Some styles withstand the test of time. Oversized, cocoon coats and jackets are among them. Remember the 30s and 40s svelte movie stars in oversized black and neutral coats? And who can forget Audrey Hepburn in her famous orange cocoon coat in 'Charade'! The carefree yet sophisticated vibe of this style is everlasting. I am loving the bold, vibrant colored, oversized coats this year. This H&M coat is right on the money in terms of its stand out color and chic silhouette (although you may need to size down, as I feel it runs a little big even for a oversize style). I am debating if I should keep this or exchange for a size down. I need to hurry up to make a decision as the sizes are selling out quickly. I am wearing a size 6 (my usual H&M size) and I think size 4 would be better for me in terms of shoulders and back fitting. But I love the drape, feel and color.
This mixed material tote from AVON is a great addition to any Fall wardrobe. The chic metal bar handle and faux- pony hair front gives it a sophisticated, edgy appeal. Great for work too as it is pretty roomy for zips and inner pockets. Best part - it is under $50!

For me, fall is the best season for style. I get the variety of textures to play with - from suede to wool to leather and color palette has no boundaries - from black and grey to richly luscious colors that complement the colorful vista of the landscape.! But the dipping mercury poses a challenge in looking fabulous without feeling too bulky or 'bundle up' like. That's when you go back to basics! And by basics I mean the essential wardrobe staple of layering T-shirts and tanks that keep you looking chic and feeling cozy and comfortable. One brand that is making layering easy and fun is Bobi Los Angeles. Started as a women’s contemporary t-shirt line, this brand has taken to the fancy of celebrities and fashion world alike. Now Bobi Los Angeles specializes in fashion basics, dresses and tunics with unique cuts, longer lengths, and unusual details that stand out fabulously! I met the designer Kara Lusardi during Bobi Los Angeles Spring 2015 collection preview and fell in love with the native New Yorker's charming personality and creativity. She now calls Los Angeles her home but you can see the edgy New York aesthetic mixed with devil-may-care California vibe in her creations. Their slim fit and superior fabric makes them the Fall must have for anyone looking to layer up in style!

The long tunics can be styled with tank tops and swing tanks with unexpected details. Comfort, meet chic!
Three layers on a 45 degree weather and I feel light as a bird!! Thanks to Bobi Los Angeles! You can buy Bobi Los Angeles and Bobi Black (their more formal line with sophisticated dresses and fun jumpsuits) at the premier boutiques ( Like Fred Segal) all over USA and Europe and online at Revolve Clothing

I am a big fan of cape coats for winter. But it is not always easy to find a great cape coat that is billowy and loose yet doesn't make you look lost in all the volume. Until this week when I finally found a great cape that is actually a mix between a belted coat and cape! Ann Taylor Buttoned Up Boiled Wool Cape was a love-at-first-sight for me. It is perfect for layering on top sweaters, with jeans or dresses and it is pretty light weight yet warm. It is true cape style but cinches at the waist with a belt and buttons up at the front for a more polished look. BTW, on the website the color looks smokey gray but in person it has more blue in. I love the color though, not Navy nor black, just a midnight blue/black that goes with everything! If you are looking for a cape, this is it!
