The Statement Coat
Bonjour from Paris, everyone! If you’ve been following along on Snapchat & Instagram (@chrisellelim), you know that the second we arrived in Paris we went straight to work! It feels so great to be back in this amazing romantic and inspiring city. Between meetings and fittings, shows and fighting jetlag, the team and I have been going nonstop since we landed, and we wouldn’t have it any other way (or if we did want it the other way, we haven’t had time to think about it!).
For my “running-around-town-for-fittings-and-meetings-look”, I wanted something simple, chic and really warm. I threw on these wide-leg jeans (if you were wondering, yes I’m wearing heat-tech leggings under!), a simple black sweater and this amazing camel and faux fur coat (similar here). It’s amazing how a statement coat takes a simple outfit to the next level! When it’s as cold as it is in Paris right now (it’s about 33 ° F right now), chances are, you’re going to have your coat on for most of the day. And since a coat covers up most of what you’re wearing, it’s important that it makes an impact on your look! I finished off the look with some amazing booties, my Céline sunnies (the perfect way to look chic and cover up the jetlagged bags under your eyes!) and my Chanel bag (similar here)!
