Looking chic in wet weather

Being fashionable is a full time job, and rain, snow, and storms can not stand in your way. Normally I don’t have to deal with much weather, but even I have been subjected to some rather wet days{gasp! In San Diego??} as of late. So rather then let the gray skies bring us down, I say lets celebrate the opportunity to look oh so chic in jackets and boots! Every gal needs a pair of wellies, perfect for pulling over jeans or for the more brave, rocking with tall socks and skirts. They are comfortable, functional and of course available in all types of yummy colors and practically every price point. I love Hunter brand boots, and this pink fuchsia color is perfect for adding some cheer to a raining day.{or a sunny day for that matter!}

Ok, now that your feet are covered lets move onto the oh so important jacket. Trench coats are perfect for pulling together an outfit and giving coverage and warmth without adding bulk. These versatile jackets have been around for ages and are therefore available in just about every color, pattern and price point available. If you are wanting to try something a bit more trendy with the pattern, try this Merona Striped Long Trench which is right on with the nautical trend for spring. I love the cheery yellow and crisp white contrast, and it is a total steal!

Lastly, check out this beauty of a jacket, the Zooey Heavy Fleece Coat. The jacket is full of details, adding loads of fringe and style! The hood is perfect for protecting your coiffure, the big buttons, flared sleeves, and drop waist all add to the awesomeness that is this jacket. This would be perfect with skinny jeans and wellies!

Explosive Style: The Bomber Jacket from Zooey

Bomber Jacket from Zoey

Zooey Bomber Jacket

The hip Bomber Jacket by Zooey by Alice Heller is the perfect must have for this fall.  Short, cropped jackets are so in this season and truly are the perfect pieces to exemplify fall fashion trends.  This designer jacket from Zooey is a perfect mix of comfort and style.  I love this Bomber Jacket for so many reasons.  Believe it or not this jacket is 100% washable and 100% soft cotton!  I love to pair this jacket with skinny jeans and boots.  Another detail I love is the button up collar that actually buttons all the way up which gives you limitless possibilities for styling.  There are even pockets in the front.   The jacket flairs above the waist, but still features a waist band in back to give it a fitted look.   As an added feminine touch, the waist band in back actually scoops up to give it a distinctive, feminine look.  Which if women’s  jackets can’t be feminine and stylish then what’s the point?   This jacket is currently available at Vintage Fringe in both black and midnight (navy blue).   Best of all – this jacket is currently on sale so get yours today while supplies last!

Winter Must Haves – Jackets by Zooey Clothing

Zooey Clothing has so many different designer clothing styles to love, but today we’re focused on their fabulous jackets.  With cold weather in full swing, having the perfect hip, stylish designer jacket is practically a necessity!  What we love about these jackets is their unique twist on the typical hum drum standard jacket style.

Alice Heller at Zooey has made sure to design jackets that have stylish twists to the traditional jacket style.  By way of illustration, check out the Heavy Fleece Hooded Jacket featuring flared sleeves and collar.   We also love the hood.  The best part is that the hood is somewhat subtle, so it isn’t over the top, but it fits with the overall stylish design of the jacket.  You can’t forget the buttons either.  With buttons on the cuffs as well, Zooey made sure that no details were forgotten with this awesome jacket.  And last, but certainly not least, the fabrics.
