DOUBLE LIFE

KTR_2151

One of my favorite periods of the year to play around with fashion is definitely fall/winter. It is the perfect time to experiment with layering, interesting coats, scarfs, boots, beanies. There are so many options and so much room for creativity. It is less about the outfit you wear underneath, and more about the outerwear you pick which becomes your statement of the season. So pick wisely!

I always have so much fun choosing my coats as there are so many options out there right now. Since I know that I’ll be freezing in winter, I tend to gravitate towards cuts with a bit of a high neck and ultra long sleeves. However, you might not want to look like a refrigerator all packed up in your ultra layers of wool, so a coat with a sleek cut is definitely a plus to lengthen and slim down your silhouette.

As soon as I saw this Virginia coat from Fay, I knew if would be a great statement for this season as it’s so different, unique and original. I loved the stripped sleeves, the burgundy color, the sleek cut, the high neck and the bold metallic details. Everything about it stood out to me. It’s best quality seems to be that even though it’s quiet an eccentric piece, it seems to fit to everything and to any situation. I think that it’s shade and design that is perfect for everyday life and completes any winter look quite amazingly.

It’s actually the perfect representation of a versatile piece for this winter season. It can be easily worn over a cocktail dress for a night out or a super cool effortless look to spend the day out in the city. It’s a great statement piece that fits in this idea of double life : a transition from day to night, or from work to leisure time! It’s your goal to get playful and creative on how to reinterpret it perfectly with your own codes!

It’s a cool statement piece that I’ve noticed myself wearing all the time these past couple of weeks. Whether it was to walk around in the busy streets of New York in the middle of the rain, while checking in my hotel in London with all my suitcases or even just while chilling, it just felt right.

You look great. I make a coat for myself every year and I take care of the same things you mention here: warmth and cut. ^^

Amazing vest and bag, this is such a gorgeous outfit! Love the way you style all of your looks!

The coat is very interesting and you look great in it:) Fay has got really nice coats and cuts for this season.

You look so glamourous in these photos – as per usual. I never really liked dressing for winter because I feel so bulky & heavy walking around with so many layers on but after experiencing a really cold winter, I can appreciate how it keeps you so warm during colder months & I agree that it’s one of the best times for experimenting with outfits.

Love the look here.

Gorgeous coat! As you mentioned, it is indeed a unique piece and I have never seen a design like it! Particularly love the sporty chic vibe from the striped prints on the sleeves and the high collar, such a fun piece that is sleek too!

Black + white + burgundy color palette is one of the reasons to love winter. For me it’s a traditionally winter thing)

I also think that fall winter is perfect for being creative, because there are so much more layers for put and design.
I like this outfit, also colors too.

Hi Kristina!

You look gorgous as always! I was wondering if you could tell me where your beanie is from in the first couple of pictures?
Thanks!

The coat truly is amazing. The style is very unique and I love how you combined it. What I also really like is the clutch in the first pictures, it matches the colour of the coat so perfectly! The pictures in the rain are sooo nice as they realy convey the cold winterish atmosphere :)

You are so right, that is one seriously fantastic coat! I like how you dress is up and down all in one sweep. I’m such a sucker for burgundy and it’s such a great color on you.

This coat looks like a mix of military and letterman jacket. It’s a tad quirky but well-balanced. I love the streamlined cut paired with the fun stripes on the sleeves, looks very versatile. Adoring this coat now!

This coat is my dope now ♥

I love everything about this outfit! The colors, the flawless layering, the shoes, the hat…

I guess you don’t get a chance to wear fall things as much anymore because you moved to LA. I’d trade fall fashion for warm weather any day though! I guess I’ve just been traumatized by New York’s bitter winters.
