Red Plaid Coat + Bell Bottom Jeans

Outfit Details

I have been wearing this red coat all week because I just can’t get enough. There is something about this coat that reminds me of the 70’s and so I decided to go full on retro today with this look. I wanted to avoid looking too costume-y so I made sure to keep this look fresh by not wearing polyester and high-waisted jeans. Instead, I opted for a form fitting turtleneck, a pair of Calvin Klein mid rise bell bottom jeans, (purchased BNWT at Goodwill) a pair of leopard platform booties and a drawstring (bucket) purse. Of course, I had to accessorize with one of the most iconic looks of the seventies by wearing the floppy fedora hat! I also wore gloves because it was freezing cold, which explains why I don’t have photos of the top and jeans only; there was no way I was taking the coat off. I did get a little creative with the gloves by accessorizing with a gold plated chain wrapped around my gloves. The bag is actually a splurge purchase I made about 4/5 years ago and it is one of my favorite bags. How do you know its my favorite purse? I rarely wear them, lol. I’m trying to be better about that but I just don’t want to ruin it.
