Fall Wardrobe Staples: Trenchcoat & Blanket Scarf

You guys, I’m sorry it has been soon long since I last posted! I started a new teaching job at a local High School, and I’ve been so busy getting my classroom ready and then focusing on teaching, somehow it has been two months since I’ve posted! But don’t worry, I’ve got some great posts planned for fall wardrobe staples. I’ve picked some of my favorite fall trends that are classic pieces that you will get a lot of mileage and use from in your closet!

Trench coat and Blanket Scarf

Two of the pieces I have styled today are a classic khaki trench coat and a plaid blanket scarf.  Trench coats are a great piece to own because you can wear them throughout the year. They transition season to season very nicely, and they never go out of style. They are a great purchase and I think everyone should own one! No matter your outfit, if you throw on a trench coat, your classiness gets bumped up like three hundred points.

Blanket scarves have been a huge trend the last few years, and I’m not sure they are going anywhere anytime soon.  They can seem really intimidating at first because of their size, but as soon as you try one on, you’ll see what all the rave is about! They are so comfortable.  And they get their name because they really are as big as a small blanket! My favorite time to wear one is to the movie theaters, because I unfold it and use it as a blanket during the movie… haha (I can’t be the only one who freezes through movies, right??). Because of their size, blanket scarves are a statement piece. Throw one on over a pain t-shirt and jeans, and you will look fab. They are so easy to add flare to your fall wardrobe!

I paired my trench coat and blanket scarf with a striped shirt and a leopard print bag with some booties. Like I said before, the blanket scarf is a statement piece, so I didn’t want to go too crazy with everything else. But if you’ve been following along with me for awhile, you’ll know I love to mix patterns! So that’s what I did here with the plaid, stripes, and leopard print.
