Statement Coat & Sweater Cardigan Lookbook

Statement Coat & Sweater Cardigan Lookbook | Designing From My Closet | Plus & Inbetweenie Fashion Blog

I have been planning on doing this post for quite some time and the weather here in Southern California has not been cooperating with me to be able to wear cold-weather outfits so I hope I am not featuring this too late in the game.  Statement outerwear is something I always looked forward to when I lived in the Midwest.

Be it coats, sweaters, cardigans, or ponchos, I love having a variety of patternful and colorful options to choose from when there is a chill in the air.  While I know some of you are experiencing loads of snow, my footwear or under layers may not work, but I wanted this four outfit Lookbook I put together to give inspiration to you when putting looks together for the remainder of the winter.  All of these looks are inspired by interior design and I hope you enjoy.

This kimono shaped sweater cardigan is not from the plus size collection, but the shape allows me to wear it with ease.  The Aztec pattern and blue accent color is in direct coorilation with the pillow and wall color from the interior design inspiration.  By pairing this statement piece with a basic tee and jeans, it elevates them to ultra cool casual status.

This sweater coat is a dream come true for me.  It is the most I have ever paid for a single piece of clothing probably since my wedding gown.  I saved up for several months and got it on sale right at the last minute before it sold out.  I have no regrets spending what I did because I absolutely love it.  The vintage cane back chair in the inspiration picture is one I reupholstered myself in this beautiful blue and green Ikat fabric.  I love the sky blue pillow on it and how it takes life in fashion through the pullover sweater underneath the coat.  The long length of the sweater and crisp white jeans give this a winter wonderland feel.

I wanted to do a little bit of pattern mixing with this coat so when I looked at this interior design inspiration, the floral artwork jumped out at me, especially because my coat resembles my pillows on the sofa.  My floral blouse peeks through just enough to give a lovely contrast against the linear abstract print of the coat.  A cinch belt gives this coat a little bit of shape as well.

When I painted this over scale pattern on my master bedroom wall, it made a bold statement as well as setting the tone for the entire space.  The same is the case with this patterned poncho.  By draping it over a simple sweater dress, it takes on an elegant vibe.  Some gold “hardware” in form of a modern pendant necklace and a colorful handbag, similar to how the green in the room pops, complete this look.

So there you have it, four ways to style a statement over piece from casual to dressy.  Do you have a favorite?  I love them all as they each have a unique flavor.  I selected a few more pieces that I would love to have myself, but I can’t buy them all, so I am sharing them with you!  Ok, so maybe I just got #4 from my mini collection below that you will be seeing soon styled on the blog (Update: See it on my post Aztec Print Coatigan Styled Two Ways).  Like my own personal collection, I pulled everything from coats to cardigans to ponchos in various styles, shapes, colors, and price ranges.
