Loving This Week: High Rise Trouser Jeans + a Leopard Coat
Monday, September 14, 2015 • Permalink •
Fall’s popular leopard print can look cheap if not done just right, so I was delighted to find a new vintage-inspired leopard coat that feels posh and is moderately priced. In other Goldilocks-themed shopping news, I also ran across a pair of ‘70s-style jeans than could comfortably pair with flats. Check out all of my online shopping finds for this week below.
Unrelated, but important: this is the first post to appear with Stiletto Jungle’s brand new look. After nine years, it felt like time for an update to better reflect the vibe of the blog today. Love it? Hate it? Run into a glitch? Let me know about it in the comments.
Now, on with the shopping…
1. Emerson Fry Leopard Linen Coat, $475.00
Leopard prints were very popular on the fall runways, but that doesn’t guarantee that this trend will be easy to incorporate into a real life fall wardrobe. Leopard prints often make a piece feel like it belongs in the “after hours” corner of the closet. This new-for-fall leopard coat is crafted from fully lined fall weight linen and based on a demure 1960s style, right down to the vintage print, for a take on the trend that is more downtown chic than femme fatale.
2. Luisa Et La Luna Coco Top, $320.00
I love how this delicately textured navy top creates a perfect square by pairing a cropped torso with ¾ length sleeves. It will look gorgeously modern with the high waist, wide leg trousers and jeans that are so popular for fall.
3. Toms Del Ray Sneaker, $79.95
These grey flannel sneakers feel just right for chilly days, and have just enough of a dressy vibe to look as great with trousers as they do with denim. Plus, there’s the happy feeling you get from purchasing from Toms – with every pair purchased, a pair of new shoes will go to a child in need.
4. Clinique Almost Lipstick in Pink Honey, $17.00
Back in the day, I was a devotee of cult-favorite Black Honey Almost Lipstick. It was truly universally flattering, and felt as light as lip balm. Now this beauty – Pink Honey – just popped up at Sephora as a VIB/ VIB Rouge exclusive color. I can’t resist. Want one for yourself? Just sign up for a free Sephora VIB loyalty card.
5. Madewell Trouser Jeans, $135.00
These high rise, wide leg trouser jeans are right on point for fall. In the sea of similar jeans being offered in stores these stand out for having a rare 33” inseam – the perfect length for wearing with flats for us taller gals, and for pairing with a modest heel for the more petite ladies.
