How to Give Your Classic Coat a Modern Refresh

Here’s our fresh take on updating your winter staples. For those who don’t always feel like methodically layering shirt, under sweatshirt, under jacket, under heavy coat, opt for the layer that does it all, heavy duty shearling. No longer just Amelia Earheart’s favorite aviator staple, a shearling coat has become a chic calling-card for the street style set. Heading London way for fashion week? Wrap up!! 

Yoyo Cao knows that when it comes to coats, it does matter what’s on the inside that counts. She pairs her chic shearling with oil-slick patent accoutrements and tough accessories. The punk-meets-futuristic pieces update her coat’s vintage vibes. Keep the rest of the look simple with a t-shirt and shoulder bag. 

Which brings us to the finishing touch, the last thing you put on as you go out the door (besides another layer of gloss over the lips) your shoes! Since you might be feeling a bit monotonous, slip into something that says, business up top, party down south. From printed ankle boots to metallic heels, your shoes are what will seal the deal. Break a leg!
