. More often than not, the only variation is color (black or grey?) or the number of buttons (single button or two?). Blazer alternatives, ranging from moto to bomber styles, let you add some personality to your otherwise lackluster work wardrobe. They also do double duty, pairing easily with denim or layered over a cute dress for the weekend. Look for special fabrics like lace, boucle, or colorful tweeds. Leather details and color or fabric blocking keep the look edgy. 

My picks are all that and more- and a few of them are up to 80% off. Again, all thanks to Amazon
