Winter Color Outfit Inspiration
I’ve had my eye on this Blank NYC Suede Moto Jacket from Anthropologie since the Spring, and when they had their Black Friday 30% off sale, I finally pulled the trigger and purchased it, even though it won’t be warm enough to really wear it for a few months still. Blank NYC is a moderately priced brand with good quality and unique modern designs, and this jacket is very flattering as it comes in at the waist and is tight through the body and sleeves with a bit of edge. And of course the color truly makes it a statement piece.
As a finishing touch, I chose my new wardrobe splurge (also from Black Friday/Cyber Monday Sales) – a Mark Cross Benchley Bag in Salmon Pink. I saw it on a huge sale on SAKS.com and had to have it (sold out unfortunately, but I found a few similar ones — see below). It’s classic and structured, with a bit of a vintage-y feel and a timeless shape. I was reading up about the company and was really impressed with their heritage (apparently, they were America’s first luxury leather goods company, originated in 1845), and was also curious to find out that they actually had a big comeback after they closed their doors in the 1990’s and resurrected in 2011. I love that their bags aren’t adorned with excessive branding, making them even more elegant.
Hope this look inspires you to pull some colorful accessories and details into your looks for the Season. I would love to see the outfits you create adding some color to a basic neutral palette for Winter — please do share them on Instagram using hashtag #ModnitsaColor – and I’ll be sure to repost them on my Insta Stories!
