Lapel Coat + Vinyl Pants

Claudia Di Capua

Sweater: H&MCoat: SheInPants: H&MShoes: & Other Stories (Similar here) / Sunglasses: DiorBag: Express

The Look

A long lapel coat is a must for late fall/winter! I love them because they can be thrown over literally everything, giving your look an effortless feel. I normally like to wear mine with a chunky scarf, but decided not to this time around to give these vinyl pants the spotlight. Long coats work as a great layering option because they always complement whether you are looking to do a monochrome look or color block look. I often like to wear all grey with this coat, but throwing a bold color under there would have worked as well! This coat has a great street style fit and classic look all in one, which is why you must find one if you haven’t already! Asos and Topshop often. Have great options!

Moving on to the pants. I had been very interested in the whole vinyl craze leading up to this shoot, so I was super excited to share my experience with them in a post. To say the least, they are epic! I love the shine and focal point they create even when wearing g all neutral colors. They are super cool if you are ok with a few interested stares. One recommendation I have is to make sure that you find a pair that don’t make noise as you walk. The ones I’m wearing make a slight noise when I walk, so definitely don’t skimp out on price as you need to pay for the material quality. I know Topshop has a very popular pair, which I have linked above!

I bought these & Other Stories slip on shoes about 3 years ago and sort of put them to the side after one use. I’m so glad I didn’t get rid of them and that they are in perfect condition because I’m OBSESSED with them now! They are all leather with studding on the top, which honestly is what sold me. They take inspiration from men’s dress shoes, but the pointed toe and smoothness of the leather are what make them more feminine. I linked a few similar ones since these are course out of stock now! 

As for accessories, I went with my Dior So Real sunglasses, which I’l have forever. They are like art to me (love the brow bar)! I’ve wanted an Acne scarf for a while, but I accidentally came across a similar version at Free People and it’s been a staple ever since. This scarf is so soft and amazing for the price. Now is the time to start eyeing what you are going to jump on during those Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales!

Leopard Print in Soho

Claudia Di Capua


Dress: LoaviesJacket: Ivy Revel Boots: GuessSunglasses: Ray-Ban

The Look

Prints - Something I have stayed away from like the plague, until now. I have seriously warmed up to the whole leopard print deal. I saw this dress online and figured why not try it. I will warn you that although I bought this dress on Loavies, they do not pay for return or exchange shipping from the US back to Europe, which ends up costing more than the dress itself. I ended up buying two of the same dress and am now selling one of them (let me know if you are interested)! Make sure you nail your size the first time around and you'll be golden!

The dress is similar to something you'd find at Zara or Mango, which I was fine with given the great price I got it for. I love how flowy it is and how I can layer it. This dress works for three out of the four seasons and all it takes is a little creativity with layering and shoe choice! I could wear it in the spring with a simple heel, but also in the fall with a sweater and light jacket plus a pair of OTK boots. I could get even sportier and wear it with sneakers as well. So many possibilities! 

Subtle and simple details can really add to a look. For example, I grappled with wearing a pair of shorter combat boots with this, but figured it would be slightly too cold. The faux fur on the sleeves of the coat sort of mirror the animal theme we have going with the dress. The ties on the hips of the dress as well as the neck make the dress much more feminine and the gold details on the bag and sunglasses make everything look more luxe. Try a few of these things out and I promise, your look will stand out just a little but more!

Repurposing Summer Pieces for Fall Layers

Claudia Di Capua

Sweater: Della Ciana Cashmere (Similar here) / Dress: Rails LA via RevolveScarf: Urban OutfittersBoots: AsosBag: Haute Look (Very similar here) / Sunglasses: Ray-Ban

The Look

One of my favorite styles this season happens to be the layered skirt/dress. This is where an oversized sweater and accessories layers on top of a flowy dress or skirt. I got this dress in the summer as you may remember I wore it in Greece (check out that post here)! This layering technique is an easy way to extend its seasonal shelf life. I wore a pair of warm socks and a quality cashmere sweater to keep me warm since my legs were out. I was totally fine and comfortable despite the windy day! Throwing on a scarf helped too! It's super important to wear quality jackets/sweaters when doing this to compensate for heat loss since your legs are exposed.

I was thinking about how many sweaters and dresses I currently have and found that I have an endless supply of this look in various lengths, shapes and colors. Take a look in your closet and you probably have all of the pieces to pull a look like this together as well! I'm excited to try this look using cooler colors like grey and blue with a mid length dress and combat boots once it gets a little colder. 

Pointed toe shoes are a must right now! I'm in love with these ones from Asos. Quick Tip: if the ankle of the shoe isn't very fitted, you can give the illusion of a closer fit by wearing taller socks like I am in the photos. These boots are so useable and go with everything! I have found the Asos and Nordstrom have the best styles for the best prices!
