I Love Jackets

Let’s chat about outerwear, Queens. Here in Pittsburgh, we could be reaching for ours as early as September. In autumn I lean toward light weight, knee length trench coats and leather jackets. In the winter, I pair wool coats with leather gloves and berets. For a casual vibe, layer hoodies under coats. In my opinion, nobody does casual chill better than Alexx Coll.

Nice Knits, Queen!

When I think of knit wear, I envision Zara models in chunky sweaters (jumpers for you Brits). Basics should make up 80% of your wardrobe. In the colder months, my knit tops are a staple. To add some charm I adore them pinned with fancy brooches. They are equally chic paired with a simple wool beret and statement sunglasses. Pleated skirts, leather pants, or skinny jeans complete the look and leave you feeling polished and put together. Check out Zara, H&M, JCrew, and Vici for the latest staple knit wear!
