Full disclosure: I stared at this coat/skirt combo for the longest time before walking out the door the other day because I just couldn’t quite figure out how badly the colors clashed. After reaching the final verdict (which was just a half-hearted maybe) and hearing Mr. Pepper’s response to the look (which was a hesitant “…interesting”), I decided to try to just go ahead and own the look as best as I could.
Adding as many warm layers as I could, plus a courage-inducing pair of over-sized sunnies and some of my boldest orange lipstick (big smiles included), gave me just the right amount of guts I needed to get my butt out the door.
See below for the full look and outfit details, and feel free to weigh-in on the clash factor in the comments!
