Street Smart: East Coast Chic

Posted on

I will never forget the day I discovered my friend, Claudia, is from San Francisco, California. Not one person in our French class would be able to tell as Claudia, since the beginning of the semester, has made a consistent impression each day with her East coast style. Day in and day out she dresses meticulously in fall’s best fashions, adorning her neck with vivid scarves and dressing her feet with the cutest boot around. It’s hard not to love her East coast cold weather fashion, especially her penchant for mixing neutrals with bright jewel tones.

This outfit was no exception. Her structured red pea coat and adorable knit hobo hat create an almost Sex and the City, Upper East Side chic look. The outfit was perfect for a chilly Sunday afternoon as Claudia busily spent the day studying and running errands, a vision in just the right mix of comfort and glamour.

Here’s the breakdown:
