Outfit Idea: Winter Whites With A Pop Of Metallic + This Stunning Plaid Coat


This post is sponsored by Nordstrom + Collective Voice

I’m so into the monochromatic neutrals this year and what better way to show off a beautiful plaid coat for the holidays than with a pop of pretty white shades beneath? A combo like this can go to the office, to lunch, out for holiday shopping, to a family dinner…honestly, there are few places I think an all-ivory look with a statement coat couldn’t take you.

A Fresh Outfit Idea From Nordstrom: Winter Whites, Metallic Accessories + A Plaid Coat

These little formulas make getting ready just a heck of a lot easier. And I felt so chic and pulled together in this plaid coat look without having any fussy bits or bobs to deal with…ie. tights, shapewear, fancy heels, etc.

I’m a person who is very particular about plaids but when I saw this Avec Les Filles coat I was instantly smitten. And though I wear it with just about everything (it’s so soft!) I love being able to make it truly stand out with this combo. Let’s get into the deets.

The Base Outfit: Pretty Winter Whites Featuring These $88 Wit & Wisdom Pants

All of these lovely pieces I’m wearing can be found at Nordstrom, which is always a real bonus, eh? Let’s start by discussing the comfort + chic factor of these Wit & Wisdom trousers.

These pants are the perfect blend of affordable, comfy and chic. They have a nice wide leg for drama but an inner elastic waistband for a great fit and the easy-to-wear factor we know and love from Wit & Wisdom. They are an interesting combo of carpenter-jeans-meet-trousers and I love them. They fit true to size and can take you a variety of places.

I wanted to lean a little more chic here so I went with the monochromatic vibe with this soft cabled sweater from BP and the Marc Fisher boots I’ve had for months and love.

Monochromatic Look Fit Info: The sweater and boots run true to size and this sweater is incredibly soft, friends. It comes in a light gray, as well. The trousers also fit true but I would size down if you’re between sizes. The boots are outfit-makers and I’ve been wearing them constantly for months with all of my wide leg jeans and pants.

Just Add Holiday Vibes: This Gorgeous Plaid Coat + Metallic Bag

To finish out this easy-to-wear look, I added the beloved coat and a fun metallic silver bag from Madewell. The tote adds that bit of shine and fun for the holidays but is still easily wearable for everyday. I adore an over-the-top holiday moment sometimes, but mostly I’d rather invest in pieces I can wear all winter long.

Plaid Coat Fit Info: This coat runs just slightly big but is perfect for layering over sweaters, sweatshirts, etc. It’s so soft, almost like wearing a cardigan, but it has the structure of a true coat. I don’t throw around perfect lightly but I think it really is!
